Lebanon receives food baskets from a Saudi assistance organisation


Beqaa – As part of an initiative to assist food security in Lebanon during Ramadan, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre has handed 253.5 tonnes of food baskets to the most vulnerable Syrian refugees in a number of Lebanese localities.
The centre just launched the second part of a programme to help the most vulnerable families in Afghanistan and those devastated by the floods. This was accomplished in collaboration with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC.
In the presence of Mohammad Saleh Akhundzada, head of the emergency division at the Afghan Red Crescent Society, and Mohammed Saeed Al-Ayyash, director of the OIC Mission in Afghanistan, the relief supplies were distributed.

The OIC official emphasised the significance of the Saudi relief operation in easing Afghans’ suffering and said it seeks to provide 11,000 food baskets to 11,000 families across various provinces of Afghanistan.
Akhundzada thanked the Kingdom for offering this support, which will help to lessen the suffering of the Afghan people.
