Qatar Charity Implements 46 income- generating projects in Sudan



To promoting its developmental and humanitarian role in the global areas of intervention, QC implemented 46 income-generating projects in Sudan in favor of more than 322 people during the last months of 2016.

The projects included providing trucks, grain mills and taxis "Rakshah", distributing sewing machines to housewives and implementing poultry and livestock- breeding projects. QC hopes that these projects would bring revenues to enable people to live a decent life.

More than 322 individuals benefited from these projects that amounted to a quarter of a million Qatari Riyals.  They were carried out in Khartoum State, Northern State and South Kordofan.

Mr. Hussein Kermash, the Director of QC Office in Sudan said, "The income-generating projects are important as they alleviate the suffering of the poor and low-income people under the conditions of lack of employment. In addition, they encourage these groups to be self-reliant through providing a decent work with constant income."

He assured that QC office in Sudan carried out a feasibility study to ensure the benefit of these projects. The feasibility study revealed that these projects are useful and income generating, and they will improve the living conditions of hundreds of individuals and families. Therefore, QC office in the Sudan have funded them immediately.

Mr. Kermash extended his sincere thanks to the people of Qatar and the residents in Qatar for their ongoing support and donations in favor of the different projects implemented in the Sudan.  These projects increase the individuals' productivity and integrate them into the economic life, so that they become productive people who can support the country's economic growth and sustain their families as well.

QC Provides Job Opportunities

Because it always supports the neediest categories and because it always tries to fulfill its duty towards the orphans it sponsors, QC signed a strategic partnership with Hemaya Security Solutions Co. to hire more than 250 orphans of legal age in Sudan. This initiative is considered to be the first of its kind ever to be implemented by a charity organization. Mr. Rashid Abdurrahman Al-Naimi, Qatar’s Ambassador in Sudan, Mr. Faisal Rashid Al-Fahida, QC’s EDO, and Mr. Falih Hamad Al-Hajri, Chief of Governmental Relations Department at Hemaya, supervised the starting of the interviews. More than 548 candidates applied for the job. 400 of which were interviewed by Hemaya’s delegate Mr. Falih Ahmed Al-Hajri. The interviews lasted for four consecutive days; then 319 were selected to work for Hemaya. 250 of them were from orphans and 59 of them were from the orphans’ families. Commendations Mr. Rashid Abdurrahman Al-Naimi, Qatar’s ambassador in Sudan, praised the cooperation between the Qatari institutions to achieve humanitarian and charitable goals. He said it shows Qatar’s bright side. Furthermore, Mr. Faisal Rashid Al-Fahida, QC’s EDO, commended the outcome of the partnership between Hemaya Co and QC. Such initiative will result in the enhancement of the conditions of many families. Mr. Falih Hamad Al-Hajri, Chief of Governmental Relations Department at Hemaya, emphasized on the company’s willingness to expand its partnership and increase the work with QC under the understanding of the responsibilities of the Qatari institutions to make a positive change in people’s lives and to empower them economically.  All of the interviewees expressed their appreciation and gratitude for Qatar and QC for such a good initiative hoping more orphans and poor families would benefit from it. The EDO said that according to QC’s procedures and regulations, the sponsorship time ends when the orphan becomes of a legal age; 18 and above. However, QC never stops helping them until they are financially independent. Sponsorship Services QC offers two kinds of services to the sponsored children. First, it offers individual services such as regularly giving money to the sponsored during the time of sponsorship, and directly supervising the student’s education, health, social behavior and psychology. In addition, it offers in-kind contributions every now and then which help the child such as giving him\her a school bag or Eidya.   Second, it offers a group services which include all the activities QC does for a group of sponsored children at the same time. These services and activities can be cultural, artistic, educational, sport, or entertaining. Sponsorships differ and depend on the conditions of the orphan. There is the sponsorship of a child living with his family, a child living with a foster family, and a child living in an orphanage. Sponsoring children while living with their families comes first because QC believes in the importance of growing up around one’s family. Family is a healthy environment which supports the child educationally, psychologically, emotionally and socially. Sponsoring children by sending them to foster families comes second. Finally, if the first and second choices are not available, QC sends children to an acknowledged orphanage. 85,000 Orphans QC is currently sponsoring more than 3,489 orphans in 8 Sudanese states. It provides them with financial and educational support, and offers them cultural and entertaining activities. As part of last year’s campaign “Rofaqa’” (Companions), QC sponsored more than 750 orphans in Sudan. Finally, QC sponsors around 85,000 orphans around the world in more than 40 countries.        


QC Supports Agricultural Coope

QC continues to fight unemployment through implementing and supporting income-generating projects, and contributing to the enhancement of food situation in the poor societies. In the Comoros, for example, QC’s office supported one of the agricultural cooperatives there. The Cooperative is taking place in Azew in the north of Ngazidja Island. Its members include some young farmers and graduates from agricultural institutes. QC’s support was through cultivating and planting a 10-hectare field, planting fruit trees (1,000 banana trees, 6,000 sugarcanes, and 500 pineapple trees), different vegetables and potato. The equipment was delivered to the cooperative during a ceremony held by QC in the Comoros. Several senior figures attended such as His Excellency Mr. Jaber Nasser Al Na’imi, Chargé d'affaires of Qatar Embassy in Moroni; the Commissioner of the Ministry of Agriculture in the Comoros, some local officials from the North of Ngazidja Island and Mr. Mahfouz Zmirlin, QC’s Office Director there.   In his speech, the Commissioner of the Ministry of Agriculture commended Qatar’s efforts in supporting the people of the Comoros and praised the Qatari charity organizations in general and QC in particular for its distinguished projects. QC has implemented projects to fight unemployment and poverty, to reinforce the youth in the field of agricultural cooperatives, and to enhance the food and economic statuses of the country. He also encouraged QC to implement more agricultural projects.   This project is beneficial in so many ways; it plays a role in enhancing the food situation of the people of the Comoros, it is part of the income-generating projects, it fights diseases caused by malnutrition, it helps the unemployed become more independent, it contributes to the development of the countryside and the local economy, it is expected to contribute to the increase of vegetables and fruits and to provide them in the local market thus increase the poor farmers’ income.   In the Comoros, agriculture is considered to be a conventional occupation. It depends on rainy seasons and is greatly connected to the difficult circumstances. It usually costs a lot which makes the youth give up on it as a profession and go look for a better job opportunity in another country.   In 2012, QC announced the inauguration of 430 income-generation projects through supporting poor families. QC did so through offering benevolent loans to help the people start small economic projects at a cost of 126,800 QR. Furthermore, QC supported and developed the infrastructure of the country’s institutions. At a cost of 876,849,3 QR, QC provided them with a building for official meetings in Moheli, and maintained the road connecting Wanani city with Nioumachoua (17 Km) so as to achieve social communication and encourage tourism. In the past few years, QC equipped and repaired some of the schools and hospitals on the Comoros at a cost of more than 2,000,000 QR. The projects include 26 primary schools in Moheli which comprises 81 classrooms at a cost of around 1,500,000 QR. In addition, the projects were implemented to maintain 4 medical clinics at a cost of more than 500,000 QR. It is worth mentioning that QC was the first humanitarian organization to open a field office in Moroni, the Capital of the Comoros, in 2010 in order to be able to supervise the humanitarian and developmental projects it is planning to implement in the coming years.    You can donate to support such projects through the link: Click here

QC Establishes 3 Water Plants

The project provides clean drinking water for 24,000 people from several villages near the River Nile.   Al Kuwairi: QC's main goals for establishing water plants are to improve the public health of poor communities and to control diseases resulting from polluted water. Al Fadni: The expertise of QC and Islamic Dawa Organization in the field of water will be made use of in other African countries.   QC and Islamic Dawa Organization signed an agreement as part of their joint strategic projects in the field of water. Their agreement is to establish 3 water plants in Sudan for the benefit of 24,000 people. At QC's headquarters in Doha, Youssef bin Ahmed Al Kuwairi, QC's CEO; and Mr. Hammad Abdulqader Al Fadni, General Director of Islamic Dawa Organization – QC Office, signed the agreement in the presence of Mr. Mohammed bin Ali Al Ghamdi, CEO for International Development and Mr. Ahmed Al Ameen Al Fadni, Director of Public Relations at Islamic Dawa Organization.   Main Network QC and Islamic Dawa signed this agreement because of their desire to join forces so as to solve issues related to water pollution in the targeted areas of Sudan. They also want to invest their expertise in the field of water. They are funding the water project in Hasaya Ad-damir, Al Makabrab, Al Aqida, El Kitayab, Banqa, Om Turifi in River Nile Wilaya. The project will provide these places with clean drinking water at a cost of 4,000,000 QR; each party will pay half of the total cost (i.e. 2,000,000 QR). QC has to implement the project and offer services to the affected people according to the specifications assigned in the project's agreement. Around 24,000 villagers who suffer from the shortage in drinking water will benefit from the project. Around 2,400 m3 of the River Nile water will be withdrawn every day, treated, purified and then distributed through the main network to the villages. The implementation of the project begins this April after the funding procedures are over. The work will last for 9 months until it is entirely done.   Signing a Joint Agreement On the sideline of signing the agreement, Mr. Al Kuwairi expressed his gratitude to Islamic Dawa Organization for choosing QC as a main partner to implement this kind of projects. "This reflects how much Islamic Dawa trusts QC, and is a sign for continuous cooperation and development. QC's main goals for establishing water plants are to improve the public health of poor communities and to control diseases resulting from polluted water. QC also aims at enabling poor communities to manage water plants projects. Using environmentally friendly and easily maintained technologies in water plants projects reinforces their sustainability," said he. Al Kuwairi stressed on the fact that the success of their previous water project was a key motive in joining again for the implementation of other cooperation projects in Sudan and other countries. For his part, Mr. Hammad Abdulqader expressed his happiness for signing an agreement which seeks establishing 3 new water plants in Sudan. "Islamic Dawa Organization and QC consider providing clean drinking water one of the most important sectors in our field of work. The expertise of QC and Islamic Dawa Organization in the field of water will be made use of in other African countries. This is the best way we could serve the African people." Mr. Al Fadni pointed to the fact that water treatment projects are considered very important, for they help provide communities with clean drinking water clear from solid, organic and bacterial pollutants. Drinking polluted water can cause severe health issues for humans and animals.   Saqadi Village Water Plant It is worth mentioning that QC had already established a water plant in Saqadi, Ad-Damir in Sudan, in partnership with Qatar Red Crescent and Islamic Dawa Orgaization at a cost of more than 3,000,000 QR. 20,000 people benefit directly from this water plant. The plant bumps water from the Nile River at a rate of around 2,000 m3 daily to the plant's tanks. The water is then delivered and distributed through the main network to 17 villages of Saqadi.
