Video: Precious Water - the story of a water truck driver in Gaza

Ziyaad Mohamed Hamed is a water truck driver in Gaza, who operates under extremely difficult and dangerous conditions to provide people with vital supplies of drinking water.

Since the start of the Israeli assault on Gaza on 7 July 2014, codenamed "Protective Edge", the water and wastewater infrastructure in Gaza has been heavily affected by Israeli airstrikes and shelling. As a result services have been cut or severely disrupted, affecting the entire population in Gaza.

Up to 25 per cent of Gaza’s population were displaced. The 1.8 million people in Gaza, living in homes and shelters have extremely restricted access to water and sanitation. All displaced people need support in water, sanitation and hygiene. Water tankering trucks provide people in different areas and shelters across Gaza Strip with water. more
