Eissa Al Sayer was quoted as saying in an Aljournal News report that world donors should focus donations on service projects rather than the infrastructure, according to Tradearabia news report.

Al Sayer stated that the sanitation sector needed $50 million, the water services $10 million and the municipality $15 million just to begin clearance and reconstruction.
