Niamey, The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) has implemented a joint project with a civil-society organization to dig 290 wells in the cities of Dosso, Tillabéri, Zinder, Maradi, and Tahoua in the Republic of the Niger at a total cost of around $3 million, benefiting 393,390 individuals. Under the project, 31 deep artesian wells, 99 medium-depth artesian wells, and 160 shallow wells with a hand pump were drilled with all accessories, including tanks and solar energy systems. Training for the local community was given under the project, with the aim of providing safe drinking water in the targeted areas in Niger, helping to alleviate the suffering of families in bringing water from distant places, and contributing to enhancing stability and social security by providing water that meets everyone's needs. This comes as within the efforts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, through KSrelief, in securing drinking water and supporting water and environment projects in needy countries around the world.
