This shipment includes 10,000 food packages, which were delivered through Jordan in cooperation with UNRWA. More than half of the quantity has been distributed so far. This is part of Qatar Charity's ongoing humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza, which began in October and continues until now. The aid encompasses various areas such as food, health, shelter, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), through urgent response interventions and assistance via the Qatari bridge. Qatar Charity has shipped over 1,010 tons of aid through 97 planes via the Qatari air bridge. This aid includes 840 tons of food supplies and around 170 tons of shelter materials, non-food items, clothing, medical supplies, and hygiene kits. Urgent Relief Project The urgent relief project of Qatar Charity also included significant additional aid, the most important of which are more than one million hot meals, approximately 70,000 food packages, more than 27,000 bags of flour, 1,250 vouchers for clothes, nearly 12,000 blankets, and 8,000 sleeping mats with accessories. Recently, 13 trucks carrying food and medical supplies were also transported through Jordan. Qatar Charity continues to implement the ‘Labbeh Gaza’ campaign, aiming to provide the essential needs of the people in the Gaza Strip in the areas of food, shelter, and medicine. The campaign seeks to benefit 550,000 persons, with a total cost estimated at QR 40 million. Besides, Qatar Charity continues to implement the Dhul-Hijjah Campaign for the 1445 AH – 2024 season, aiming to benefit approximately 3.5 million people across the globe. The campaign seeks to distribute sacrificial meat within and outside Qatar, in addition to gathering support for implementing various developmental projects worldwide and carrying out relief interventions in Palestine and Gaza. Qatar Charity has developed a plan for humanitarian and development programs and projects in Gaza. This plan aims to mobilize resources and support as pledged at the 9th Conference on Effective Partnership for Better Humanitarian Aid, which was held in Kuwait in May to strengthen humanitarian interventions and early recovery efforts in the Gaza Strip, and achieve effective response and reconstruction. The total estimated cost for these projects is approximately $120 million. These projects cover life-saving interventions, shelter, health, education, and economic empowerment.

Qatar Charity to provide Adahi for the affected in Gaza, Palestine
As part of its Dhul-Hijjah campaign, and with the support of benefactors, Qatar Charity (QC) seeks to launch a Udhiyah project to benefit the people of Gaza. This project aims to provide 1,200 cattle for Palestine, including 700 for Gaza and 500 for Ramallah and other cities in the West Bank. This initiative comes as part of Qatar Charity’s efforts to support needy families and draw a smile on the faces of the affected people in Gaza and the West Bank, Palestine and bring joy to children and promote the values of solidarity and compassion. The Udhiyah project will be implemented in Ramallah and the West Bank in coordination with Qatar Charity's team in Ramallah. In the Gaza Strip, Qatar Charity will strive to implement the Udhiyah project based on the available options. Mr. Mana Al-Ansari, Director of Emergency and Relief at Qatar Charity, emphasized the organization's commitment to performing the Udhiyah sacrifices for the people of Gaza within the prescribed time and delivering the meat to needy families. He explained, 'There are several methods for handling the Udhiyah for Gaza. The first is slaughtering within Gaza, though the available animals are limited and insufficient. The second method involves slaughtering at the borders, either in Jordan or Egypt, within the prescribed time, then freezing the meat and transporting it later. The third option is to slaughter in a distant country, can the meat, and ship it by air to Gaza.' He added, 'If more requests are received from donors, we will resort to slaughtering at the borders and freezing the meat. If the requests increase beyond what is available in Egypt, Jordan, and Gaza, canning remains an option,” noting that “several partners in Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey have been contacted.” The campaign focuses on regions and countries experiencing exceptional circumstances or natural disasters, such as Palestine, Sudan, and Yemen, in addition to Syrian IDPs and refugees. Qatar Charity urges the people of Qatar to continue supporting those affected in Gaza and Palestine. Contributions can be made conveniently through Qatar Charity's website [qch.qa/adha-e]. Also, a ‘Home Collector’ can be requested through the app (qch.qa/appen), in addition to dialing 44920000 for this purpose.
