On the 22nd of March 2011 which coincides with the international day for water, members of the local communities in the gatherings of the South were invited to a meeting as a general mobilization for the campaign on water, and to identify individual and public responsibilities towards preservation, consumption and sterilization of water.

 

Attendees include 7 representatives of the popular committees (local governing of the gatherings), 4 representatives of the local women committees (trained on empowerment by PARD) and 4 of PARD’s community health workers (2 of them acted as trainers).

 

The subjects presented and discussed were:

  • Importance of water towards life in general & humans in particular
  • Relationship between water & health (water borne diseases)
  • Activities of PARD in the gatherings related to preservation of water: solid waste collection & suction of percolating pits (septic tanks)

 

The attendees were informed about the workshop which will benefit the local water caretakers and other volunteers concerning water preservation. They were also informed about the children activities related to water to be implemented during the school spring vacation.

 

Methodology used in the workshop included presentation, open dialogue, and distribution of brochures.

Mobilization for the water campaign included a meeting with the head representative of all the popular committees in the gatherings. The project (water preservation) was explained to him and he was asked, together with the other members of the popular committees to act as observers and monitors for water chlorination in the gatherings. They should help PARD in making sure that the local water caretakers add the proper quantities of chlorine regularly to the water sources in their gatherings.
