UNICEF Supports Safe Water, Peace In Eastern Ukraine


[Water] deliveries are a familiar ritual for the around 450 residents of Pavlopil. Almost seven years of fighting had already disrupted water supplies in the area. Now, the combination of a dry summer and the COVID-19 pandemic – which requires more regular handwashing – has further aggravated already-dire shortages. UNICEF has been sending water supplies to Pavlopil since June 2019 as part of a joint project with ADRA Ukraine to supply those living along the line of contact. The project, which also includes plans to install pumps and water filtration equipment, provides Pavlopil with around 12 cubic metres of water a month.
