As part of its global efforts aimed at curbing the Covid-19 outbreak and extending support to the affected, Qatar Charity has equipped 400 caravans for quarantine services and medical checkups on the southeast borders of Jordan, at an estimated cost of QR4mn and with a capacity of 3,600 people, aimed at examining those arriving through the borders.
QC has distributed food baskets to 1,250 Syrian and Palestinian refugee and needy families affected by Covid-19 via coupons, allowing beneficiaries to purchase basic food supplies.
Besides, Qatar Charity has provided medical and food aid as well as other assistance to many countries, including Yemen, Lebanon, Tunisia, Palestine, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Chad and Kenya.
QC has also signed several co-operation agreements with UN agencies such as Unicef, UNHCR and Ocha, to maximise the number of beneficiaries hit by the pandemic.
