ECHO has provided DanChurchAid with EUR 1,220,000 to increase the Area C population’s access to water, resources, and services necessary for sustaining communities and preventing forced population transfer.
The population in Area C, in particular the Bedouins, continues to suffer from shrinking grazing land and lack of access to basic services due to settlements, the Wall, and other barriers.
The aims of this project are specifically to provide safe water, sanitation and hygiene to the vulnerable population living in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Furthermore, issues with forced population transfer are addressed through capacity-building and empowering the communities to enhance self-protection activities and advocate for their rights.
