KUWAIT TO HELP ADDRESS WATER CRISIS IN ADEN

Officials from Kuwait and Aden, signed an agreement, to transport water from Abyan to Aden, to permanently address the water supply problem in the Yemeni port city.

The agreement, signed by ‘Kuwait By Your Side’ Campaign and Public Authority for Water and Local Rule in Aden, aimed at fixing the water pipeline, which transports water from Al-Ro’a well, in Abyan governorate, to Aden, via the province of Lahj.

The campaign said, the 58-kilometre pipeline will transport 13,000-15,000 cubic metres of water, every day.

The campaign “is designed to improve infrastructure and services through many projects, including the water project, which links Abyan with Aden,” Ghassan Al-Zamki, representative from Aden Governorate, said.

He said, the project, part of many Kuwait-funded ventures nationwide, would end water crisis, which was caused by the hostilities, that destroyed pipelines and water wells.
