DUBAI, UAE, June 6: The Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor Foundation (KAHF) has ramped up its Ramadan campaign in Lebanon, launching a second campaign aimed at conducting humanitarian relief over the Holy month.
The first campaign, which ran from 1-5 June, saw the KAHF distributing more than 5,000 food parcels to families in need. The second campaign, will run from 6-10 June. The KAHF is collaborating with the Humanitarian and Development Aid Office of the UAE Embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Relief and Humanitarian Aid Organisation (Dar Al Fatwa).
It includes a further 9,500 food packages to be distributed to people in need around the country. Fifty per cent of the rations will be given to Syrian refugees in Lebanon, 20 per cent will go to Palestinian refugees, and 30 per cent will be distributed to Lebanese citizens.
The second phase of the campaign will concentrate on providing relief in Beirut, Saida, Iqlim Al-Kharroub, Aramoun, Bchemoun, Akkar, Bakke, Arsal and Hrar. Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Chairman, Al Habtoor Group and Founder of the KAHF, has been assisting people in need in Lebanon for many years. Several years ago he set up the Foundation in his name to bring all his charities under one umbrella aimed at helping people around the world.
“The Ramadan campaign in Lebanon is designed to help Syrian, Palestinian and Lebanese people over the Holy month. It is important for them to know they are not forgotten. I encourage everyone to think of those less fortunate than themselves. Lebanon is struggling to cope with many refugees, but it is also important to remember the impoverish Lebanese people too.
