Qatar Charity (QC) has distributed urgent relief aid to hundreds of families affected by the flash flooding in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The relief intervention is part of Qatar Charity’s humanitarian duty towards those affected by the disasters and crises.
The aid was distributed by the field teams of Qatar Charity’s office in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in cooperation and coordination with the competent local authorities in the country. The aid, which included food supplies, personal hygiene items, and safe drinking water, has directly benefited 2,500 people in the areas most affected by winter’s heavy rains that caused flash flooding.
Besides, Qatar Charity has started distributing the winterization aid in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as part of its ‘Warmth and Peace’ campaign. The aid includes food supplies, clothes, blankets, and firewood to help underprivileged families cope with a harsh winter.
