Millions of people, particularly children, in crisis-stricken Lebanon are facing severe health risks as the country’s water supply systems remain on the brink, UNICEF warned in a damning new report released Thursday. In the report ‘Struggling to keep the taps on,’ UNICEF says while Lebanon has managed to stave off a total collapse of its water infrastructure, the prospects for a solution will remain bleak while the power crisis continues, as electricity shortages make it impossible to pump sufficient water, and in some cases cause pumping operations to shut down completely.
