Qatar Charity educates society on winter essentials of refugees

Qatar Charity (QC) has held various activities at the Aspire Park, aiming to educate society on the challenging conditions of Refugees and their Winter Needs, as part of the continuation of activities accompanying the "Warmth and Peace" campaign launched by Qatar Charity for the current winter.

The three-day event aimed at easing the suffering of refugees and workers by meeting their winter needs, raising awareness about the most significant winter safety issues, marketing winter and relief products for the benefit of refugees, and supporting the campaign.

The event included many activities that allowed children to take a picture with a model of a happy child wearing a coat with the logo of Qatar charity, which expressed the delight of the child at having the feeling of warmth. The event also had a tent like a real refugee tent, in which the lives of refugees were explained through video, photos, and interactive games for children, in addition to drawing activities related to refugees and their winter needs.

The children along with their families wrote letters in solidarity with the refugee children. They also were acquainted with the bags of workers, orphans, and refugees.

Besides, the event included a fire-extinguishing workshop given by the General Directorate of Civil Defense, in addition to educating people on public and personal safety. The children got acquainted with firefighting and rescue vehicles, equipment, and services, as well as, they knew how to extinguish the fire inside the camps and homes.

 “Our participation with Qatar Charity in this event came as part the national and societal responsibility to make people aware about safety requirements and fire prevention,” said Lieutenant Khalifa Issa Abdul Rahim, adding that the workshop has received an overwhelming response from children along with their families.
