posted on 07/03/2006: 662 views



The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has expressed its gratitude to Zayed Foundation for Charity and Humanitarian Works(ZFCHW) for its support to refugees on the Sudanese-Chadian borders.



ZFCHC has drilled ten water wells and established a water purification unit to serve thousands of Sudanese refugees who fled their homes in Darfur region taking refuge in camps along Sudan's borders with Chad. External Relations Officer of UNHCR Riyadh Office, Mamoun Mohsen, conveyed the Commission's appreciation to (ZFCHW) Director General Salem Al Dhaheri.



"This is a vital project providing thousands of refugees with clean water on daily basis", said Mohsen of the AED735 project. "It was a blessing to both the refugees and UNHCR", he added. "The health condition of refugees has improved remarkably as they no longer have to use contaminated water.



"It also enabled UNHCR to make a significant saving in the costs of water dispatch to refugee camps." Mohsen asked Al Dhaheri to convey UNHCR's gratitude to ZFCHW Board Chairman, Sheikh Ahmed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Under Secretary of the Ministry of Finance and Industry.



Al Dhaheri also announced ZFCHW's intention to cooperate with UNHCR on another project to support refugees in Karapakh region of Azerbaijan. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
