This comes as part of QC’s ‘urgent response call to Arsal under its ‘Warmth and Peace’ drive. Qatar Charity, through this call, aims to provide relief aid to more than half a million affected Syrian refugees in Arsal and other areas, as they have recently suffered the harsh

The delegation will also pay a visit to QC projects implemented in Sidon, a city in Lebanon.
The relief aid includes dozens of consignments of foodstuffs, fuel, personal hygiene kits, winter essentials and necessary medicines. The aid will be provided to Syrian refugees in six camps, as well as to underprivileged Lebanese families in Arsal.
