The Qatar Red Crescent (QRCS) has received QR250,000 in funding from the Qatar Vinyl Company Ltd (QVC) in support of the former’s annual Ramadan Iftar programme in the Industrial Area.
In co-ordination with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment’s General Cleanliness Department, QRCS volunteers hold a daily group Iftar banquet for cleaning workers.
Launched six years ago, last year’s project provided 9,000 meals over 30 days.
The total number of meals served over Ramadan is 10,200, or 340 meals per day, with logistic support from Brilliance Cleaning and Hospitality.
Noura al-Dosari, the executive director of the QRCS Volunteering and Local Development Division, thanked the QVC for its initiative to sponsor the programme, which is in line with the principle of corporate social responsibility.
“For the sixth Ramadan in a row, Doha municipality workers have received healthy food from the QRCS. It is a noble humanitarian message that embodies the solidarity and spirituality of the holy month of Ramadan and reflects the QRCS’s slogan of ‘Saving Lives and Preserving Dignity’,” al-Dosari noted.
“This year, the children of volunteers were invited to share the virtue of volunteering and benevolence at an early age,” she added.
These activities are part of the QRCS’s Ramadan campaign for 1438 AH, which involves QR85mn worth of humanitarian and development projects.
This figure includes international projects in 15 countries at a total cost of QR65mn, as well as health, social, qualification and development projects in Qatar at a value exceeding QR19mn.
