Qatar Charity drones to deliver vaccines to world’s inaccessible areas


The charity has started delivering necessary medical aid to hard to reach areas using drones.

A Qatar Charity (QC) project to deliver Covid-19 vaccines to inaccessible areas using drones has lifted off, the organisation confirmed to Doha News.

The charity’s initiative is part of its ongoing humanitarian support and mission to provide disadvantaged people with all necessary medical supplies, including the vaccine, to protect them from the virus, the Customer Service Manager at QC, Abdulaziz Jassim Haji, added in an interview aired on Qatar TV on Monday.

Haji fell short of specifying more details on the project, including the countries in which the drones will be used.

The project has yet to take flight but plans are being drawn up, the charity confirmed to Doha News.

QC launched an emergency plan at the start of the pandemic to support local and international efforts in curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus, in a bid to alleviate the suffering of affected people, he added.

Since then, more than 2 million people have been assisted by the charity around the world. In the Gulf state, QC said it launched several campaigns to provide support for the local community. 

“We distributed several medical packages to more than 1 million and 168,000 beneficiaries. We also equipped two buildings in Industrial city to be adequate for quarantining,” Haji said.
