Over QR94 million raised under 'Lebanon in Our Hearts' campaign

By QLNews

Qatar has always come forth with its strong humanitarian spirit to support countries across the world in times of crisis and emergency.

Stressing the need for international solidarity and unity, the Gulf state has aided several countries more recently through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following the devastating explosion that took place in Lebanon’s capital Beirut on August 4, Qatar did not waste any time to mobilize efforts to offer assistance.

In addition to sending urgent medical aid, including two fully equipped field hospitals to treat those injured in the explosion, a search and rescue team from Qatar’s Internal Security Force also made its way to the Lebanese capital.

Qatar’s leadership, its people, and several companies have come together and generously pour out humanitarian aid and donations in different ways.

Under the ‘Lebanon in Our Hearts’ fundraising campaign, more than QR94 million have been raised, according to Qatar’s Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA).

During the first day of the fundraising campaign, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani had donated QR50 million.

The second day also saw tremendous support from local citizens and companies.

Until the end of the live transmission on Qatar TV yesterday, the campaign’s total sum of funds reached QR94,052,940.

The campaign is ongoing and those who wish to contribute can do so through Qatar Charity and Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS).

Some of the major donors on Day 2 comprised: QNB – with a donation of QR2, million, Masraf Al Rayyan – with QR1.5 million, and Ooredoo, International Islamic Bank, QR1 million, Nasser bin Rashid Sarai al-Kaabi and Alfardan Group with QR1 million each.

Jaidah Group and Al Darwish United Company donated QR 500,000 each.

Qatar Airways said it has tied up with talabat, Qatar Charity and Monoprix, to send a planeload of food supplies, with donations open through the talabat app.

A number of community organizations in Qatar also came forward to contribute to the campaign with different amounts.
