QATAR REACHES OUT TO ROHINGYA VICTIMS
Qatar Fund for Development has joined hands with the Qatar Red Crescent in support of the humanitarian crisis resulting from the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya escaping the escalating violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
Qatar Red Crescent, meanwhile, is preparing to launch an urgent campaign to support the basic needs for refugees in the areas of health, shelter, food and non-food supplies.
Qatar Fund for Development said that Qatar was among the first countries to immediately provide assistance and support after the outbreak of violence in Myanmar, because of the deteriorating humanitarian conditions and increasing number of refugees fleeing to Bangladesh.
General Manager of Qatar Fund for Development, Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari, said this support stems from Qatar's commitment towards vulnerable people who need quick humanitarian support.
