In co-operation with Humanitarian Relief Foundation, Qatar Charity (QC) implemented a relief project for the displaced people of Mosul in Iraq to reduce their financial burden and provide them with their basic needs.

QC aims to stand by the Iraqis, alleviate their suffering and provide them with the necessary supplies under the difficult conditions they are going through.

Mohamed Alkaabi, QC's director, Relief Department, said, “We provided this aid due to the difficult conditions in Mosul and the displacement of a large number of its families to the neighbouring governorates. They live in random camps that are not well equipped and suffer from a severe shortage of basic needs of water, food, medicine and blankets, which required our rapid and immediate assistance”.

Alkaabi added that the aid included food and non-food items at a cost of QR1mn, benefiting more than 21.000 people. The aid was distributed in the camps of Nergzliya, Qaimawa, Khazar, Hassan Sham, Laylan, Arbat and Erbil.

QC had launched “Save the People of Mosul” campaign to provide humanitarian relief for the displaced people of Mosul and established a fully quipped camp.

Benefactors have many ways to help and support the displaced people of Mosul by donating through the following: Barwa Bank account number QA39BRWA000000000200000007489, or by sending “HI” SMS (Vodafone and Ooredoo); donating QR 500 at number 92428, QR 100 at number 92642, and QR 50 at number 92632.

People can also donate through the QC headquarter, its branches inside the country, its collection outlets in the shopping malls or through its website and hotline 44667711.

In conjunction with launching “Save the People of Mosul” campaign, QC implemented a project to build a camp of 100 fully equipped tents and health facilities for the displaced people.

During the last winter, QC in cooperation with the Islamic Propagation Organisation and Humanitarian Relief Foundation sent a humanitarian aid convoy to provide the winter needs for displaced people of Mosul, benefiting 25,000 people. The aid convoy included blankets, bedclothes, food and other humanitarian requirements that would alleviate the suffering of tens of thousands who have found themselves forced to leave their houses.

Since the beginning of the crisis, QC has provided an emergency and urgent relief assistance to the people of Mosul, including food and medicine, benefiting 15,000 people.
