Of Harf Beit Hassna’s 389 households, 173 don’t receive government-supplied water and 216 receive water at a significantly lower quantity than the WHO’s recommended daily standard of 60L per person. With no municipal authority and an under-resourced water authority, residents in one of the poorest regions in Lebanon must resort to expensive water trucking or unhygienic water reuse practices.

Current Activities
