BEIRUT, February 15. /TASS/. A delegation led by Mufti of Moscow Ildar Alyautdinov delivered humanitarian aid to hundreds of Syrian families living in two refugee camps in northern Lebanon.
"We visited two camps in Lebanon’s Akkar district near Tripoli to hand over warm clothes, blankets, pillows, mattresses, other necessities, as well as medicines and grocery packs bought on charity donations," the mufti told TASS during his visit to Lebanon.
"We did it on behalf of all Russians, to show that our country is determined to bring peace to Syria," he added.
It was the first foreign charity project of the Moscow Muftiate.
"We plan to continue our assistance and want to bring a group of doctors here and set up a school, so that refugee children had an opportunity to continue their education. Besides, we want to organize guardianship for a hundred of Syrian orphans," he said.
