QC is the First Association Licensed to Work in Pakistan

  • Al-Fahida, “This certification reflects the credibility and transparency of QC’s work around the world. Our offices facilitate rapid intervention and allow continuous follow up with our development projects.”

The Pakistani Authorities granted QC a license to practice humanitarian work in the Pakistani territories. QC is, thus, one of the first 2 of 127 acting nongovernmental organizations who had applied for the license.

This was part of the Pakistani Authority’s attempt to organize the activities of civil society organizations on their land after they had banned all the memorandums related to licensing NGOs.


Professionalism and Transparency

Although the Pakistani Government allowed the NGOs to work until they were allowed to apply again to the authorities for licensing, it set a number of standards and mechanisms for field work in Pakistan. The 127 organizations applied for the license and the first two approved applications were QC’s and the Belgian Doctors without Borders’.

Mr. Faysal Al-Fahida, QC’s Director of Operation, thanked the Pakistani Authorities for trusting the Association. This proved –as he said- the credibility and transparency of QC’s work.

Al-Fahida added that QC conveys through its offices a message of hope to all the needy people around the world, regardless of their identity. QC –he said- would continue on the road that was built on professionalism and transparency.


Welcoming and Celebrating

The Pakistani Media –both English and Urdu- celebrated the news of approving QC and the Belgian Doctors Without Borders as the first of 127 NGOs who had applied for new Memorandums of Understanding. Pakistani Government had called off the work by previous memorandums since November 2013.

Many of those concerned with the humanitarian work in Pakistan praised the news via the media. They considered it important to commend QC and the way it conducted its work. QC’s office consequently received many calls of felicitations.


 Renewable Benevolentness

QC started its activity in Pakistan in 1992 as a local association. It works through 5 field offices in Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber. It also has representatives in Kashmir and Balochistan. Its activities include the fields of health, education, economic enabling, relief, water and sanitation, and crafts training centers. In the field of social care, QC sponsors more than 4,000 orphans, poor families, and students in the 21 districts of Pakistan’s four provinces –Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber- as well as Kashmir. QC’s office coordinates with 7 orphanages in Punjab and Khyber.

Pakistan’s office cooperates with local organizations to ease the sufferance of the neediest categories. It also coordinates with UNICEF to implement projects of water and sanitation, health facilities, awareness and suburban seminars, and to organize festivals on the occasion of “World Day of Clean Hands”. The festivals include distributing thousands of personal hygiene kits to school students in Rajunpur, Rahim Yar Khan, and Bannu districts. QC also works with UNICEF to construct facilities for the disabled and sewage networks for the displaced of Waziristan Region.


Spread Widely

Having 19 offices around the world, QC has the ability to rapidly intervene in case of catastrophes. This also enables it to observe its development and construction projects and supervise its sponsored orphans, students, needy families, and disabled persons.

QC’s offices are in: Sudan, Palestine, Mali, Mauritania, Somalia, Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo, Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Niger, Yemen, Tunisia, Comoros, Kenya, Chad, and Djibouti. It is worth mentioning that QC’s operation department is planning to open new field offices in Morocco, Jordan, Turkey, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, and Ghana.
