Recycled Water Gardens - 07/22/10
With the installation of inexpensive plastic sheeting and PVC pipes, women in refugee camps have turned their family bathing areas into reservoirs for grey-water collection. They use the collected water to irrigate small vegetable patches, relying on their own skills to supplement their families’ meager food rations with essential nutrients. The vegetable patches provide a further source of income, as vegetables and seeds are sold at market. JWW has completed installation of the grey water reclamation systems for the benefit of all families in the Iridmi refugee camp in Chad, and is nearing completion in the Touloum camp as well.
