Qatar Charity (QC), in co-ordination with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and the authorities concerned in the country, and with support from benefactors, has continued to distribute ready-to-eat meals as part of the 'Khair Kitchens' initiative.
Qatar Charity has distributed 94,000 meals until April 7 as part of the preventive and awareness campaign to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), according to a press statement by QC.
Some 6,000 ready-to-meals are distributed daily, in the Industrial Area and Quarantine Centre in Mukaynis, with the participation of Qatar Charity volunteers and supervisors.
Several companies, including Ard Canaan, Popular Kitchens Al Rayyan, Popular Kitchens Al Wakra, Luxury Catering, Mazzraty and Ghadeer Dairy, support the initiative in addition to benefactors in Qatar.
Mohammed al-Ghamdi, assistant CEO for the Governance and Institutional Development Sector at Qatar Charity, appreciated the efforts of the supporters of the initiative and benefactors for their generous donation, hoping for more support to maximise the number of beneficiaries of the initiative.
"We offer various types of ready-to-eat meals, focusing on workers in the Mukaynis area, and hope to cover the whole area by increasing the number of workers and other areas," he said, noting that QC would continue to support workers to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Bassel Soweila, director of Operations at Ard Canaan, expressed happiness at participating in the initiative, emphasising the full commitment of kitchen workers to the conditions of prevention, hygiene and sterilisation.
Adel Abdullah, a social media figure, praised the initiative and said it contributes a lot to helping workers in light of the ongoing crisis. He also noted that they deserve support, and QC - which extends a helping hand worldwide, would spare no effort in helping those who live within the country.
Abdullah al-Anazi, a social media influencer, expressed thanks and appreciation for the benevolent people of Qatar and all those who contributed to the initiative, applauding the efforts of Qatar Charity in this crisis and calling on everyone to join the initiative and stay at home to limit the spread of Covid-19 and minimise infections.
Hassan al-Saie, another social media influencer, expressed happiness at participating in the initiative, praising the preventive and health measures taken by the kitchen.
“This is a commendable effort by Qatar Charity, its partners and volunteers who work hard to help workers,” al-Saie added.
