Idlib - SMART

The Qatar Charity organization launches a project to drill 27 groundwater wells in the camps of the Harem area, 33 kilometers north of Idlib, Northern Syria, near the Syrian-Turkish border. The project will serve around 50,000 people in the area.

Ali Shaqran, the media official at the organization, reported that the project includes drilling 27 water wells to serve the areas between Harem and Salqin to Khirbat al-Joz and al-Hambushiah in the Western Jisr al-Shugur countryside. Shaqran added that the project will serve 50,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Fawaz al-Abrash, an engineer working in the project, said that drilling each well costs 1,400 to 1,500 U.S dollars. He added that  the well's depth reaches 30 to 100 meters according to water availability.

The number of groundwater wells in Idlib has reached more than 17,000, including 8,000 of which are unauthorized. The unauthorized wells threaten the water security in Idlib and cause groundwater leakage. Last August, a local official reported that they could not stop these incidents but they seek to organize them.

Most of the IDPs in the Idlib governorate suffer from harsh living conditions and a lack of services. The IDPs appeal to humanitarian organizations and local councils to ease their suffering and provide basic services and medicine; however, they are yet to receive a response.
