The relief committee of Lebanon's Dar Al-Fatwa (Fatwa House), on Tuesday, announced a project to provide food aid during the fasting month of Ramadan, financed by the Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation (KAPF), and under supervision of Kuwait's Zakat House.
The project will cover 15,000 Lebanese and Syrian refugee families nationwide, head of the committee, Riyadh Itani told KUNA.
He added that, they started distributing the food aid in the capital Beirut, as the project has included 1,750 Lebanese families.
Next week, food supplies will be offered to Syrian families in the Lebanese capital.
Today, the committee offered 1,000 food packages in the Bab Al-Tabbaneh neighbourhood in Tripoli, north, in cooperation with the Lebanese Army, Itani said.
He highly appreciated Kuwait's leading role to help the Lebanese and the Syrians in Lebanon.
The KAPF and the Zakat House, as well as other Kuwaiti benefactors, have been presenting aid to the Syrian refugees throughout the year, since the eruption of the Syrian crisis in 2011
