Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) signed a co-operation agreement with the Red Crescent Society (SRCS), under which eight water plants would be constructed in the state of North Kordofan to provide drinking water for 20,000 population.
The signing ceremony was attended by Governor of North Kordofan Khaled Mostafa Adam who held a meeting with the two parties at the Secretariat of State headquarters to discuss the ongoing efforts to reduce the impact of flash floods, as well as the joint operations of QRCS and SRCS
QRCS Secretary-General Ambassador Ali bin Hassan al-Hammadi said, "We are happy to be here with our brothers and sisters, to sign this important agreement to construct water supply plants in several parts of North Kordofan."
He added, "It coincides with devastating floods in most of the states of Sudan. In response, QRCS and other Qatari humanitarian organizations launched the Peace for Sudan relief campaign, under the supervision of the Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA). In cooperation with SRCS, we are supplying health facilities with medical equipment and consumables to help them to protect their staff engaged in the Coronavirus control."
Secretary-General of SRCS Dr Afaf Ahmed Yahya commended the active partnership with QRCS in many relief and development operations. She thanked Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) for supporting the flooding disaster response, sending thanks to the people of Qatar and QRCS for their immediate action to stand by their brothers and sisters in Sudan.
"This campaign represents the magnanimity, glory, and generosity of the people of Qatar in helping those in need," said Dr Yahya. "You are there for us, and we are there for you. Your organizations were the best support for us in these hard times."
The QRCS delegation visited the university hospital of Al Obeid to deliver medical supplies, which would help the hospital to control the coronavirus outbreak. The delegation also visited the SRCS office in North Kordofan, where they met the volunteers and learnt about their current humanitarian activities.
