Qatar Charity has carried out a number of new recovery projects in Mali as part of its larger program aimed at disaster preparedness, recovery and development.
As part of its ongoing efforts to provide potable water for the largest number of people, Qatar Charity dug an artesian well the village of Muribabogo, in the province of Koulikoro; a region experiencing a severe shortage of drinking water. The well will benefit thousands of citizens in the village and its neighboring areas.
Qatar Charity also provided sheep for the benefit of rural families in the same province, in the villages of Tlomadio, Sala, Murbabogo and Tianfla. This project seeks to contribute to improving the circumstances of the beneficiary households, which suffered from drought, displacement, unemployment and the lack of continuous income. Additional recovery projects included the distribution of sewing machines to poor families in the Koulikoro region of Mali, in six villages which were selected in light of the large need for such projects in light of the high incidence of poverty. The projects focus on households headed by widows, divorcees, or those that include orphans.
Qatar Charity's building of the Hamad Adel Ali bin Ali Al Muslimani School in Sokaina village in Nagba Cor Dora, a suburb of the Malian capital of Bamako included more than just classrooms. The school includes 18 classrooms and an administration room, 17 bathrooms and two water boreholes. A number of Mali government ministers and officials attended the opening of the school, including the Minister for Women and Children, the Minister of Education and the Minister of Sports.
