Qatar Charity’s convoys commence aid distribution to displaced Syrians
The 78 trucks loaded with various winter relief aid include residential caravans, tents, mattresses, blankets, food baskets, and personal hygiene kits, in addition to providing flour for the production and distribution of 5 million bundles of bread.

‘Qatar Relief Convoys’, organised by Qatar Charity (QC), have embarked on the distribution of winter aid.
About 267,470 internally displaced Syrians are expected to benefit from the assistance worth nearly QR24mn, QC has said in a statement.
The first consignment of the drive set off from Gaziantep, a city in Turkey, heading to Idlib and the northern and western Aleppo countryside to deliver urgent shelter, food and winter assistance to the displaced to alleviate their suffering and meet their urgent needs.
The 78 trucks loaded with various winter relief aid include residential caravans, tents, mattresses, blankets, food baskets and personal hygiene kits, in addition to providing flour for the production and distribution of 5mn bundles of bread.
On this occasion, QC thanked the people in Qatar for extending continued support to the 'Warmth and Peace' campaign to help internally displaced Syrians, especially in these challenging times.











 
 
 
Qatar Charity also thanked the Turkish government for facilitating the work of QC's field teams and providing the necessary logistical support to deliver the aid to the displaced within Syria.
The drive, which includes 200 convoys, will set off from Turkey to meet the essential needs of internally displaced Syrians and Syrian refugees in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon from February 15 until March 10.
As the displaced and refugees are facing a tough situation, QC has urged benefactors in Qatar to support these convoys to maximise the number of beneficiaries, keeping them warm and meeting their basic needs in view of the adverse weather conditions.
Benefactors can donate QR100,000 to provide food, health and winter aid for 100 families, in addition to donating QR1,000 for the benefit of a refugee family and providing a caravan worth QR15,000 for a family.
Donations can be made through Qatar Charity’s collection points, branches, website and the app, in addition to dialing 44667711 or requesting for a ‘home collector’ across the country.
