Qatar Charity’s delegation distribute aid to Syrian refugees in Lebanon

A delegation of Qatar Charity (QC) arrived in Lebanon to deliver urgent shelter, food, and health aid to the Syrian refugees in Arsal, a Lebanese town on the border with Syria. This comes as part of Qatar Charity’s ‘urgent response call to Arsal’ under its ‘Warmth and Peace’ drive.  Qatar Charity, through this call, aims to provide relief aid to more than half a million affected Syrian refugees in Arsal and other areas, as they have recently suffered the harsh snowstorms and heavy rains that made their already precarious situations even harder.  The delegation of Qatar Charity, headed by Mr. Ahmad Yousef Fakhroo, CEO's assistant for the Resources Development and Media sector at Qatar Charity, consists of many officials of Qatar Charity, several social activists, social media influencers, and media figures, in addition to several donors.Qatar Charity’s delegation, in cooperation with the Arsal Municipality, will distribute the new batch of aid to the affected, in addition to deploying a mobile clinic toprovide free treatment and medicine for people cut off from access to medical services. The delegation will also pay a visit to Qatar Charity’s projects implemented in Sidon, a city in Lebanon. The relief aid includes dozens of consignments of foodstuffs, fuel, personal hygiene kits, winter essentials, and the necessary medicines. The aid will be provided to Syrian refugees in six camps, as well as to underprivileged Lebanese families in Arsal. Qatar Charity, through its ‘urgent response call to Arsal,’ seeks to alleviate the suffering of those affected by the snowstorms that made their plight further worse. Qatar Charity has recently sent 10 consignments of aid for the Syrian refugees, which were distributed in six camps.As refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) are currently suffering from a harsher winter and heavy rain, frost and snow, Qatar Charity urges benefactors in Qatar to donate to the campaign to help the vulnerable.
