Description : The infrastructure of Southern Lebanon was heavily damaged in the war that ended in a cease fire on the 14th of August. Both the electricity and water systems were seriously damaged and getting them up and running is now a priority for the population that sat out the war or has moved back. The public health is at stake, so restoring electricity and water is now a priority for the authorities. Although the water distribution system needs major reparations in some places, it’s mainly the lack of electricity that has stopped the water pumps in other places. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), whose international mandate is to assist populations caught in armed conflicts, is working closely with the water authorities in Southern Lebanon, sponsoring reparation teams and shipping in the necessary pipes, fittings and equipment to get the water running again as fast as possible.
