Qatar Charity (QC) has set up four central kitchens in various parts of Syria to provide iftar meals to needy families and internally displaced people (IDPs) though Ramadan tables.
The kitchens have been preparing 2,600 complete iftar meals every day, which is expected to benefit 80,000 fasting persons during Ramadan.
QC's Ramadan field kitchens, which have been functioning from the beginning of the holy month in various areas of northern Syria such as Idlib and Aleppo in addition to Daraa, prepare fresh iftar meals, including rice, meat, chicken and yogurt.
Faisal al Fuhaida, executive director of QC's operations department, said the Ramadan projects in Syria will address the urgent need for assistance and food, especially in the holy month, as the areas are suffering from severe shortage of food items.
Fuhaida thanked philanthropists in Qatar for their continuous support for Syrians, especially in the holy month.
"Work is underway to distribute food baskets to hundreds of affected families and IDPs in a number of provinces and areas in Syria at a cost of QR3mn during Ramadan," he said.
He added that a 'Feed a Fasting' project was implemented in Turkey in coordination with official bodies and local partners, benefiting 40,000people.
