BEIRUT, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. An Il-76 plane of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has delivered another humanitarian consignment to Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, for Syrian refugees, the Russian embassy in Beirut told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
A 33 ton cargo that includes tents, diesel powered generators and oil heaters were handed over to the emergencies committee under the Lebanese government, which was in charge of distributing humanitarian aid for refugees.
On January 21, a plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry brought to Beirut two portable power stations, tents, blankets, dishware and oil heaters.
In 2013 the Russian Emergencies Ministry sent over 200 tons of humanitarian aid to Syria and neighboring Lebanon and Jordan. Another 70 tons were intended for Palestinian refugees in Syria.
The ministry’s planes brought around 900 citizens of Russia and CIS member-states back to their homeland.
Moreover, the Russian Heath Ministry and the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society also stretched their helping hand to Syrians affected by the war. On January 19, a plane of Syrian Airlines delivered a two ton humanitarian aid for orphaned children collected by the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society to Damascus.
