Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has completed the construction of eight water plants in various localities of North Kordofan State, Sudan, fully funded by it, as part of the North Kordofan Water project, which was implemented in cooperation with its Sudanese counterpart, and in coordination with the North Kordofan Water Authority.

According to the three-month project plan, QRCSs representation office in Sudan took initial handover of the eight water plants, which are estimated to serve populations of up to 40,000 locals in the targeted areas.

This way, both people and livestock will find safe and potable water, which will make a positive difference in their economic and health conditions and help reduce mortality and morbidity rates dur to water-borne diseases.

The local community leaders and the beneficiaries expressed their happiness with this project, which would relieve their women and children from the burden of looking for and carrying water from remote areas, indicating that the project will leave a positive impact on their lives.

North Kordofan has very limited access to groundwater, and the locals find much difficulty securing clean water for drinking, personal use, and the watering of livestock on which they depend for their livelihood.
