11 Aug Rainfresh sends 20,000 gravity water filters to Syrian refugees in Lebanon
More than 12 million people have fled from Syria’s violence, and over 1 million of those refugees have found temporary shelter in Lebanon. Most of them struggle to cover their basic needs: food, shelter and safe water.
Living in small, overpopulated shacks and chicken coops, Syrian refugees are often exposed to dangerous diseases in the water they drink. Facing insufficient medical resources, many refugees fall seriously ill with cholera and polio due to a lack of access to fresh, clean water.
Through GlobalMedic, Rainfresh is proud to have sent 20,000 gravity water filters to Lebanon this year to help thousands of Syrian families stay hydrated and healthy.
