Al-Hasakah - SMART

Kidney diseases spread in villages in al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, as residents drink water from shallow calcareous wells due to the lack of running water. The residents demand the Kurdish Autonomous Administration to solve the problem.

Suleiman Yousef Ibrahim, the head of the neighborhood council in the village of Eastern Mabruka reported that the village and a surrounding village suffer from the spread of diseases after drinking calcareous water. Ibrahim added that the council called upon specialized organizations to find a suitable solution; however, Ibrahim noted that they had not received a response yet.

Ibrahim noted that there is a well filled with potable water, but they need a pump to retrieve it. Ibrahim added that the well could provide enough water for four villages with a population of 1,000 people each.

Mahmoud Yousef Diyab, a resident of the village of Eastern Mabruka, noted that the residents depend on water from calcareous and shallow wells, which infected one of his children with a kidney disease. Diyab complained about the lack of alternative solutions and the lack of response to the problem.

Abdulrahman, another resident of the village, said that that the village lacks sewage networks, and all the wells in it are shallow. Abdulrahman added that their village and five other villages depend on one well, but they need power to operate the pump to extract the water.

Two hundred and fifty villages in Southern al-Hasakah suffer from a severe water crisis as concerned parties seek solutions.
