Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has implemented the Ramadan Iftar project in Palestine, distributing food baskets in many villages and towns of the West Bank and Jerusalem. QRCS said the Ramadan Iftar project was limited to food baskets, to meet the needs of the poorest families.
In Yemen, food baskets were distributed to 7,000 poor and displaced beneficiaries over four days. The relief officer at QRCS's mission in Sanaa said the 1,000 food baskets were given to vulnerable families headed by women, displaced and underserved families, shelter and juvenile homes, orphans, and persons with disability. All precautions were taken during the handover of baskets, QRCS explained. The beneficiaries were arranged with interval distances, and sanitizers were used to protect both the personnel and beneficiaries.
In cooperation with the Iraqi Red Crescent Society (IRCS), QRCS's representation mission in Iraq delivered 3,500 food baskets to 19,500 Syrian refugees and Iraqi returnees in Nineveh and Erbil Governorate, Iraqi Kurdistan.
