The UAE’s humanitarian arm Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) is preparing to launch two key water projects – the Thubab Water Project and the Al Wazeeyah Water Project in Yemen.

According to state news agency, Wam, the Thubab Water Project will involve the installation of 48 solar panels, a 100,000-litre concrete tank, as well as the maintenance of a 30km water network, which will benefit 6,000 people.

The Al Wazeeyah Water Project will involve the restoration of two artesian wells and the installation of an integrated solar power system containing 88 panels, as well as the maintenance a 60km distribution network, which will benefit more than 21,000 people in Taiz Governorate.

The ERC, which began implementing water projects since the liberation of the Red Sea Coast, has maintained the supply of clean drinking water in Yemen's Red Sea Coast, through implementing 31 projects benefitting 155,678 people.

The ERC restored the Qataba Area Water Project by digging a well and installing a solar-powered water pumping system. It also launched the Mocha Project in Taiz Governorate, which helped to ensure that the area's water capacity is sufficient for its residents’ needs. The project included the digging of two wells supported by two power generators and two water pumps.

These ERC projects are benefitting nine villages in Mocha District, six villages in Bab Al Mandab District and three villages in At Tuhayta District.
