The newly approved intervention, Phase II will provide primary health and WASH services to seven communities in Raqqa Governorate. Activity implementation will focus on setting up four fixed caravans health clinics in four new communities and provide clean potable water to targeted communities across Ar-Raqqa sub-district.  Moreover, within its second phase, the project will carry out solid waste management activities and implement hygiene campaigns. Phase II will support and maintain the already established three PHCs and ambulances in the three communities currently operational under Phase I.

 

Director General, Eng. Hani Khabbaz commented on Phase II of the project and said: “We are proud to launch Phase II of this project knowing it will secure vital health and wash services to a larger number of communities in Raqqa. Phase II builds on the great success of Phase I which has spread hope in the targeted communities.”  

 

At a total worth EUR 3,7 million and a expected duration of 6 months, Phase II is expected to benefit 11,334 households in seven communities and in its entirety will benefit 68,000 persons; increasing health and WASH services to the civilians recovering from the destruction caused during the conflict with Daesh.
