QRCS' QR12.25 million Warm Winter campaign to benefit 200,000 people around the world

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has launched its annual 'Warm Winter' relief campaign under the slogan 'giving warmth' which aims to provide winter aid to 200,000 beneficiaries in several countries at a total budget of QR12,250,000.
"The campaign aims to achieve, through donations of good people, not only to provide a means of heating, but to revive the hopes of entire families preparing themselves for a harsh winter, and the preservation of their dignity," QRCS Secretary-General Ali Hassan al Hammadi said at a press conference.
He pointed out that QRCS has been carrying out this campaign for the benefit of tens of thousands of families who have displaced as a result of natural disasters or armed conflicts."The refugees in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, and the Palestinians at the camps do not enjoy this season. So is the situation in Afghanistan, which is suffering from extreme poverty, and Kyrgyzstan, which is standing on the doors of a bitter winter. All of them are waiting for us more than for the winter," he pointed out.
Hammadi noted that QRCS will try, through the targeted amount, to cover the need of the weak and the poor in these countries, and provide warmth, clothing, food and treatment for them.
QRCS Director of Financial Resources and Investment Development Saad Shaheen al Kaabi said that the campaign is aimed at helping the needy in the face of winter and cold, and those affected by wars and natural disasters inside Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan, as well as Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and Palestinian refugees in Lebanese camps.
Kaabi called on all sectors of society in Qatar to support the warm winter campaign through donations. He pointed out that QRCS will organise a number of public events associated with the campaign to inform the public about its projects.
On the warm winter campaign projects 2017-2018, QRCS Director of Disaster Management and International Development Department Ayham al Sakhani explained that this year's campaign involves many projects that QRCS intends to implement in several countries for refugees and displaced people.
He reviewed campaign projects such as those for heating, accommodation and food baskets for displaced people and refugees in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq and the pharmaceutical quotas for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
