"It is out of brotherly duty and Islamic commitment to relieve the needy that the philanthropists in Qatar should contribute to sending urgent aids to the Yemenis."
"We thank Qatar and the philanthropists who have shown great support to the affected-Yemenis."
"The projects help build the society and reconnect its members despite the threat of breaking apart most of Yemini cities face."
For the benefit of 7,000 people in Yemen, QC continues to implement relief projects for the affected and displaced Yemenis in Al Baydaa, Ma'rib, and Taiz at a total cost of 500,000 QR for the benefit of 7,000 people.
The project was financed by the waqf (mortmain property) of Jassim Darwish. It included distributing 600 food parcels each comprised of 50 Kg of wheat, 10 Kg of sugar, 10 Kg of rice, 900 g of dried milk, 5 liters of oil, a pack of legumes (24 cans),1kg of tea, 2,400 blankets and 2,400 suits for children.
The project covered Al Qahirah, Al Mudhaffar, Salh, Mashra'a Wa Hadnan Districts in Taiz; Majzar District in Ma'rib; Al Baydaa, As Sawma'ah, Mukayras, Az Zahir, Dhi Na'im, and As Sawadiah Districts in Al Baydaa.
Thousands of families lost their houses and their sources of income; these people were forced to leave their homes.
Mr. Mohammed Al Ka'bi, QC's Relief Director, said,"600 families benefited from the food supplies and blankets, and 2,400 children from the clothes. 7,000 people were made happy because of the aids. QC contributed to the alleviation of their sufferance, and reinforced their psychological and food stability. I encourage all the Qatari philanthropists and good doers living in Qatar to aid their brothers and sisters in Yemen. It is out of brotherly duty and Islamic commitment to relieve the needy that the philanthropists in Qatar should contribute to sending urgent aids to the Yemenis".
For his part, Mr. Abdul Kareem Shiban, Member of the House of Representatives in Taiz, said, "Such projects' impacts do not include filling empty stomachs only. Rather, they help build the society and reconnect its members despite the threat of breaking apart most of Yemini cities face. We certainly thank all those responsible for the waqf of Jassim Darwish, Qatar's prince, government and people. In Yemen, the number of needy people is increasing; they need more humanitarian attention especially that the list of their needs is growing as well."
QC hosted a preparatory workshop organized by QC and 12 other humanitarian organizations. It was attended by His Excellency Mr. Abdul-Raqib Saif Fath, Minister of Local Administration and the Chairman of the Higher Committee for Relief in Yemen.
The initiative committee included the Higher Committee for Relief in Yemen, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Arab League, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (Saudi Arabia), The International Committee of the Red Cross (Switzerland), Qatar Charity Society, International Humanitarian City (Emirates), International Medical Corps (United States of America), International Islamic Charitable Organization (Kuwait), Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH Turkey), Start Network (Britain), and International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA in Switzerland).
The workshop was held for the preparation of the Conference of Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen: Challenges and Prospects of the Humanitarian Response. The initiators met for consultation, coordination and cooperation so as to face the deteriorating situation of the Yemenis and their increasing sufferings.
Megh and Chapala cyclones hit Socotra Island and a number of coast cities in the south of Yemen. QC was the first humanitarian society to reach the cyclone-affected people there. So far, QC has implemented 2 relief projects to aid those people; the first project was implemented for the Chapala-affected in Socotra Island, Hadramawt, Al Mahrah, and Shabwah from which 500 families benefited. The other project was for the Megh-affected from which 9,150 people benefited. The aids it offered included food baskets, blankets, mattresses, kitchen tools (for each family), and cooked meals for those whose houses were destroyed.
