Water is essential for life
"The most important thing for a mother is the health of her children"
In 2013, Yousif and Hajar with their six children fled from Syria and came to Domiz camp. They faced many challenges, such as not having a place to stay in and not having a job to support them financially. Domiz was a new place for them, and there was little aid available.
“Now we have almost everything to survive, and we thank everyone who contributed in providing water for us. Water is essential for life. We can’t live without it.” Yousif said.
With funds from the United States Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, UNICEF provides targeted support focusing on water, sanitation, and hygiene for more than 5,000 refugees that live in Domiz camp.
The most important thing for a mother is the health of her children. When I see my children drinking clean water, I am confident that they won’t get any diseases,
UNICEF and partners ensure that the water is safe for drinking and all domestic chores. The continued donations are essential for maintaining the water infrastructure and regular quality testing.
The safe, clean supply of water makes Hajar’s life a lot easier especially doing laundry for a family with six children.
Yousif, the proud father of the family, came from a humble background. He could not finish his education as he needed to work to support his parents. He has higher dreams for his children. Although the future life of Yousif and his family is uncertain, he is doing his best to make sure his children finish their education, because he thinks that with education his children will have better opportunities in their life.
