Qatar Charity hands over glucose meters to Qatar Diabetes Association
Qatar Charity (QC) has handed over 45 glucose meters to the Qatar Diabetes Association (QDA (, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), to support people with diabetes who are unable to purchase such medical devices.
The glucose meters provided by Qatar Charity came as part of its responsibility towards society, with the aim of enabling people with diabetes to maintain blood sugar level to live a normal and productive life in a healthy society.
In a press statement on the sidelines of receiving medical devices, Dr. Abdullah Al-Hamaq, Executive Director of QDA, expressed his happiness with this generous contribution from Qatar Charity to help needy people with diabetes.
“Qatar Charity is always extremely skillful at implementing charitable and humanitarian initiatives internationally,” said Al-Hamaq, thanking Qatar Charity for the support.
“These devices will actually contribute to making a difference in the lives of people with diabetes and those at risk of it,” Al-Hamaq added, noting that workers with diabetes are among those most in need of glucose meters, as they can not afford these medical devices along with their accessories on a monthly basis.
He also hoped for continuous cooperation to contribute to improving the lives of the largest possible number of those with diabetes or at risk of it.
For his part, Mr. Farid Siddiqui, head of Projects at the Local Development Department of Qatar Charity said, "We are pleased to contribute to supporting the Qatar Diabetes Association to provide the best health services to people.”
He also emphasized the importance of Qatar Charity’s participation in such noble humanitarian initiatives, which falls within its responsibility towards society.
