Saudi Red Crescent team provides relief to isolated Lebanese village

A Saudi Red Crescent team brought the first food aid to the isolated Lebanese border village of Maroon Al-Ras. Other relief organizations could not reach the village due to the dangerous situation there.

The risky relief mission is part of a Saudi Red Crescent Society plan to provide food aid to those areas in the south of Lebanon which have been severely affected by the recent violence but are difficult to reach.
