1/17/2016 |

As part of an ongoing effort to deliver aids to the besieged Syrian town of “Madaya", QC managed to distribute food rations to the starving residents of "Madaya" in cooperation with Al Rahma International Charity.

QC aid convoy will be followed by other relief convoys during the coming period. QC opened the doors even wider for donations and contributions to the Syrian town of "Madaya”, as part of the Syrian campaign "Syria, Harsh Winter".

Aids included prepared food such as wheat, lentils, chickpeas, beans, semolina, sugar, corn and rice, in addition to meals and fresh meat.

QC appeals to the Qatari philanthropists and residents to redouble their donations and support their fellow Syrians who are facing hunger and death in the besieged town of "Madaya".

Ready-to-eat meals can be donated to the residents of "Madaya" via SMS. Just individuals can send the word "Madaya," to the number 92642 to donate QR100, to the number 92428 to donate QR 500, to the number 92429 to donate QR 1000, or they can contact the hotline of Qatar Charity 44667711.

The reports of the international humanitarian organizations indicate that the majority of the deceased were elderly people and infants due to the acute shortage of foodstuff, particularly milk. Thousands of Madaya residents and the western countryside of Damascus' residents including "Zabadani" and “Baqin" are facing death, due to the deteriorating humanitarian conditions and the severe cold winter.  

It is worth mentioning that QC has launched its campaign "Syria  ...Harsh Winter ", beginning from Rihaniyya area along the Turkish border in order to provide warmth kits for the displaced in Syria, and refugees in southern Turkey. The first batch of the campaign included more than 250,000 pieces that were distributed on 508,000 people.

QC delegation distributed 2,000 food baskets to 10,000 Syrian refugees in Rihaniyya city near to the Syrian borders.

QC plays a central role to alleviate the suffering of refugees and displaced people in Lebanon. About 10,000 Syrian refugees at the Lebanese city of Arsal have benefited from the relief project carried out by Qatar Charity. The project included distributing food baskets for 3 months in favor of 1650 families living in camps such as Kuwait Al Khair, Yassar Idlib, Al Noor, Al Kalamoon housing, Al Bonian Al sabai, Al Zaeem, and Al Rahma .

QC has distributed 1,825 essential materials to 15 Syrian refugees’ camps in Lebanon within “Life’s Backbone” project at a cost of QR 1,825, 000. This project provided assistance for 8,400 Syrian refugees in Lebanon, as part of QC efforts to relief the Syrian refuges, and in light of "Vladimir" snowstorm, that hits Lebanon.
