Voices from Gaza – The Oxfam manager: “This is how we try to bring drinking water to displaced people. In the camps people are dying of thirst”

The population of Gaza Stripnow concentrated mainly in the south of Rafahhas been facing a dramatic situation for months now lack of drinking water. A shortage that was already plaguing the Strip before October 7, and which the bombings, blackouts and lack of fuel have made unsustainable. In fact, many people are forced to drink contaminated water or sea water, with all that this entails in terms of hygiene, health and the spread of diseases. Because of this Oxfam was activated through a collaboration with the Palestinian association Friends of the Environment to provide five solar-powered desalination plants. And soon another six will be active. “These desalination units – explains a manager of the organization – are crucial because people they die of thirst and are forced to drink non-potable water. Since the beginning of the Israeli offensive in Gaza, the power plant has stopped. All water wells, structures, desalination units and water pumps are not working because there is no fuel. And some water wells and desalination units were destroyed by the Israeli army.”

The story is part of a series of testimonies collected by Oxfam operators and managers in Gaza who ilfattoquotidiano.it decided to publish. The goal is to have a first-person account from civilians in Gaza, those who are currently paying the highest price for the conflict.

THE PETITION – No significant humanitarian response can occur without an immediate ceasefire. This is why Oxfam has launched an urgent appeal to the Italian government and European leaders which can be joined on:
