Doha: With funding from the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has implemented a renovation and maintenance project for water and sanitation facilities at 48 schools in Mosul, Iraq.

The overall number of beneficiaries is 59,258 students from the returnee families. Over 14 months, the project was executed by QRCS’s personnel, under a plan that covered the eastern, central, and western districts of Mosul.

In the eastern part of the city, they restored and maintained 28 lavatories at the schools damaged during the past military clashes. The total number of beneficiaries is 28,825 students. At the same time, 24 school lavatories were rehabilitated in the western part of Mosul, which enabled the schools to resume normal work. These facilities are available for the schools’ 30,433 students.

Mosul suffers shortages in infrastructure, and many schools have damaged buildings and lavatories. They are in need for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. To achieve the goals of the project, QRCS’s mission in Iraq redesigned the procedures of coordination with international organizations, local authorities, and camp administrators. This is one of a series of projects undertaken by QRCS in Mosul together with UN partners, particularly Unicef, with a special focus on health care, water, and sanitation.
