Qatar Charity participated in the Third International NGO Fair, which was held in Istanbul on 17-18 November and attended by 170 organizations from 40 countries.

QC’s participation, through its pavilion at the fair, reflected a bright picture of the humanitarian role played by the State of Qatar. The pavilion also distributed QC’s publications in Arabic and English to visitors, and presented a video clip on QC’s different achievements and activities across the globe.

Qatar Charity, through its participation in the fair, which is the second of its kind, aims to strengthen its relationship with the various organizations operating in the world.

This will contribute to unify and organize the humanitarian effort in order to alleviate the severe suffering of the peoples in the world and upgrade the humanitarian roles.

QC’s pavilion has provided information on the humanitarian roles played by the philanthropists and benefactors from Qatar. It has also given information on the outstanding efforts made by Qatar Charity in partnership with international organizations.

A great number of people visited QC’s pavilion at the fair to know its humanitarian activities across the world. The pavilion was also visited by Ali Kurt, President of the Union of NGOs, Hussein Tauran, a Turkish MP and former President of the Union.

Ahmet Selim Köroğlu, chief advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, opened the Third International NGO Fair on Saturday. He welcomed the participants and stressed that it would contribute to enhancing cooperation, coordination and building humanitarian partnerships with the organizations operating in the world.

The two-day exhibition, which concluded yesterday, included several workshops, training sessions, and capacity building of the participating organizations.

The Union of NGOs of the Islamic World was established in Turkey in 2005, and to date, it has 312 NGO members from 63 countries.

Qatar Charity has opened its regional office in 2016 to oversee its humanitarian and development projects for internally displaced Syrians and Syrian refugees in neighboring countries in addition to its projects implemented in Turkey.

Recently, Qatar Charity has launched its “Below Zero” winter campaign from a refugee camp on the Syrian-Turkish borders by distributing 2,850 food baskets to the needy and sending 20 trucks loaded with food baskets into Syria to be distributed to the displaced Syrians.
