Qatar Red Crescent Society’s (QRCS) representation mission in Turkey recently initiated a project to provide clean drinking water for internally displaced people (IDPs) in the northern countryside of Aleppo, Syria.
Lasting until February 2022, the project will benefit a total of 13,898 beneficiaries in Al-Bab City and neighbouring camps, including 5,454 children and 7,194 women, as well as 95 indirect beneficiaries.
The project aims to meet the basic needs of purified and potable water for the displaced families in Al-Bab City and countryside outskirts, thus ensuring better and more stable living standards.
QRCS’ tankers are deployed to deliver drinking water, which was already tested to verify its quality and decontaminated with chlorine, as per the internationally accepted standards.







The municipalities, who select the most vulnerable groups, also co-ordinate with the other humanitarian organisations operating in the region to ensure non-duplication and provision of integrated services for the IDPs.
As a result of the protracted Syrian conflict, many people continue to be displaced and more camps are being built, while many families are in dire need of food and water, among other basic necessities.
Families in the camps can hardly get clean and potable water for drinking and personal use due to their proximity to water resources.
QRCS noted that its project helps affected populations to find safe and disinfected water in a manner that preserves the dignity of women, children, and persons with disability, who are now protected against diseases and epidemics, especially amid the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
According to QRCS, the project has a significant impact on reducing the suffering of IDPs and host communities in the target area, giving affected families improved access to regular water supply.
