More information about this loan
This loan is designed by FATEN to provide safe drinking water to the Palestinian people. In the Gaza Strip, aquifers suffer from increased pollution and waste as a result of the ongoing political conflict, over-pumping and pollution from waste-disposal sites. According to the UN and other international aid organizations, polluted drinking water in Gaza is a major cause of disease and malnutrition, especially among children. Aquifers are becoming increasingly polluted in the West Bank as well, mostly caused by waste from sewage facilities. By funding this loan, you are ensuring that individuals have the opportunity to purchase home purification systems and have access to clean drinking water.
