WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene)
Assistance for Syrian refugees and affected populations in Tripoli/T5wash

The Syrian civil war has created one of the largest humanitarian crises in modern history. One of the challenges that has evolved out of this difficult situation is the fact that Water and Sanitation measures in these areas are now threatened by the increased population and demand for potable drinking water, and measures for dealing with the amount of waste generated by the larger numbers of people.

RMF in partnership with CISP and funding from the UNHCR have implemented a project whose objectives included:

  • Improve access to safe drinking water
  • Improve waste water systems
  • Improve solid waste management and dumping sites
  • Increasing awareness and building capacity for better hygiene practices and WASH facilities operations and maintenance.

RMF was in charge of:

1– Establishing 8 WASH Committees in each village

2- Training for the WASH committee members

3- 750 persons (Lebanese and Syrians) will benefit from awareness sessions on WASH and booklets will be distributed.

4- 8 Handover ceremonies
