The Jordanian, Iraqi and Lebanese Red Crescents have appealed to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to address the companies that produce the COVID-19 vaccines to provide the vulnerable people with the vaccines in order to preserve their lives.

Presidents of the three Red Crescent bodies expressed their concern about the number of refugees and migrants across the world, which has exceeded 80 million, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the United Nations.

In a press statement issued Tuesday in Amman, the three officials indicated that these vulnerable people suffer from "hardships and difficult living conditions, in addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has become life-threatening."
