Lebanon has received 524 tonnes of food aid from Turkey, the National News Agency (NNA) reported.
This humanitarian aid, including baby formula and other food products, arrived at the Port of Tripoli and will be distributed to members of the Internal Security Forces, General Security, and Civil Defense, NNA said.
At the ceremonay held for the food aid, Turkish Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Baris Ulusoy expressed Turkey’s keenness to support Lebanon’s security agencies facing the difficult economic and financial conditions in the country.
Another ship carrying 1,000 tonnes of food and flour will reach Tripoli before the month of Ramadan, which falls on April 2 in Lebanon this year, Ulusoy said, adding they will be delivered to the most vulnerable families in the country.
China, France, Jordan, and Egypt have also sent donations to the Lebanese army to help it overcome its serious challenges amid the financial crisis in the country. ■
