Summary of Role
You must be located in Gaza for this role.
In February 2018, with funds raised during the annual Ramadhan appeals, MAUK supported the implementation of an emergency healthcare project, for 9 months in Palestine. Aimed at improving drinking water supply in Schools and Kindergartens to vulnerable communities in the Gaza Strip.
The RO water desalination project (2018-26) involved ensuring children had increased access to safe drinking water, through installation of 51 reverse osmosis water desalination units generated by solar-powered cells, as well as training on maintenance and community awareness campaigns.
The second RO water desalination project (2019-131) involved the same above activities in schools and kindergartens, with the addition of healthcare facilities. In this phase, 70 water desalination units were installed across facilities and 40 existing units received maintenance; 200 hygiene awareness sessions were provided to the community, as well as distribution of 10,000 water flasks.
Although project implementation is monitored through regular project progress reports submitted to donors, a more comprehensive and objective evaluation by an external consultant is deemed essential to validate results reported, and to capture learning and recommendations to directly inform MAUKs future healthcare and WASH strategy in Palestine.
