Qatar Charity Mauritania's annual health convoys have served different areas in the country's remote interior by providing medical check-ups and tests in addition to free medicine for more than 10,000 people at-risk rural dwellers. At a budget exceeding QAR 1.0 million (USD 275,000) and traveling more than 1400 kilometers each direction over very challenging roads, many of those treated in the regions of Hodh Ech Chargui and Hodh El Gharbi suffered from diseases directly related to malnutrition and the lack of potable drinking water.
Qatar Charity Mauritania continues its efforts to provide safe drinking water through drilling and equipping wells, whether land-surface or artesian wells depending on the need of people and the nature of the land. As and when possible, wells are equipped with solar-powered pumps.
Qatar Charity established its office in Mauritania in 2007 as it previously implemented activities solely through national partners. Its ambitious relief program is working to enhance the readiness and preparedness of the office and partners in emergency response for the benefit of millions of refugees and displaced populations in eastern Mauritania, via the provision of food and medical aid, clothes and blankets.
Throughout several states in Mauritania, Qatar Charity is currently drilling four wells at a total cost of QAR 1 million (USD 275,000) in order to provide drinking water for around 20,000 people who have difficulty obtaining water in remote parts of the country. A safe drinking water delivery program for 2000 people in the municipality of Al-Aria, state of Atararzh has also been established to reach the inhabitants who suffer from a continued lack of safe drinking water.
