Doha, July 11 (QNA) - Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has proceeded with its water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) intervention for the internally displace people in Mosul, Iraq.
The organization's mission in Iraq is working actively to deliver potable water, maintain sanitary facilities, drain wastewater, collect garbage, and do other municipal works at the Namroud camp, southeastern Mosul.
With funding from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) through Iraq Humanitarian Pooled Fund (IHPF), these efforts provide vital services for 835 households (more than 4,000 people) living in the camp, QRCS said in a press release on Wednesday.
Among the many activities undertaken by QRCS personnel are handing over water ration coupons to all inhabitants, assess the amounts of water distributed, test and verify the usability of water, ensure the coverage of all parts of the camp, perform maintenance of water tanks, raise awareness about economized water use and hygiene standards, and assign garbage disposal locations.
Working in Iraq since 2013, QRCS's Iraq operation has conducted nearly 50 diverse projects in emergency relief, health care, water, and sanitation. They work closely with local authorities, the Iraqi Red Crescent Society, international organizations, and UN agencies. (QNA)
