Clean water is essential for life; yet it is one of the biggest challenges in displacement, especially in urban areas and unplanned settlements.
TAS focuses on both, the urgent need of supplying water through its Emergency Response WASH projects in which our interventions seek to address the urgent water and sanitation needs of communities. Additionally, TAS understands the importance of and ensures that sustainability of WASH activities is maintained through capacity-building and community resilience. Our Early Recovery WASH response aims to enhance long-term community goals that use development-based approaches to mobilize local markets, minimize environmental impacts and increase community ownership.
The Syrian crisis has not only been labeled by the United Nations as the largest humanitarian catastrophe in human history since World War II, but more so by the gross harm it has caused on more than 6 million children and over 4 million families.
This massive devastation has continued for 10 years; thus showing us the impotence of the international community. Further efforts through advocacy and solidarity by all humanitarian actors is needed to bring light to this tragedy and an end to the suffering.”
