 Qatar Charity (QC) has started implementing qualitative water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects to benefit 500,000 people in northwestern Syria.
These projects include maintaining eight non-functional water plants, as well as providing them with the operating cost and meeting five-month's fuel expenses.
It also includes rehabilitating two sanitation networks, providing personal hygiene kits, distributing water tanks to families, and carrying out awareness campaigns on the importance of hygiene, especially in light of the spread of Covid-19.

Maintaining five water plants for the benefit of villages south of Idlib, in addition to three plants in Aleppo countryside, also form part of the projects.
QC built a drinking water pumping station in the Faylun village located south of Idlib and equipped it with refineries. It provided an electricity generator for the station, rehabilitating water tanks, expanding drinking water networks, and installing solar panels to provide electricity to the station.
QC also implemented a similar project in Ma'ara where it carried out the maintenance of water pumps, built a room for generators and installed nearly 240 solar panels to provide the station with the needed electricity.
In the field of sanitation, work began on the construction of a drainage network in a locality of Albrdkulai area, which is densely populated and lacks infrastructure in general, especially sanitation networks. Health awareness campaigns were implemented to promote personal and home hygiene.
