WASH in conflict zones

Every day WSSCC members work steadfastly towards providing water, sanitation and hygiene for people who lack access. Some of our WASH Coalitions encounter the added challenge of labouring towards this goal in conflict zones, where hundreds of thousands of people can be displaced, forced to abandon their homes and resettle in other areas. In 2007, there were 26 million internally displaced persons in at least 52 countries as a result of conflict . Public toilets, water storage, distribution infrastructure, and homes can all be destroyed in military operations. When ensuring the safety of their family becomes people's number one priority, sanitation can slip down the list.
