Qatar Charity (QC) has launched the ‘Food Basket for Workers’ campaign to support those working in farms, open spaces and construction field in gratitude and recognition of their services to the country.
The campaign comes within the framework of social solidarity programmes aimed at developing the spirit of compassion and harmony among the members of society, meeting the needs of the people and strengthening the links between the different strata of society.
“The campaign will target 1,000 workers across the country,” said Ali al-Gharib, executive director of QC’s executive management for local operations.
The new campaign is complementary to the ‘Winter of Workers’ campaign launched in the malls and commercial places at the beginning of the season.
Al-Gharib pointed out that QC has started promoting the Food Basket for Workers through a number of marketing campaigns organised in Hyatt Plaza and Ezdan Mall.
QC continues to mobilise support for the campaign at Ezdan Mall on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, where collectors are available to receive donations from citizens and residents.
“The QC’s efforts in this regard are contributions to the efforts of government agencies focusing on the interest of workers and the different segments of society,” al-Gharib said in a statement.
Al-Gharib thanked the management of these commercial complexes for their co-operation and assistance to implement QC’s programmes and activities within the framework of the social responsibility of national institutions and strengthening the humanitarian, developmental and relief action within the country.
Donations can be made to the ‘Food Basket for Workers’ campaign through QC’s website (qcharity.org) and App. Donations can also be made at the QC headquarters, branches and collection points located in commercial complexes as well as through the hotline (44667711).
Earlier, QC distributed dust masks to a number of workers, aiming to mitigate the impact of the sandstorms.
