*New HQ of Qatar Committee for Reconstruction of Gaza opens
HE the Chairman of Qatar's Gaza Reconstruction Committee Ambassador Mohamed al-Emadi affirmed that since the beginning of its work in the field of Gaza reconstruction in 2012, starting with the $407mn grant of His Highness the Father Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the committee made a turning point in the field of development and reconstruction, and supervised hundreds of humanitarian projects with integrated plans to provide and meet the needs of the people of Gaza in various fields.
This came in the ceremony held by Qatar Committee for Reconstruction of Gaza during the opening of its new headquarters in Gaza.
The opening ceremony was attended by a group of government figures, deputies in the legislative assembly, leaders of Palestinian factions, and representatives from international and civil society institutions.
In his speech during the ceremony, Ambassador al-Emadi praised the engineering, technical, and administrative teams as well as all the Palestinians who contributed to the implementation of the Qatari projects in the Gaza Strip, expressing his gratitude for all international organisations, in addition, to the ministries, authorities, and official and civil institutions that made great efforts to make Qatar Committee succeed and facilitated its tasks until it reached this distinguished stage.
Al-Emadi also thanked Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for allocating a 3-donum piece of land in the Ramallah governorate, in order to establish the permanent headquarters of the Qatari embassy.
Al-Emadi said that doing so is a confirmation that their work does not only cover the Gaza Strip, but also Jerusalem and the West Bank, noting that there are other projects that aim to support the resilience of the Palestinian people.
He stressed that under the supervision of the leadership and its wise policy, the projects of Qatar Committee for Reconstruction of Gaza have become a distinct model in the field of architecture and construction, as well as in providing basic needs.
He concluded his speech by affirming the genuine position of Qatar's leadership in its support of the Palestinian people.
