In the context of continuing its efforts to sponsor and care for orphans and with generous support from philanthropists, Qatar Charity has completed building and equipping four new orphanages in three regions in Bangladesh to provide an integrated and safe educational environment to ensure a better future for them.
The four new orphanages have been built in Gangachara in Rangpur district, Kumarkhali in Kushtia district, and South Surma in Sylhet city.
Each of the four floors was built on an area of 9000 square meters and each of them consists of two floors containing basic facilities and equipped with the latest equipment. There is a school inside each of them that includes laboratories, a hall for computers, a dining hall, a kitchen, toilets, and a mosque for prayer. It also has internal sections for the accommodation and accommodation of orphan students, each of which can accommodate 200 orphan students, bringing the total number of students who currently enjoy residence in these homes to 800 orphans.
During his participation in the opening ceremony of one of these homes, Mr. Razib Islam Khan, a local official, said: “Children suffer from insufficient attention, especially orphans, and they have the right to live with dignity,” noting that “thanks to the support of the philanthropists in Qatar and the efforts of Qatar Charity, the students are in the school.” They will receive social care for a long time during their sponsorship, residence, and studies at the home.”
For her part, Mrs. Taslima Begum, a local official, said that building orphanages are one of Qatar Charity's humanitarian initiatives, and we hope that it will continue its efforts to care for orphaned and disadvantaged children.
The children expressed their overwhelming happiness with these facilities, including the orphan child Hussein, who lost his father when he was three years old, and it was very difficult for his family to provide him with an opportunity to complete his studies and enjoy a decent life due to the difficult circumstances. Fortunately, he obtained sponsorship from Qatar Charity when he was six years old and is now a student in the eighth grade.
Hussein expressed his happiness to join the orphanage of Qatar Charity in the Rangpur area and to enjoy residence and studying there with all the facilities and services available.
Hussain says: We are very happy here. In addition to accommodation and education, there are many other facilities, including a library and a computer room.
Hussein expressed his sincere thanks and gratitude to the philanthropists in Qatar and to Qatar Charity for providing this modern building for the benefit of orphaned children.
It is worth noting that Qatar Charity sponsors about 3,000 orphaned children in Bangladesh who receive comprehensive social care. It has schools and boarding departments.
