06 January 2015

Damaged sewerage systems are placing 50,000 people at serious risk in the Gazan town of Beit Hanoun.

"We have to repair basic infrastructure as quickly as possible," explains ICRC water engineer Sara Badei. "This means getting materials and resources to where they're needed. The ICRC has done a lot already, but there's much more still to be done." In this video, Sara explains the consequences of mixing drinking water and sewage.
