Qatar Charity implements 7 relief projects for Syrian refugees in Lebanon


1/23/2019 |


Qatar Charity (QC), with the generous support from benefactors in Qatar, has started the implementation of seven new emergency relief projects to provide the winter needs for more than 226,000 refugees in Lebanon in order to help them cope with cold and snowstorms.

These projects are being implemented by QC at an estimated cost of nearly QR8mn as part of its “Arsal Relief” campaign to ease the suffering of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

QC’s assistance includes the distribution of blankets and heating materials (diesel), winter clothes, food to thousands of needy families in the poorest and most needy camps, in addition to the rehabilitation of uninhabitable tents in the Arsal camps.

The assistance also includes providing urgent medical services to mothers, children and the elderly, sending a mobile clinic to remote and snow-covered areas, and ensuring the provision of children's medicines to the Arsal Medical Center.

QC’s medical aid also involves providing health care services for 700 refugees, providing medicines and treatment to 3,000 Syrian refugee patients, in addition to medical campaigns.

A project was also allocated to provide relief aid to the families of Syrian refugee orphans in Beqaa, Arsal, Akkar and Tripoli, benefiting 2,120 families at a total cost of QR1mn.

The aid includes basic food, heating fuel and treatment to help families and their children cope with the cold winter and frost.

During the distribution of assistance, emphasis will be placed on refugees in the camps, which are badly affected by the storm, and on the most vulnerable and needy families.

Some 80,000 Syrian refugees in Arsal are the hardest hit by the blizzard, which has increased their suffering, after their tents were covered by snow, in light of a severe shortage of basic life necessities, especially heating materials.

In light of the continued suffering of the Syrian refugees in the camps under the difficult economic and social conditions, QC has urged all philanthropists in Qatar to continue with their support for the “Arsal Relief” campaign, as the opportunity to contribute to it is still available.

Donations towards the campaign can be made through QC’s website (Qch.qa/sos) and application. Donors can also request for a ‘home collector’ service through QC’s app (Qch.qa/app) or dial the charity’s hotline, 44667711, to make their contributions.

Mobile donations can also be made. To donate QR100, QR200 and QR500, one can send an SMS with code (SYH) to 92642, 92015, and 92428, respectively.
