On the first day of the holy month of Ramadan, Qatar Charity (QC), started the implementation of its projects in 30 countries worldwide as part of its “Ramadan, the Gift of Giving” campaign.





QC has launched many Iftar projects and distributed food baskets in the presence of ministers and local officials and ambassadors of Qatar to some of the targeted countries.

In Somalia, QC has begun the Iftar project, which includes ready-to-eat-meals, on the first day of Ramadan, for drought-affected families and some of those sponsored by Qatar Charity in the country.

It is expected that 310,620 ready-to-eat Iftar meals would be distributed in different places of the country throughout the holy month of Ramadan.

The Somali officials participated in launching an Iftar programme at the Mogadishu University for 200 university students sponsored by Qatar Charity.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Natural Disaster Management, Hamza Said Hamza expressed his pleasure at launching the project.

On the first day of Ramadan, QC distributed food basket to the poor and the needy people in Nigeria. Its office in Ghana organised the Iftar tables in six mosques, benefiting nearly 1,255 fasting persons.

In light of the problematic conditions facing the Gaza Strip in Palestine, QC office started providing food baskets for orphans and families in need.

The project will contribute to alleviating the economic and social pressures on 5,866 families (35,200 persons) of orphans, the poor and people with special needs sponsored by QC in Gaza.

  The basic food items will be sufficient for families for around half a month.



The project also includes six mass Iftar tables for orphans and their families.
