Like all border villages, Al-qaa has a team of trained first-aid residents and an emergency logistics management called the Support & Rescue Team. During the offensive on August 30, the Lebanese army and the Red Cross team provided and managed an action and care plan for the wounded in the rear of the fighting lines, as well as the daily supply of water and food, making four to seven thousand sandwiches per day for the soldiers.
These new missions are added to their primary mission: direct assistance to local populations.
On the morning of August 23, four volunteers and the head of mission leave the headquarters of our association in Beirut and head towards Al-Qaa with a full loaded van. All available space is filled! Once there, the unloading takes place with the support of the members from Support & Rescue Team and the Reading and Cultural Animation Center (CLAC). Thirty mattresses with blankets and pillows, 200 kg of pasta, 300 kg of rice, 150 kg of tinned food are some examples of what has been brought to support the people on the ground in Al-Qaa. The military offensive ends on August 28, with the victory of Lebanese troops.
The entire territory formerly occupied is definitively free from Islamist fighters. These food and business project costs $1500, a big thank you for your help!
