November 7, 2018

DOHA: Qatar Charity (QC) has recently distributed 3,700 food baskets at a cost of over QR800,000 to the displaced people of Al Hudaydah Governorate in the capital Sana’a, Yemen.

Over 26,000 people suffering from acute food insecurity, according to the classification of UN agencies operating in Yemen benefited from the project, said a release. The Charity is preparing to provide food and shelter assistance for other 2,000 families this month, in conjunction with the approaching winter.

The distribution of the food aid came with the generous support of the people of Qatar to coincide with UN warnings of a devastating famine that Yemen could face soon. Food baskets include flour, rice, sugar, cooking oil, powdered milk, dates, salt, cans of bean and other materials, and will cover the needs of beneficiary families for basic food items for one month.

QC’s office is keen to implement all its projects through complete coordination with United Nations organizations and concerned Yemeni governmental agencies. These baskets were distributed very smoothly without any problems due to the coordination and cooperation between the QC’s office and the body authorized by the government to manage and supervise the activities of local and international humanitarian organizations.
