Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has mobilised its foreign missions to monitor the situation with regard to the Covid-19 outbreak, co-ordinate with the host national societies and government authorities, provide all possible forms of logistic and specialised support, and take all the necessary health and preventive measures in relation to the ongoing humanitarian operations.
In Lebanon, QRCS’s field teams have stepped up infection preventive precautions in order to protect both volunteers and beneficiaries. Every day, all the facilities of water purification plants and water tankers are disinfected. To ensure their safety, relief workers use personal protective
equipment and sanitisers.
The personnel working at QRCS’s water purification plants in Arsal and Saadnayel continue to deliver clean drinking water to the Syrian refugee camps. It is part of Water for Mercy, a project implemented by QRCS in Lebanon for the benefit of 7,000 Syrian families, or 35,000 people approximately.
At the same time, teams from QRCS and the Lebanese Red Cross resumed the Warm Winter 2020 project. Currently, food parcels are being distributed to Syrian families and the host community in Akkar, northern Lebanon.
Over the coming few days, the distribution of food provisions would continue for the benefit of over 5,000 poor families, or 25,000 people. All the precautions have been taken to protect the field teams and abide by the applicable preventive rules.
The beneficiaries expressed happiness at receiving the much-needed aid of food provisions. They thanked QRCS and the Lebanese Red Cross for their nonstop support since the eruption of the Syrian conflict, particularly in the midst of the
recent coronavirus outbreak.
