A month has passed since the war in Georgia ended but these people are still afraid to go home.


They live in a camp for displaced people in the town of Gori, where international aid supports 2 and a half thousand residents.


In camps as crowded as this hygiene, sanitation and clean water are critical to preventing disease outbreaks.


But what happens when the water isn't safe? So far there have been no widespread cases of diarrhea disease in
Gori. But recent water quality testing by Unicef and its partners have shown that residual chlorine levels are below
internationally accepted standards of safety. Furthermore, the town has only a few days worth of chlorine left to treat the water. (Upsound running water) Gori is on the brink of a water crisis.


SOUNDBITE: JAMES SHEPERD-BARRON, Unicef's Head of Water, Hygiene and Sanitation in Georgia
In: “At the moment the chlorine levels
Out: … and that’s what we are doing now.”


There are plans for the international community to construct a new water treatment plant in Gori in two years time.
Meanwhile, Unicef is providing a bridge solution to a problem that threatens to get worse.


Water is one of the most important commodities in camps for displaced people. For now at least the residents of the
Gori camp can be confident that theirs is safe.
