Desalination Establishment Plant for Yafa Hospital
- Project Introduction
Yafa Medical Hospital, located in the city of Deir al-Balah in the central governorate, provides medical services at nominal fees to poor and needy families and serves a large segment of the population in the central governorate of Gaza. The hospital needs clean drinking water for patients, workers and the surrounding population.
Hence the idea of establishing a water desalination plant at Yafa Hospital, in addition to establishing an external water taps and sink for the benefit of passers-by and the surrounding population.
- Problem and justifications
Gaza Strip suffers from serious water pollution as a result of the rapid decline in groundwater reserves, and the pollution rate of this water has reached 98%, which has led to the spread of serious diseases, most notably kidney failure. Officials in hospitals and medical centers, especially in kidney departments, warned that there is an increase in the number of patients with kidney failure resulting from water pollution, and water contains a high percentage of nitrates and chlorides, which are considered one of the causes of kidney failure in the Gaza Strip.
Also, the high percentage of other heavy metals such as lead and sulfur affects people’s health and lives.
Gaza Strip is on the verge of a real water and environmental disaster, as more than 98% of groundwater is not suitable for domestic use. The percentage of salinity in the water is constantly rising, and the water is no longer suitable for human use, and there are no solutions under the siege imposed on the Strip. Deir Al Balah is one of the areas with a very high population and this that clearly affects this area.
This city has a population of more than 250,000 people. Yaffa Hospital is located in the middle of Deir al-Balah city and it is in dire need of providing clean drinking water for patients, workers and residents around the hospital
