Marwa is 14 and lives with her family in Bazouriye, in the South Lebanon Governorate. She arrived with her family from Damascus and now attends a local school, where she has become one of the #waterheroes: people who understand the importance of protecting water resources and reducing waste. The activities of Marwa and her classmates at school as part of days dedicated to “water heroes” are part of Water Access and Development (WAAD), an ambitious project that INTERSOS, ACTED and Action Against Hunger are implementing in both Lebanon and Jordan. Thanks to WAAD and EU funding, in Akkar, Bekaa, the North Lebanon and South Lebanon governorates, Mount Lebanon and Nabatieh, about 200,000 people will benefit from new water infrastructure and more secure access to drinking water.
