Al Jazeera donates financial prize to QC refugee projects

Doha – 25/03/2015: Al Jazeera Media Network has donated QAR 55,000 to QC refugee support projects.

The money was awarded to Al Jazeera by HH Sheikh Salem Al-Ali Al-Sabah Informatics Award, who named the website first news website in Arabic and among the top five news websites in the world.

A delegation from Al Jazeera, headed by Muhammad Mukhtar, Chief Editor, and including Head of the Department of International Relations, Ihtesham Hebatullah, presented the check to QC Collections Executive Director, Abdullah Al-Dosari, in the presence of Nasser Al Yafei, Executive Director for Local Development, and Ali Al-Gharib, Head of QC Centers for Community Development.

Mukhtar said: “This donation comes in the context of the social role of Al Jazeera towards citizens in the Arab world and worldwide; declaring our solidarity with the continuing refugee issues in the Arab world and indeed internationally.”

“Qatar Charity is a leading Arab organization in the service of humanitarian issues through welfare projects, and we hope that this donation will be a step forward in the integration between the media in highlighting the plight of refugees, and the charitable work which is carried out by Qatar Charity in the service of our Arab societies,” he added.

Upon receipt of the donation, Yafei gave his sincere thanks and appreciation to Al Jazeera for its generous donation, directed towards alleviating the suffering of refugees. Yafei pointed out that the donation proves the high level of social responsibility of the network and complements QC’s efforts in disaster relief and the fight against poverty.

“Qatar Charity believes in the importance of partnership and cooperation with national institutions, in order to support us in meeting the needs of refugees and displaced persons across the world,” Yafei said.

The Sheikh Salem Al-Ali Informatics Award was presented to Al Jazeera in a special ceremony held in Kuwait City late last year and attended by the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah.
