AL MUKALLA, 25th November 2016 (WAM) – The Emirates Red Crescent Authority (ERC) today commissioned a project for solar-powered water supply systems in Ar Raydah Wa Qusayar District of Hadramout in Yemen.

A representative of the ERC said the project, built in the village of Al Aiq, entailed the procurement and installation of solar-powered water pumps to transport water from an existing well to a water tank that supplies fresh water to the residents.

District Director Ahmed Saeed Al Jamhi, thanked the ERC for their efforts in setting up water and electricity projects, saying this solar-powered water project would have a positive impact by saving costs of purchasing diesel and other fuels.
