DOHA: Qatar Charity has implemented various water projects at many places in Sudan to provide clean potable water to poor and needy people. The projects include establishing water plants, drilling artesian and surface water wells, and providing a drilling unit to dig deep wells. Hundreds of thousands of people benefited from water projects.

Director of the QC’s Office in Sudan, Hussein Kermas, said, “By providing safe drinking water, Qatar Charity aims to improve the public health of poor communities and to control diseases, which spread through the use of contaminated water”.

Providing safe drinking water is one of the most significant areas of the QC’s work in order to help poor and needy people with safe potable water free of contaminants and diseases that harm both human and animal health, Kermas added. 

In cooperation and partnership with Munazzamat Al Da’wa Al Islamiyya and the Qatar Red Crescent, Qatar Charity set up four water purification plants in many villages scattered along the Nile River, at cost of QR7.5m, to cover the needs of more than 87,000 people for clean drinking water. 

These water purification plants have production capacity ranging from 500 to 2,800 cubic meters per day as well as they are equipped with tanks, service and administrative facilities, and laboratories for water analysis.

A water plant project is currently being implemented in Wad Hamid, in the Nile River State at a cost of QR2m, which will have production capacity of 1,800 cubic meter per day, and will benefit 25,000 people approximately. 

There is also a plan to set up 20 water plants with different capacities in six other states, at an estimated cost of about $12m.

As part of its partnership with the Qatar Fund For Development (QFFD), Qatar Charity has also started the implementation of other water projects in South and Central Darfur at a cost of about QR11m under the framework of Qatar’s Darfur Development Initiative and they are expected to be completed by the end of April 2018 and will provide clean water sources to a number of localities in the region.

The projects include drilling 255 wells equipped with hand pumps, setting up three large water plants with overhead water tanks having a capacity of 50 cubic meters and equipped with an energy source (generator / solar energy), and establishing 11 medium water plants with 30 m3 overhead water tanks equipped with energy sources in addition to the distribution of maintenance kits for hand pumps, and the formation of wells and water plants management committees.
