Qatar Charity (QC) has provided an irrigation unit and a water pipeline, in support of the agriculture sector of Sudan’s El Gezira State, to benefit nearly 5,000 people who receive fresh fruits at low prices during the season of production.
The project put an end to the suffering of many farmers, supported hundreds of them to produce once again, and provided the nearby markets and even the markets of the capital, Khartoum, with their vegetables and fruits.
Qatar Charity’s support helped the farmers produce better-quality mangos and grapefruits after restoring and sustainably irrigating their land. This empowered them economically, and enabled them to continue better production, both quantitatively and qualitatively, due to the use of modern irrigation techniques.
Many farmers expressed their gratitude and appreciation for Qatar Charity’s support with the modern irrigation unit, which has brought about a fundamental change in their economic conditions.
“Qatar Charity’s support is a strong boost for farmers who were unable to reclaim their lands,” Mohamed Babiker, president of an agricultural association, said, indicating that there are 73 families of farmers benefiting from the project.
Mr. Jalal Ali Ahmed, a farmer, said that the farmers grow vegetables and fodder, and benefit from Qatar Charity’s irrigation unit in watering fruit trees, indicating that they need refrigerators to store fruits and expand more animal production projects.
It is worth mentioning that since the beginning of its work in Sudan, Qatar Charity has implemented 940 projects in the fields of economic empowerment and food security, benefiting hundreds of thousands of people in the various states of Sudan.
