Ramadan projects target mainly workers, communities’ members and low-income families
Qatar Charity has allocated QR17.2mn for its Ramadan projects in Qatar, which are expected to benefit approximately 700,000 people throughout the holy month.
Qatar Charity implements many projects and programmes in Qatar throughout the holy month of Ramadan, which include Iftar meals, Zakat al-Fitr, gift, and Eid clothing, cultural programmes, and competitions. It carried out its Ramadan activities in cooperation with youth initiatives, community organizations, and private companies.
It provides Iftar meals mainly to workers and expatriate communities’ members, and distributes Zakat al-Fitr and Eid clothing to low-income families. It also gives Eidi gifts to orphans, whom it sponsors within the country.
This year, Qatar Charity has spread 45 Iftar tables at the cost of 10 million riyals, benefiting more than 350,000 people in 36 areas of Qatar. Through the ‘Mobile Iftar for workers’, Qatar Charity provides meals to workers at their places in industrial areas, Al Khor, and other places where they live. This project is expected to benefit 39,000 workers at the cost of more than 700,000 riyals.
The Ramadan Supply project provides essential foodstuffs for the month of Ramadan to families with limited income. The project valued at nearly QR1.5mn is expected to benefit 10,000 people, while the ‘Mobile Iftar’ involves the distribution of snacks to drivers who are not able to reach their homes to break their fasting. The distribution of Iftar meals is carried out in many places, including Hamad Hospital, benefiting 15,000 people.
As usual, Qatar Charity is implementing a project entitled “Baraha” for many Asian communities residing in Qatar during the holy month of Ramadan, with the aim of enhancing interaction and cohesion among their members. Some 7,500 persons are expected to benefit from Baraha throughout the month.
Qatar Charity is also implementing the ‘From Home to Home’ project to provide Iftar meals to low-income families on a daily basis, benefiting 6,000 people throughout the holy month. Also, water bottles are to congregations in many mosques while they are performing Taraweeh and night prayers, in cooperation with the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs.
In the holy month of Ramadan, Qatar Charity also implements social assistance projects, which include Eid gift, Zakat Al-Fitr, and gifts for orphans, in addition to the Al-Aqraboon initiative, which is under implementation for the fourth consecutive year in cooperation with several media figures, social activists and social media influencers.
The initiative provides financial aid to low-income families and those in need, who face difficult conditions and do not visit charities for help. The total cost is estimated at more than QR 1 million.
