QRCS aids 8,000 Bangladeshis hit by extreme cold wave

By QLNews

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has initiated a project to provide non-food items for the affected households due to the extreme cold wave in Bangladesh.

QRCS said in its statement today that the QR 114,000-project is coordinated with Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Over one month, the personnel from QRCS's representation mission in Bangladesh are distributing a total of 8,000 blankets in Rajshahi City, western Bangladesh. This aid is estimated to help more than 8,000 people, mainly children, women, patients, senior citizens, and persons with disability.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) had been signed with BDRCS to take part in selecting the beneficiaries, procuring the supplies from the local market, and co-distributing the blankets. The target areas are those inaccessible where no humanitarian aid had been delivered.

QRCS already has a winterization drive in progress in nine countries Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Bangladesh, and Turkey. A total of QR 14 million worth of winterisation aid is to be to distribute to more than 225,000 beneficiaries.
