Qatar Red Crescent Society's (QRCS) mission in Lebanon has launched a new project that helps provide clean drinking water for the Syrian refugee camps in Arsal of the Beqaa Governorate.
The purpose of the three-month project is to address the problems facing both the refugee and host communities, by distributing potable water to 36,000 persons per day, or the total populations of 63 camps.
A water purification plant
Omar Katerji, head of QRCS mission in Lebanon, described the water projects as a top priority in QRCS's strategy for the coming years.
He noted that the Arsal water purification plant is a replication of another project in Saadnayel, a town of the Zahle district.
He also revealed that QRCS is planning to launch a similar third project in North Governorate.
