Saudi Campaign distributes 4,000 blankets to Syrian refugees in Lebanon
December 13, 2012
The Director of the National Campaign in Support of the Brotherly People of Syria in Lebanon (NCSBPSL), Walid Jalal, announced today that his group is embarking on the second phase of its efforts in the Akar area in northern Lebanon. While the first phase of the Campaign was dedicated to disseminating food rations, the goal of the second phase is to distribute 100,000 blankets. In one day, the Campaign has handed out 4,000 blankets to 1,000 Syrian families. The distribution began in Akar because of its severe winter conditions. Blankets will be handed out next in Arsal, in the northeastern part of Begaa, which is also known for its harsh winters.
