Three new water-supply systems have been built in some of Akkar's most neglected villages, though residents say that they need far more help to shoulder the burden of the Syrian refugee crisis.The head of the EU Delegation in Lebanon, Christina Lassen, visited each of the new water supply lines Tuesday. Meeting with the leaders and municipality officials of each village, she pledged that the EU would continue supporting these vulnerable communities going forward.The new water supply lines are aimed to vastly improving the lives of residents in these oft-neglected communities. The EU Delegation to Lebanon estimates that their efforts will have provided 1 million Lebanese nationals and 200,000 Syrian refugees with direct access to clean drinking water.
