In an alarming statement, UNICEF announced that Lebanon’s population could soon lose access to essential access to clean water.
In its statement, UNICEF warned that 4 million people, mostly constituted of children and women, could be cut off from safe water supply in the next coming days if immediate action is not taken.
The organization also said that a number of crucial hospitals and health centers have already lost that access and are now resorting to contaminated water, which poses a risk to people’s life. This has mainly been due to electricity shortages.
