QRCS Builds Shelter Homes for Displaced Families in Yemen

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) is building 224 housing units in two towns of Abs District, Hajjah Governorate, to shelter 1,680 displaced persons affected by war and flooding in Yemen.

At a total cost of USD 210,024 totally funded by QRCS, the new homes are 53 meters in size and are built of mud blocks and straw roofs taken from the local environment.

 

This emergency response is part of Qatars continued commitment to relieving Yemenis and alleviating the impact of the prolonged humanitarian crisis.

The project's manager Eng. Afraa Al-Aghbari, stated, "Abs District is a desert sandy area in northwestern Hajjah, where the displaced people suffer poor living conditions and have difficulty finding adequate housing. Their suffering becomes even worse at times of too hot weather, dust, and rain, which damage their mud-and-straw homes and make them, particularly children, prone to disease". (QNA)
