Despite the horrific challenges of living in Gaza—where 96% of the water is unfit for human consumption—residents have employed a variety of methods to survive. Here is but one of the examples in this inspiring article:
“Last year, Gaza photographer Fayez al-Hindi created his own water distillation and purification system using solar energy. Tap water is poured into a three-metre-long basin, and as it evaporates onto the panels, it purifies and the clean water drops into a separate basin.
On an average sunny day in winter, his invention produces four to six litres of clean drinking water for his family.”
