- Alghatrifi: Without the support of people of Qatar, patients of Dar Alshafqa would become homeless.
- Director of QC office in Yemen: We hope that benefactors in Qatar continue their support to enable Dar Alshafqa complete its humanitarian mission.
Taking into account the conditions of patients and their companions, QC contributed through a charitable contribution from a benefactor of State of Qatar in supporting the operating budget of " Dar Alshafqa” as to take care of kidney failure patients and cancer in Yemen after they were leaving to nowhere as a result of support stoppage from the donors.
Qatar Charity (International Charity Organization) support contributed to reducing the suffering of kidney failure and cancer patients coming from the Yemeni provinces to Sanaa, where Dar Alshafqa provides them with food and transportation to and from hospitals.
Dar Alshafqa was founded in 2008 and it has served about 3000 patients during the past period, providing them with adequate shelters, food, and transportation to hospitals for treatment. Yet, the situation has worsened after the recent crisis in Yemen many people were displaced from their provinces and dozens of patients came to Dar Alshafqa which already suffers from a significant shortfall to accommodate the growing number of patients.
Saving dozens of patients
Mansour Alghatrifi, Director of Dar Alshafqa, said that the support of the people of Qatar through QC has provided part of the operational budget which contributed to saving dozens of homeless patients. Alghatrifi stressed that QC support enabled them to continue to provide health and nutrition services to hundreds of patients despite the urgent need to more support due to increasing number of patients who were displaced from different regions because of the difficult situation in Yemen.
Alghatrifi called upon humanitarian institutions to provide more support and help to Dar Alshafqa to develop and expand its activities, stressing on his great confidence of QC and Qatari benefactors who always provide much more support to the Yemeni people.
Support of benefactors
Mr. Nasr Qayid Alzzaeim, Director of Qatar Charity office in Yemen, said that QC has launched this humanitarian initiative to promote its humanitarian efforts in Yemen, providing everything that would help the Yemeni people to overcome this difficult situation. It was unreasonable to leave hundreds of patients who suffer from incurable disease, so we contributed to help and support Dar Alshafqa, hoping that benefactors in Qatar will continue their support.
Alzzaeim pointed out that QC is aware of health and humanitarian problems resulting from the crisis in Yemen, stressing that QC will do its best to support Dar Alshafqa and provide medicine, food and clothes to the patients.
The operational budget of Dar Alshafqa is QR 470,000 annually, in addition to food expenses, QR 220,000, and other expenses, including helping patients in their treatment and transportation.
