Camp Life

This is a very good article on life in refugee camps in Palestine from New Matilda. This bit got me the most:

All of these homes, however, struggle when it comes to water. It’s only pumped into the camp once every five to seven days and only for a few hours. Families are therefore forced to ration the water and store as much of it as possible in rooftop tanks in order to make it last. During my stay, many families went without water for days. Those who could afford it bought bottled water and others went without or borrowed from neighbours.
