Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has launched a QR 10 million fundraising campaign under the title #DevotionToGaza, with the aim of implementing a series of early recovery projects for 57,896 people affected by the recent Israeli onslaught on Gaza.
Secretary-General of QRCS Ambassador Ali bin Hassan Al Hammadi stated, “The tragedy of Gaza persists, with recurrent wars and 15 years of blockade. Once again, Israeli occupation forces have just attacked Gaza, causing the Palestinians there even more pain and suffering. Incessant airstrikes destroyed people’s homes and rendered them and their wives and children feeling unsafe”.
“Listening to their imploring voices, Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) extends a humanitarian hand from the people of Qatar to relieve their wounds and support them amid such difficult conditions. A QR 10 million emergency humanitarian response is launched to secure food, health, water and sanitation, and shelter aid, with a view to removing the impact of war, fostering Gaza’s resilience, and enabling recovery from this ordeal,” he was quoted as saying by the Qatar News Agency.
According to the humanitarian intervention plan set by QRCS under license from the Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA), many life-saving projects will be implemented in the health sector, support and rehabilitation services, digging water wells and constructing water supply systems, restoring and rehabilitating damaged homes, and providing one-time cash assistance.
To execute these projects, QRCS said it will be working with Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS).
