Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has launched a fundraising campaign to help alleviate the sufferings of the people of Beirut, Lebanon, following the deadly blast.
The campaign titled “Heart for Lebanon” aims to raise a total of QR50 million that will be used to provide medical and food aid, emergency shelter, and other humanitarian support for 300,000 affected people.
A group from QRCS’ representation mission in Lebanon accompanied colleagues from the Lebanese Red Cross in a field visit to gather information and assess the needs of the affected people. The campaign was launched after QRCS got an approval from the Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA).
The relief plans are as follows:
 Immediate response: Food aid, makeshift shelters, and support of health facilities for the benefit of 55,000 people.
 Medium-term response: Monthly food provisions, cash aid, and restoration of damaged homes for the benefit of 25,000 people.
 Recovery and capacity-building: Enhancement of health services, development of medical skills, and awareness raising for the benefit of 300,000 people.
Everyone is invited to contribute to this humanitarian campaign by donating via QRCS’ website (www.qrcs.org.qa), donor service line (66666364), or home collector service (33998898).
