WATAN continues to work in partnership with UNICEF in 14 camps in the areas of: Harem, Maarat Al Akhwan, Batabo, Ad Dana all of which are in the northern countryside of Idlib. This was as part of the emergency response project with the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene campaign. WATAN continues to supply drinking water in the camps, monitoring the levels of chlorine in the water containers and tanks, this in terms enhances personal and public hygiene, and reduces the financial burden of the people.
In the interest of hygiene and sanitation, the transfer of solid waste continues in the previously mentioned camps, which helps reduce the spread of unpleasant odours in the area. Regularly cleaning out the septic tanks and lavatories in the camps also reduces the number of leakages in these areas. These activities reduce the number insects in the area, decreasing the transmission of infectious disease, especially diseases such as leishmaniasis.
