Community Renovation

Shatila Camp and Bourj el Barajneh are known for their messy electrical wire installation, that over many years have been neglected and chaotically spread amongst dripping water pipes. Over 50 people die each year due to electrocution. Wires reach the ground in very narrow alleyways where children frequently pass by every day. This project is one of the smaller projects with a small amount of funding, but has made a huge impact within the Shatila and Burj el Barajneh communities. With this small project, we were able to fix and organize all the electrical cables and boxes in 8 streets in the 2 camps, that were causing many deaths during the winter months
