The Syrian Arab Red Crescent and the International Committee of the Red Cross signed an agreement, “Joint Water & Sanitation Program” 2015, on May 18.2015 in Damascus.
Dr. Abdulrahman Attar, President of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), noted that SARC hopes this agreement will be effectively and efficiently implemented according to the projects and plans. He also assured that he himself will supervise the project as well as the implementation to make sure that everything is done as planned.
In the same context, Dr. Attar took a chance to thank all ICRC and SARC staff members who exerted best efforts to make this agreement achieved in order to go forward on the humanitarian mission.
This agreement will support all Syrian governorates with the water and sanitation services that contain technical and mechanical logistics, water tanks… etc.
It is worth mentioning that SARC’s water project has supported more than 80% of the Syrian population all over the country in 2014.
