Under a license from the Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA), Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) reopened its representation office in Niger.

HE Minister of Water and Sanitation of Niger Adamou Mahaman hailed the QRCS’s projects in his country and the great support provided by non-governmental organizations in areas suffering from difficult humanitarian conditions.

Acting QRCS Secretary-General Faisal Mohamed Al Emadi described the reopening of QRCS’s office in Niger as a “positive step towards stronger bilateral and humanitarian relations between our two countries”, as well as a great opportunity to provide humanitarian and development services for the people of Niger, inspired by the humanitarian, Islamic, Arab, and Qatari traditions/ideals, as well as the seven Fundamental Principles governing QRCS’s work.

He thanked the government of Niger and all those involved in the reopening for their support to overcome all difficulties and complete all procedures as planned, with a view to strengthening the existing humanitarian ties and enabling exchange of experience and joint humanitarian action to alleviate the suffering of poor people in the country.

QRCS has 13 foreign representation missions/offices that work together with sister National Societies and international humanitarian organizations. The new office plans to launch 15 humanitarian projects this year, covering the shelter, water and sanitation, health care, livelihood, and food security sectors. (QNA)
