Qatar Charity (QC) has decided to automatically renew the monthly aid disbursement to all of its registered beneficiaries, whose entitlements are due to expire soon, for the next three months without the need to appear in person.
The move is aimed at facilitating the provision of monthly aid to beneficiaries, including hundreds of families with limited income, widows and divorced women, within the country, QC has said in a statement.
It is part of the precautionary measures taken by Qatar, asking everyone to stay at home to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in the country.
This monthly assistance falls within the social welfare efforts of Qatar Charity to support low-income families within the country to improve their standards of living, especially in light of the conditions created by the coronavirus pandemic, the statement notes.
The move also comes within the framework of its responsibility towards society, in line with the directives pertaining to staying at home.
"It is worth mentioning that Qatar Charity pays great attention to the development of society in various fields in accordance with Qatar National Vision 2030, especially social welfare, by providing assistance to people with low incomes, widows, divorced women, patients and others, in addition to implementing projects and activities for families and individuals to develop their capabilities," the statement points out.
QC implements several programmes and projects for the local community that annually benefit thousands of low-income families, workers, orphans and Asian expatriate communities, aiming to promote the culture of doing good, helping those in need, and developing the skills and capabilities of participants through holding workshops and training courses under its different community development centres, it adds.
