A delegation from Qatar Charity is heading to Turkey, with the aim of providing urgent shelter, food, and other aid to Syrian refugees and displaced persons to alleviate their suffering and meet their basic needs.
This comes in response to the worsening humanitarian situation of vulnerable Syrians following the largest displacement in Syria during the last three months, and in preparation for launching a national campaign for them.
The delegation will distribute the first batch of urgent aid directly to the displaced in the country, and refugees in Turkish areas bordering Syria.
The aid will include 200 tonnes of relief materials worth QR14.5mn to benefit 864,618 people. Another delegation is scheduled to depart next week to provide a second batcah of aid to Syrian refugees and displaced persons.
The national campaign, which will be launched soon in co-operation with many Qatari organisations and institutions, aims to help 250,000 Syrian refugees and displaced persons in the fields of shelter, food, water, sanitation, education and health.
According to United Nations, more than 900,000 people, 80% of them women and children, have been displaced since December,.
