WHO–Kuwait partnership to help the people of Syria
15 May 2015 -- After four years of conflict in Syria, over 50% of the population does not have access to safe drinking water or proper sanitation. Inadequate access to safe water supplies in the country has resulted in outbreaks of waterborne diseases such as hepatitis A and typhoid, rendering millions vulnerable to life-threatening illnesses.
