Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has delivered food aid for the benefit of 30,000 internally displaced persons in the governorates of Nineveh and Erbil in Iraq.
Food parcels of cubed beef stew were distributed, each sufficient for a five-member family, based on the needs of every camp in Erbil and Mosul.
In a press statement, the Director of Relief and International Development at QRCS Dr.
Mohammed Salah Ibrahim said: "With this aid, we seek to meet the needs of the displaced Iraqis in the war-affected areas, particularly with the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan. The distributions came in time, after months of coordination with the partners and authorities in Iraq".
Dr Ibrahim explained: "The cubed beef stew is an innovative humanitarian solution.
Traditionally, food aid was restricted to dried food products, because they last long and do not need a fridge. The same advantages are found in the cubed beef stew, which is in compliance with safety standards and the Islamic law. The shelf life of the product is three years, and it provides the body with vital nutrients".
He thanked the donors for supporting this project, promising to do their best in order to overcome any challenges and reach out to the vulnerable everywhere.
