Antenna -Tinkisso takes action against Ebola epidemic
Us colleague Antenna work hard
on Ebola’s crisis :
CONAKRY, Guinea/GENEVA, Switzerland, 3rd September 2014
- As the death toll due to Ebola in West Africa rises to 1,500 and confirmed cases of infection reach
3,000, Antenna-Tinkisso leads an unprecedented
prevention campaign in Guinea to limit the spread
of the hemorrhagic virus.

The number of Ebola cases in West Africa, primarily in GuineaConakry, Liberia and Sierra Leone has not abated since the beginning of 2014. Faced with this crisis, the Antenna-Tinkisso association, which has been active since 2008 and focuses primarily on
preventing waterborne diseases such as cholera, has undertaken
prevention activities to put a brake on the advance of the Ebola
fever. read more

Humanitarian aid to Syria must target water authorities’ maintenance and disinfection needs, as both the regime and opposition
forces are failing to respond
to the country’s escalating food and
water crisis.
Vital and essential services are on the brink of collapse under the
burden of continuous assault on critical water infrastructure. The
stranglehold of extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham
(ISIS), neglect by the regime, and an eighth summer of drought
may combine to create a water and food crisis which would
escalate fatalities and migration rates in the country’s ongoing
three-year conflict.
The capability of state agencies to respond to water, food and
shelter crises is diminishing. The warning signs are clear for what
could result in a far worse refugee crisis than the conflict has
produced to date. The UN, neighbouring countries and the wider
international community have a responsibility to collaborate in
the next few months, in order to limit the extent
of human suffering.

Syria

The capability of state agencies to respond to water, food and
shelter crises is diminishing. The warning signs are clear for what
could result in a far worse refugee crisis than the conflict has
produced to date. The UN, neighbouring countries and the wider
international community have a responsibility to collaborate in
the next few months, in order to limit the extent
of human suffering.

Water as a weapon
The deliberate targeting of water supply networks and related
structures is now a daily occurrence in the conflict. The water
pumping station in Al-Khafsah, Aleppo stopped working on 10
May, cutting off water supply to half of the city. It is unclear who
was responsible; both the regime and opposition forces blame
each other, but unsurprisingly in a city home to almost three
million people the incident caused panic and chaos. Some people
even resorted to drinking from puddles in the streets.
Attacks and counter-attacks have destroyed several waste water
treatment and sewage facilities in the country. Damage to
the sewage system in Aleppo, for example, has resulted in the
contamination of drinking water. Warnings to citizens to boil all
tap water were issued in the city this month. But, with the rising
prices of black-market fuel, boiled water is itself a luxury that
most of the besieged population cannot afford. Disinfection of
the water supply system now needs a two-day fresh water flush,
during which time the water supply would be inaccessible making it a an unpalatable action, given the current water shortage.

ISIS-controlled
water resources

A state of denial

ISIS now has control of the Euphrates’ major water structures
within Syria. This includes Al-Raqqa Dam, one of the biggest
dams in the Middle East, which controls the river flow for most of
the irrigated lands downstream of Al-Raqqa and supplies 19 per
cent of the country’s electrical power.

In spite of these alarming indications, both Syria’s regime and
opposition groups are in a state of denial: neither is responding to, or preparing for, a food and water crisis. All efforts are
concentrated on fighting; management and maintenance of
water resources are left to a dwindling number of international
agencies and local professionals. Any sudden supply disruption
or contamination could lead to a huge outflow of people, which
would further overwhelm refugee services in neighbouring
countries.
It is essential that the UN establishes safe routes for humanitarian aid from countries surrounding Syria to ensure that vital
supplies reach the affected zones without interference from
either the regime or the opposition. This humanitarian aid should
include water authorities’ maintenance and disinfection needs
and should supply farmers in the affected areas with support for
next season’s crops to help stave off an impending tragedy.
