Millions of people around the world now have access to clean water and sanitation thanks to Qatar‘s enormous efforts in recent years.
Over 17 million people around the world benefited from Qatar Charity [QC]’s water and sanitation projects in the last five years, the organisation announced.
From 2016 until 2021, the charitable institution has implemented more than 56,000 projects in various countries around the globe, amounting to roughly half a billion riyals.
