A delegation from Qatar Charity (QC) laid the foundation stone for Sheikh Abdullah Al Dabbagh Centre for Orphan Care in Tanzania.
Al-Dabbagh, who passed away on May 23, 2023, was among Qatar Charity’s founders and a former chairman of its board of directors.
The ceremony was attended by Qatar’s ambassador to Tanzania Fahad Rashid al-Marekhi, adviser to the QC chief executive Jassim Abdullah al-Jassim, and Ali Abdullah al-Dabbagh, in addition to several local dignitaries.
Al-Marekhi expressed his delight in participating in laying the foundation stone for Sheikh Abdullah Al Dabbagh Centre for Orphan Care, indicating that it will be a shining beacon in the paths of goodness.
He noted that this centre will be a significant factor in building and caring for the orphans, enabling them to become a source of goodness for their country, families, and community.
"It is a great honour to participate in laying the foundation stone for this charitable complex and educational institution, which is dedicated to the orphan care,” al-Jassim said. "We look forward to making this complex a safe haven and a place filled with love and care for orphans.”
“Here, every child who has lost a parent can receive comprehensive care, including housing, education, and healthcare, in addition to engaging in various cultural and sports activities,” he added.
The complex will provide accommodation, education, and healthcare services for orphans.
It will also offer health, education, and water services to the local community adjacent to the complex.
The QR4.5mn project is expected to directly benefit more than 320 orphans.
