DelAgua Case Study - GVC in Lebanon
GVC are a non-governmental, secular and independent organisation, founded in 1971. They are active all over the world carrying out development aid projects. The flow of refugees to Lebanon has increased the population by 25% and, as a consequence, the demand for water. GVC is helping to ensure a reliable and sustainable supply of water services to the Syrian refugees as well as the hosting communities. GVC's field officers have relentlessly worked to implement a water quality testing programme intended at monitoring around 400 ITS (Informal Tented Settlements) where more the 13,000 Syrian refugees are being hosted. These tests include bacteriological, physical and chemical analysis, both at source and at the point-of-use, and are being carried out using DelAgua Water Testing Equipment.
