The Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has completed the rehabilitation and furnishing of a health centre in Bir Saliba, a town in Sirba locality, West Darfur State, Sudan, in order to continue serving the region’s population of 29,000.
At a total cost of $73,991 (around QR270,000), the health facility’s main premises, waiting area and outdoor shed were maintained, and it was also provided with a power generator, medications, medical equipment and office furniture, the QRCS said in a statement.
The supplies were delivered in a ceremony attended by the general director of the Sudan ministry of health’s state office and members of the Health Committee, which will hire the medical staff for future operations.
Established by the QRCS in 2013, the health centre seeks to help the local community and returnees after years of conflict.
The QRCS’s representative mission is going on with its humanitarian activities in West Darfur, with health, social and other services for the target communities, the statement notes.
The project was co-implemented by the QRCS, the Sudan ministry of health, the local community and the Sudanese Red Crescent Society.
They showed gratitude to the QRCS for its efforts to maintain stability, health services and development, the statement added.
Over the past four years, the QRCS has implemented QR36.5mn worth of operations across the country, including health, water, sewage, relief and education projects.
These achievements were made by the QRCS’s main office in Khartoum and sub-branches in East, Central and West Darfur.
A lot of partners were engaged in the implementation of these projects, mainly including, but not limited to, the Qatar Fund for Development, United Nations agencies, and NGOs working in Sudan.
