QATAR RED CRESCENT SECURES EMERGENCY SHELTER FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES IN LEBANON

DOHA, Qatar, - Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), has provided emergency shelter for Syrian refugees, whose tents were damaged by the recent bad weather.

In the Lebanese town of Arsal, tents were toppled by strong winds and heavy rainfall.

In a press release, QRCS said, it immediately secured some shelter structures, as a source of warmth for the Syrian refugees and their children, in the face of frosty weather.

Arsal is a mountainous town, located some 2,000 metres above sea level, and it is known for very low temperatures in the winter.

To avoid the impact of blizzards on Syrian refugees living in Arsal, QRCS is contacting local, regional, and international organisations, to create a joint rapid emergency intervention team, which can provide instant help for Arsal refugees, in case of floods, snowstorms, or any other natural disasters.
