UNICEF deplores vandalism of Libya’s water supply

United Nations, Aug 3 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on Sunday condemned vandalism of Libya's water supply systems and deplored vandalizing water systems which cut off children and their families from water, increasing the likelihood of water-borne diseases, UNICEF said in a statement.

¨When water access is cut off, children are often forced to rely on unsafe sources, which increases their risks of contracting diseases, especially in very young children,¨ said Cristina Brugiolo, UNICEF Deputy Special Representative in Libya.

UNICEF said that assailants’ repeated attacks on the Man-Made River’s main systems threatens the water security of the entire country and puts millions of lives at immediate risk of losing access to safe water.

The Man-Made River, the largest water supplier in Libya, provides 60 percent of all freshwater used in the country.
