Doha, June 03 (QNA) – Qatar Charity has built several water treatment plants and installed solar-powered pumps in Bangladesh and Pakistan within the framework of its efforts to provide safe drinking water.
These projects contribute to protecting the environment, reducing diseases and epidemics, and reducing the use of electricity.
In a statement on Saturday, Qatar Charity said it had inaugurated 4 water treatment plants in coastal areas in Bangladesh benefiting 8,000 people who suffer from the effects of natural disasters that afflicted their areas there due to the use of salty water, as the plants remove all pollutants from the water to help purify the water and make it safe and fit for human use.
In addition, Charity has installed 7 solar-powered water stations in Peshawar, benefiting more than 1,650 families, or about 16,000 people.
Local officials in the areas targeted by the projects noted the Qatar Charity’s commendable efforts in providing drinking water to the population to protect them from harmful effects of the salty water they drink, pointing out that such projects would contribute to reducing the use of public electricity and protecting the environment from the potential impact of climate change.
