Qatar Red Crescent (QRCS), under a joint charitable campaign with Katara – the Cultural Village Foundation, has delivered food and non-food aid to the victims of drought in northern Somalia.
QRCS's mission in Mogadishu distributed more than 200 tonnes of aid collected as in-kind donations. Dates, beds, mattresses, blankets and clothes were received by more than 16,000 needy families in the city and towns of Berbera, Somaliland, according to a press statement.
The northern parts of the country are currently experiencing a severe drought, which has forced thousands of families out of their hometowns.
The local authorities in the target areas thanked QRCS for its efforts to relieve the affected populations, the statement noted.
QRCS has several development projects in the region, including support of two medical clinics of the Somali Red Crescent Society. Other activities of QRCS in Somalia cover healthcare, food security and capacity building.
Under Katara's charitable campaign, 12 containers of food and relief items were collected, valued at QR2,319,000.
