The Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (Raca), in co-operation with Qatar Charity and Qatar Red Crescent Society, launched a fundraising campaign aiming to support the brotherly Lebanese people following the tragic disaster that struck the port of Beirut.
This in line "with the position of Qatar towards the Lebanese people" the official QNA reported on Thursday.
The launch comes following the explosion that rocked the Lebanese capital, Beirut, on Tuesday, and left hundreds of people, killed, injured or missing, in addition to causing massive material damage. The Qatari government promptly responded to the call made by the Lebanese government on Wednesday evening, QNA added.
The campaign aims to collect what the Qatari community provides to the Lebanese people, and turn it into relief materials covering the areas of health, shelter, food, non-food items and reconstruction.
Raca also tweeted that it "is joining national efforts under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to support the Lebanese people in their plight through the 'Lebanon in Our Hearts' campaign. Stand with our sisters and brothers in Lebanon".
