Targeting access to 885 thousand people in 40 countries, Qatar Charity Launches its Annual Iftar Project across the World

Qatar Charity has launched its annual Iftar project for the upcoming holy month of Ramadan in 40 countries across the world.

Focusing on reaching as many beneficiaries as they can, Qatar Charity is exerting all its efforts in order to reach countries witnessing crises, special circumstances, or natural disasters. This requires increasing the allocated sums of money for the project’s budget, in addition to increasing efforts to reach beneficiaries in their current sanctuaries following displacement.

Qatar Charity urges benevolent people and donors to offer their Zakat, charities, and donations for this project, which will alleviate much of the suffering of hundreds of thousands of fasting Muslims in the targeted countries.

This project will provide meals to approximately 98,000 Syrian people in their transitional shelters in Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq, as well as Syrians who have been internally displaced.

Additionally, Qatar Charity will target around 13,000 people in different governorates in Yemen. Qatar Charity will also provide Iftar meals to approximately 8000 Iraqi people who have been internally displaced from conflict areas such as the Anbar and Mosul provinces.

In the current project, Qatar Charity seeks to provide Iftar meals to Palestinians in Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank. The estimated target group in Palestine is around 43,000 Palestinians.  

Moreover, Qatar Charity will target more than 53,000 Somalis, and will reach them in different towns and villages in Somalia as well as in refugee camps, where a large number of Somalis currently reside due to continuous armed conflict in their original areas of residence.

In this project, Qatar Charity will also offer Iftar meals to approximately 28,000 people in Nepal, which was recently hit by a destructive earthquake that led to the displacement of thousands from their places of residence.
