There is a growing water crisis in Palestine that affects agriculture, industry, and the health of virtually every adult and child.

The sole source of fresh water for the Gaza Strip is the Coastal Aquifer, a water source shared with Israel. This aquifer has been contaminated for years and it is deteriorating even further. Poor sanitation and over-extraction have polluted this limited water supply.

Today we take a look at the water crisis in the region with Ziad Abbas, a Palestinian refugee from Dheisheh Refugee camp in the West Bank and current associate director of Middle East Children's Alliance.
