On Thursday, Lebanon’s Ministry of Public Health received two batches of around 991,000 liters of fuel from Qatar via the Qatar Fund for Development.
The aid is expected to support more than 40 hospitals, health facilities, and elderly care homes.
Qatar provided multiple aids to Lebanon this year with the pledge of $60 million to the Lebanese Army a few weeks ago.
In July 2021 and June 2022, Qatar also donated to the Lebanese Army 70 tons of food supplies each time.
Since the start of the economic crisis, hospitals in Lebanon struggled to work efficiently due to extreme power cuts that lead to a high number of cases of infected people.
