Lebanese Villages Facing Lack of Water and Aid

According to an article in the Herald Sun, many Lebanese villages in the south still have not received aid, and are without electricity and water. Philippe Royan, a European official, noted that “It is surprising to find villages very damaged (by Israeli bombardments) that have not received visits from humanitarian organisations.” He is head of the European Commission’s office of humanitarian aid.

He also said that although a number of aid organizations were operating in Lebanon, they were not organized with one another. This is apparently allowing some villages to fall through the cracks.
