Islamic Relief organized an environmental bus tour entitled “Blue Route” in cooperation with Palestinian Water Authority. More than 20 media activists on social media participated in this tour.
Tamer Al Zuhri, WASH coordinator at IRPAL, said that the main goal of the bus tour is to highlight the water crisis in Gaza Strip and get the media activists learn about them. Therefore, they will draw the attention of the local community members and raise their awareness on environmental risks to ensure their safety.
The bus tour included visiting Gaza Valley site which is considered a natural sanctuary and a contaminated and destroyed water passage. The tour also included visiting seawater desalination, wastewater treatment plants, and solid waste landfill. Explanations for the most significant problems related to these sites were presented
