The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has announced that it will be implementing a water network project in the Al Misbah and Al Asam districts of Al Soum in Yemen’s Hadramaut Governorate.

Under the terms of the agreement, which ERC signed on 16 August, 2017, the scope of the project will include the drilling, digging, and connection of individual wells to a primary water reservoir in the area.

It also covers the refurbishment of internal water networks and the construction of a water pump station.

During the signing of the agreement, Ahmed Al Neyadi, head of the ERC team in Hadramaut, pointed out that water shortage is the biggest problem faced by people in desert areas.

He went on to stress the need to immediately start implementing the project to provide safe and clean drinking water to the people in the governorate, UAE state news agency, WAM, reported.

Al Neyadi also noted that ERC has adopted an overall integrated plan to implement projects related to water, health, education, and infrastructure, adding that infrastructure projects are among ERC’s priorities.
