Qatar Charity (QC) received a QR. 250,000 cheque from Lulu Hypermarket Group Qatar, in support of Qatar Charity’s ‘Charity Partner’ (CP) program. The donated amount was collected through Lulu Group’s ‘Shop & Donate’ initiative, which is annually launched in Ramadan.
Lulu Hypermarket also handed over another cheque of more than QR 50,000 to Qatar Charity in support of its ‘humanitarian barcode’, that is an international barcode through which various amounts can be donated at the Point of Sale Checkout of all Lulu’s branches in Qatar.
CP, which is the largest program of Qatar Charity in the field of social responsibility, is a special trademark awarded to private companies and various bodies and institutions under strategic partnerships, according to different conditions, to support the projects implemented by Qatar Charity globally. CP shows the commitment of these bodies to their responsibilities towards the community.
Mr. Ahmmed Omar AlSherawi, director of Customer Service Department at Qatar Charity, thanked Lulu Group in Qatar for this generous donation. He also praised its continuous support for Qatar Charity’s projects and campaigns over the years, and its efforts in supporting community service and humanitarian causes by signing many agreements with Qatar Charity.
AlSherawi urged all companies and institutions from both public and private sectors to discharge their societal responsibilities, contribute to the community service, and support humanitarian projects.
Mr. Mohammad Altaf, Director of Lulu Group International, expressed his delight by partnering with Qatar Charity that allowed Lulu customers to be partners in supporting the noble humanitarian causes, appreciating the customers’ wholehearted support for Qatar Charity’s humanitarian and charitable activities implemented locally and internationally. He noted that Lulu will support Qatar Charity’s other programs in the future, indicating that he has noticed, during his travels, that donors’ money reach, through Qatar Charity, to those who are really in need and vulnerable communities globally. He praised the commitment of Qatar Charity to humanitarian and charitable causes, which made it one of Lulu’s best partners in humanitarian and charitable work.
Over the past five years, Qatar Charity signed a number of co-operation agreements with LuLu Hypermarket Qatar. The first agreement allows customers to donate when paying bills at various LuLu Hypermarkets to support charitable projects within and outside Qatar.
The second agreement promotes Qatar Charity’s Khair Cards to promote charity among shoppers, while the third agreement involves a co-operation under Lulu’s ‘Shop & Donate’ drive, in addition to Qatar Charity’s ‘CP’ agreement.
