Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has proceeded with its water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) intervention for internally displace persons (IDPs) in Mosul, Iraq.
The organisation’s mission in Iraq is working actively to deliver potable water, maintain sanitary facilities, drain wastewater, collect garbage and carry out other municipal tasks at the Namroud camp, southeastern Mosul, QRCS has said in a statement.
With funding from the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs’ Iraq Humanitarian Pooled Fund, these efforts provide vital services for 835 households (more than 4,000 people) living in the camp, the statement notes.
Among the many activities undertaken by QRCS personnel are handing over water ration coupons to all inhabitants, assessing the amounts of water distributed, testing and verifying the usability of water, ensuring the coverage of all parts of the camp, performing the maintenance of water tanks, raising awareness about economised water use and hygiene standards, and assigning garbage disposal locations.
Working in the country since 2013, QRCS’s Iraq operation has conducted nearly 50 diverse projects in emergency relief, healthcare, water and sanitation.
They work closely with local authorities, Iraqi Red Crescent Society, international organisations and UN agencies.
