Family Consulting Centre (Wifaq) of the Qatar Foundation for Social Action, will launch Sunday an information campaign through social media platforms on the occasion of celebrating Family Day in Qatar, which falls on April 15 of each year.
The campaign features the topic "Family dialogue in light of contemporary challenges and changes."
The campaign, which will last until April 20, includes a variety of awareness materials, including: video flashes, graphic designs, promotional advertisements and motion graphics, which have been produced and designed in an attractive and purposeful manner to reach the largest possible audience.
Family Consulting Centre (Wifaq) is keen to highlight the importance of dialogue within the family as one of the necessities of contemporary social life, and one of the main pillars in achieving coherence and cohesion between members of the family pattern, as it represents the most prominent and effective way to enable family members to exchange views, information, acquiring knowledge, building and forming cultures, expressing their different inclinations and feelings, as well as evaluating their behaviors and modifying and correcting their misconceptions, in a manner that ensures their keeping with the values and principles of the family and society, and enables them to positively deal with challenges and crises.

Among the current examples of challenges facing the family, the new coronavirus, and its negative impact on family security and stability, as a result of the accelerating pace of the global spread of the virus, and the surrounding news, information and false rumors that are broadcast around the clock, especially through social media platforms, which constitutes a great burden weighs on the family, especially parents, and from this, the Wifaq Centre seeks through this campaign to reinforce and support the importance of the role played by family dialogue in the cohesion and interdependence of the family, especially in light of crises.
The idea of devoting a special day for the family emerged in Qatar on the sidelines of the International Family Conference hosted by Qatar and organised by the Supreme Council for Family Affairs in 2004 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the International Year of the Family, where Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development called for the need to celebrate Family Day. The Council proposed April 15 of each year to celebrate this day, and through the care and support of the family in all its categories, devoting one day each year to celebrate it, highlighting its role, and indicating the gains that it has obtained. It was approved in the ordinary meeting No 20 of 2010 on June 2, 2010.
