Water and habitat: ICRC activities

09-03-2012 Feature

The ICRC is helping provide water and sanitation for over 20 million people in 48 countries affected by conflict, violence, or their after-effects. Working with the authorities, Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and communities, the ICRC repairs war-damaged pipe networks, keeps water supplies drinkable, delivers water and provides toilets and latrines. As well as preventing disease, safe water and decent sanitation can restore a measure of dignity to people suffering the effects of conflict.
