Fewer mortar shells are falling on Aleppo, Syria, but the city’s residents now face a different kind of threat: water shortage. 

Supplies of potable water have been completely cut off, threatening humanitarian disaster. SOS Children’s Villages – Syria has responded by reviving old wells to bring safe water to residents. 

According to a source at the Aleppo Water Department, more than two million people have been affected by the water shortage after three out of four of the city’s pumping stations were shut down. 

“Children and families in Aleppo are in desperate need of clean drinking water. These are communities who have lived under a constant threat of violence and conflict, and are now being deprived of one of life’s basic necessities,” said Lynn Croneberger, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages – USA.
