Qatar Development Fund allocated QR10mn to provide relief to the affected people in Syrian city of Aleppo.
The relief, which aims to enhance the nutrition sector, non-food items, shelter and medical services, includes children’s milk, ambulances, medicines and medical supplies and crew, in addition to water, personal hygiene kits, tents and civil defence equipment.
The relief projects provided by the Fund are implemented in accordance with international standards of humanitarian aid, as these projects are approved by the United Nations Organisation for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs to be within the immediate humanitarian response plan.
This emergency relief comes in the light of Qatar’s pledge of $100mn, announced at the donor conference in the United Kingdom, to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the stricken city.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Thani Bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF) has implemented a project to provide bread and flour for more than 200,000 Syrian refugees in nine Syrian provinces.
The project, at a cost of about QR2.6mn, donated by Qatari philanthropists, was carried out in the areas of Daraa, South of Damascus, Aleppo, Hama, Latakia, West Ghouta, East Ghouta, Homs and Idlib, RAF said in a statement.
