QRCS distributes food aid to 500,000 beneficiaries in Syria
The representation mission of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) in Turkey has recently distributed supplementary food aid at the camps of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Idlib and Aleppo Governorates, northern Syria. To meet their needs during the holy month of Ramadan, QRCS’s field workers distributed a total of 220 tons of dates, donated as a gift from the State of Qatar to the Syrian brothers and sisters. The number of beneficiaries is around 110,000 families, or over 500,000 persons, of the IDPs and local communities across the two governorates. All the necessary safety measures were taken to ensure prevention of Coronavirus. The aid was distributed by visits to each tent separately, to protect the workers against infection risks. In coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO) and other humanitarian providers working in the country, Coronavirus control precautions are doing on effectively. Preparedness and response plans were developed, and preventive procedures are strictly followed at the health, psychological, and community-based facilities operated by QRCS. During the holy month of Ramadan, food baskets will be distributed to 36,425 poor and displaced persons. Other food baskets will be delivered to 8,100 Syrian refugees in Lebanon and 8,700 Syrian refugees in Jordan. These distributions will cost a total of QR 2,923,543, to be funded from the donations of charity payers in Qatar. Under the Zakat-ul-Fitr project, food baskets will be distributed to 8,700 and 24,296 Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, respectively. To contribute to the Ramadan Iftar project, under QRCS’s Ramadan Campaign 1441 A.H., you can find information about all the charitable projects on QRCS’s website (www.qrcs.org.qa).
