The Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay) has honoured Qatar Charity (QC) in recognition of its efforts in supporting Kizilay’s relief initiatives and achieving its humanitarian goals, and in appreciation of the strategic partnership between the two parties.
Faisal Rashid al-Fehaida, assistant to CEO in the International Operations and Partnerships Sector at Qatar Charity, received the top honour during the celebration of K?z?lay’s 151st anniversary held in the Turkish city of Istanbul, which was attended by its president Dr Karam Kink, Minister of Health Dr Farahuddin Khoja and head of religious affairs Dr Ali Erbash.
Al-Fehaida expressed pleasure at receiving the honour and appreciated the partnership between Qatar Charity and the Turkish Red Crescent in the implementation of many relief and humanitarian projects.
“We are honoured to sign strategic agreements with the Turkish Red Crescent to implement projects, a large part of which have been allocated for the benefit of the Syrian displaced and refugees,” al-Fehaida said in a statement, emphasising that the co-operation would continue and grow during the coming period. Awards were distributed to both Turkish and foreign donors during the ceremony, and some role-model individuals were also honoured.
Qatar Charity signed a strategic memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Turkish Red Crescent in December 2016. It includes co-operation in various humanitarian fields inside and outside Turkey, focusing on emergency response, shelter, health, disaster preparedness, water, sanitation, food security and livelihoods.
Since the signing of the MoU, co-operation between the two parties has increased in the above-mentioned fields. This co-operation is also expected to continue at an accelerated rate during the coming period. Among the significant projects supported by QC in co-operation with the Turkish Red Crescent is a community centre project in a city near Istanbul. In January, an agreement was signed to support the centre for a year.
