QATAR’S HUMANITARIAN FOUNDATION CONDUCTS RELIEF PROJECT FOR 6,000 DROUGHT-AFFECTED ETHIOPIANS

DOHA, Qatar, Apr 13 (NNN-QNA) – The Sheikh Thani Bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF), has implemented a relief project for 6,000 drought-affected people in Ethiopia.

The project includes the distribution of supply baskets in several remote villages in the provinces and districts of Ethiopia, as part of the Horn of Africa relief campaign.

The project was implemented in cooperation with the Erchad Association for cooperation and development, RAF partner in Ethiopia, which conducted a field study in most needy areas and identified beneficiary families, before the beginning of the distribution process, taking into account families with no breadwinners, orphans, persons with special needs, the elderly and the sick, who are unable to manage their livelihood.

The assistance was provided within RAF’s humanitarian efforts, to help and rescue Ethiopians in drought-affected areas, whose number exceeds six million.

It also came in response to the humanitarian appeal made by the Ethiopian government, to humanitarian institutions, to quickly rescue those affected by a humanitarian disaster.

In mid-Mar, RAF launched a relief campaign for the Horn of Africa, aimed at raising QR5 million (US$1.37 million) funds, from the benefactors for the relief of those affected by the drought that hit several African countries,

threatening a famine in it, and allocated QR2 million (about US$549,400) to provide urgent response to those affected by the drought.– NNN-QNA
