ERC completes Hawarim Qaf Al Awamir water project in Yemen

The UAE's humanitarian arm Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has completed the Hawarim Qaf Al Awamir Water Project in Hadramaut Governorate of Yemen, and has begun implementation to provide water to 4,000 people in the region.

The project comprised the digging of an artesian well and the linking of a water supply network to local residents, according to state news agency, Wam.

The ERC has begun implementation of hundreds of projects aimed at supplying drinking water to regions in Yemen without the basic resource, in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).

Commenting on the project, ERC secretary-general, Dr. Mohammed Ateeq Al Falahi, said that the Hawarim Qaf Al Awamir Water Project was completed in record time, despite the challenges, noting that the project will provide local residents in remote villages, deserts, and mountains, access to clean drinking water.

Falahi added that Sheikh Hamdan is closely monitoring the progress of the ERC’s projects, while encouraging those involved to implement initiatives that will improve the development sectors in governorates suffering from water scarcity.
