Upon the directives of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, medical aid was sent Thursday to support victims of the Vamco Typhoon that hit the Republic of the Philippines.
Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) in cooperation with the Amiri Air Force transported the aid through an air bridge to reach the victims.
The aid includes 40 tons of food and non-food products, in addition to camping equipment such as tents, water, sanitation, electricity generators, and rescue boats.
Commenting on the occasion, Director-General of QFFD Khalifa bin Jassem Al Kuwari said that the aid was sent based on the directives of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, noting that the aid was part of Qatar's continued efforts in aiding friends in the Republic of the Philippines.
Al Kuwari stressed that the State of Qatar moved with urgency to the aid of the victims in the Philippines. He added that the quick engagement of the wise leadership with the disaster reflected the commitment of the State of Qatar to alleviating suffering and enhancing international efforts in the field of emergency aid.
The aid program will be carried out with strategic partners Qatar Charity and Qatar Red Crescent. Qatar Red Crescent, in coordination with the Philippines Red Cross, will ensure the quick delivery of aid needed by the victims of the typhoon. Qatar Charity will focus on food security by providing food baskets.
