Since the start of the crisis, the availability of water in Syria has decreased by one third. This has been due to extensive damage to water systems across Syria.
The lack of available water is having a serious added effect on areas which have seen a high influx of displaced communities.
Syria Relief is working to ensure that communities have access to sustainable clean water and appropriate sanitation for domestic, construction, industrial and agricultural use.
We have built and repaired water systems across Syria. A functioning water system can serve water to a whole village, usually to tens of thousands of people. Syria Relief have undertaken the repair of a number of damaged systems, at the same time ensuring that members of the local communities are trained to undertake repairs, enabling them to be self-sufficient in future. Through our water projects, we have provided access to clean water to over 100,000 Syrians.
