UNICEF supports families and children in Fafin displacement camp, north rural Aleppo, Syria with water, sanitation and hygiene In Fafin camp for displaced families in northern rural Aleppo, hundreds of families have taken shelter since January 2018, having fled escalating violence in Afrin district, northwest of Aleppo. They are living in rudimentary dire conditions, compounding their vulnerability after years of displacement and loss of livelihoods.
“I’m glad I can wash my hands and drink clean water whenever I need to,”
“I can’t imagine life without it! Water is everything. Simply, without it we cannot live,”
Thanks to a generous contribution from the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), UNICEF installed latrines, showers, solar power water heaters and semi-automatic washers, improving the access of around 3,400 people in the camp to essential water and sanitation facilities. To maximize the capacity of storing safe drinking water, UNICEF also installed 128 water tanks across the camp, regularly maintained.
