Chad honors Qatar Charity as second leading global organization in addressing water challenges


Chad’s Ministry of Water and Sanitation honored Qatar Charity (QC) for its outstanding contribution to addressing the water resources problem in the capital, N'Djamena, and its surrounding areas. The ministry placed Qatar Charity in the second position in terms of its impactful developmental interventions in the water and sanitation sector in Chad, after UNICEF.

The recognition came on the occasion of Qatar Charity's inauguration of 50 deep wells in the capital, N'Djamena, and its outskirts, coinciding with the recent World Water Day. Mr. Basile Kana-Bi Marcelin, Minister of Water and Sanitation, attended the opening of one of them.

During the inauguration ceremony, the minister commended Qatar Charity for its impactful interventions in Chad, particularly in addressing the water resource challenges in the capital, N'Djamena. He honored Qatar Charity, considering it the second international organization, after UNICEF, in terms of the scale of its interventions in the water and sanitation sector in Chad.

During the same ceremony, the governor of the seventh district within the capital, N'Djamena, said, "This is not the first time Qatar Charity has contributed to solving the water issue in the area. They previously dug a well for a school in the region, and today they are opening another well.” He also thanked Qatar Charity for this assistance, extending gratitude to the Qatari people for their support. He also hoped for more support from them.

Mr. Abdulaziz Jassim Hejji, director of the International Programs and Development Department at Qatar Charity, stated, "At Qatar Charity, we dedicate this recognition to the generous donors in Qatar whose support has enabled Qatar Charity to achieve this advanced position in terms of the impact of its developmental interventions in Chad.

He encouraged benefactors to seize the opportunity of Ramadan and Qatar Charity's "Double Ajir" campaign to donate during the second ten days of the holy month towards water projects, social housing, and mosque projects implemented available at minimal cost. He expressed hope that these projects would have a clear impact on the lives of individuals and communities.

According to UNICEF, 6 million people in Chad lack access to clean drinking water, with only 2 million having limited access. Additionally, 22% of children under the age of five in Chad suffer from diarrheal diseases due to unsafe water. Qatar Charity's office in Chad, with the support of donors in Qatar, has successfully dug and equipped 200 water wells during the period  from 2020 to 2024. The estimated beneficiaries of these wells exceed one million people.

It is worth mentioning that the "Double Ajir" campaign, currently ongoing throughout the second ten days of Ramadan, aims to dig and equip a significant number of wells, as well as provide social housing and mosques at minimal cost. More than one million people are expected to benefit from this initiative across several Asian and African countries.

It’s worth mentioning that QC has been selected among 50 local and international health organizations competing to be a member of such significant international group. The UN group is regarded the central nucleus which leads the structuring of health, according to the strategies and policies of the bloc, and the members of this group decide the priorities of the overall interventions into the health sector in Yemen. National confidence Director of QC Office in Yemen, Nasr Qaed Alzaeem, said, “QC has been able, in a short period of time, to get the confidence of major figures in the humanitarian work field, especially health care.” There were various objective criteria that made QC eligible to be chosen for Core Group membership, among other 10 organizations in Yemen, such as: the magnitude of activities, capacities and capabilities; and the considerable efforts exerted to help Yemeni people regarding the health sector.
