July 20, Kathmandu: Qatar Charity has been helping farmers to irrigate their fields through its small-scale irrigation projects.
So far, Qatar Charity has supported more than 700 households via its irrigation projects in Banke, Kapilvastu, Rupandehi, Rautahat, Sarlahi and Sunsari districts in coordination with other local organizations.
In Banke, it has been helping farmers to irrigate their fields with the help of the Banke Unesco Club (BUC)
BUC’s monitoring team comprising Chief Patron Parwej Ali Siddiqui, Executive Director Ravi Kumar Tuladhar, Deputy Director Sajid Ali Siddiqui, and Treasurer Budesh Jaiswal jointly monitored the deep tub-well submersible pumps that are being installed in fields in Khajura Rural Municipality of Banke district.
The pumps are being installed in partnership with Qatar Charity Nepal for promoting small-scale irrigation facilities for the poor farmers in the area who are involved in commercial vegetable farming.
The work is in progress and four out of six submersibles are at the final stage of being fully installed.
“Qatar Charity is always committed to helping underprivileged communities to better their quality of life,” said Irshad Ali Sheikh, Acting Director of the Qatar Charity office in Nepal.
