Qatar Charity: a lifeline for those in need

Qatar Charity funds many of the educational programs for Syrian refugee children

Turkey has more than 3.6 million refugees from a number of countries, living in fear of what may next threaten their lives after fleeing their war-torn homelands. One of the most serious threats in modern times, the COVID-19 pandemic, has been knocking on the door of the overcrowded refugee camps in Turkey. Many children have been struggling to adjust to the limitations imposed by the spread of the pandemic. In an effort to provide support for Syrian refugee children and others, Qatar Charity donated $2 million for UNICEF to provide better education and protection in the country.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Sudan has seen a shortage of medical aid, leaving many without vital care. In hopes of providing help for their country, Sudanese workers in Qatar cooperated with Qatar Charity to send medical aid worth QR2 million. The plane transporting the aid was received on 22 of June by Dr. Akram Ali Al-Toam, the Federal Minister of Health, and included protective gear and medical materials for the medical staff working on the Sudanese COVID-19 frontline.
