Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF) has dug four surface-water wells in the rural areas of Morocco.
More than 1,000 poor families benefited from the project. A delegation led by Dr Ayed bin Dabssan Al Qahtani, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, and General Director of RAF, inaugurated the project.
The project was financed by the Endowment Fund of Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah for charity works.
Cemented water tanks were built near the wells for the storage of water and to supply it to neighboring houses. More than 250 homes received water connection from a single well. The well will also provide water to small farms.
The villagers walked for long to bring water, said Dr Ibrhaim Talwi, Chairman of Al Salam Social Development Association, RAF’s partner in Morocco. The project provided drinking water to the residents and saved the time of children who often reached their schools late as they went to fetch water, said Talwi.
