Qatar Charity participates in a panel discussion on "Zakat and Islamic charitable work" in Geneva.


Qatar Charity (QC) participated in a panel discussion on "The Humanitarian potential of Zakat and Islamic Philanthropy" in Annual Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) consultations. The United Nations Higher Commissioner held the panel discussion for Refugees (UNHCR) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Mr. Ahmed Saad Al Rumaihi Head of International Partnerships- Qatar Charity participated in the panel discussion and briefed the participants about Qatar Charity and its operations globally and the different aspects of humanitarian assistance projects for refugees and its impact on their lives.

Participants at the meeting were briefed on innovative projects like WRS projects and cash assistance program using IRIS technology. They were also informed that these projects have tackled the issue of misuse of funds and ensured transparency in the distribution of cash, maintaining dignity of beneficiaries while receiving assistance.

Al Rumaihi was then asked about the partnership with UNHCR and how to tackle the issue of donors’ trust, in which he reflected on the joint campaign (4H) between Qatar Charity and UNHCR in Ramadan.

It is worth mentioning that Qatar Charity (QC) and the UNHCR have launched the QC4HCR initiative to join efforts and co-operate to achieve their common humanitarian goals. The campaign primarily aims to the protection of displaced persons and refugees and the provision of a decent life for them in their countries or countries of asylum.

Our team works to spread the word to the public to increase the numbers potential donors.
