The work was undertaken to help Sudan recover from deadly outbreaks of cholera, diarrhea and other communicable diseases. The improvements will benefit approximately 85,000 people.
After completing the project, QRCS hosted an inauguration ceremony at the Al-Amal Camp, attended by Nawal Kamel, QRCS's Eastern and Central Africa coordinator, along with representatives from health, water resources and social welfare ministries, and chieftains, camp authorities and members of international organizations.
The project was a joint effort by QRCS and Adeso, an African charity and development agency, with funding from the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD). The project’s overall goal is to help prevent pandemics on the African continent, especially in South Sudan, where displaced populations deal with poor conditions caused by political unrest. It was QRCS’s first effort in the region.
