Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) announced it has dug 10 water wells in in the city of Bosaso, Somalia and its neighboring villages in cooperation with Somalia social welfare and emergency relief authority.

KRCS President Barjas Hamoud Al-Barjas said in a statement on Monday that the water wells project in Somalia will have a positive impact for the Somalian people as it provides potable water where water scarcity is a major problem for many countries that are suffering from drought.

Al-Barjas added that this project comes within the framework of the humanitarian aid provided by the KRCS to people of Somalia as directed by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah the Honorary President of the society.

The implementation of this project came after a field study and response to the humanity calls to participate in saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of children, women and elderly persons in Somalia who die as a result of thirst and famine due to drought in the past four years in some areas there.

He pointed out that the goal of KRCS is to provide a clean source of water in Somalia, especially in Bosaso city and its neighboring villages that suffer from water shortage, desertification and drought.
