Two of Qatar’s largest charities are aiming to raise an ambitious amount of money this Ramadan to benefit families in need both here at home and overseas.
Qatar Red Crescent has announced that it plans to collect some $12.3 million (QR45 million) over the next month to fund 57 projects in 21 countries.
Inside of Qatar, that money will go toward feeding people at iftaar tents, providing free medical services at certain mosques after Taraweeh prayers, hosting lectures and gifting clothes to needy families during Eid.
The charity also hopes to provide medical and humanitarian relief to some 4 million people in 14 Asian and African countries, Saleh bin Ali Al Muhannadi, QRC’s secretary general, said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Qatar Charity has said it plans to feed some 174,000 low-income expats this month through 10 iftaar tents set up around Qatar.
It will also host a project to distribute meals to drivers on Qatar’s streets and provide iftaar meals to low-income families for 30 days. “Ramadan supplies” will also be supplied 1,000 low-income families in residential areas in the country.
