Ali bin Hassan al-Hammadi, secretary-general of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), met Sri Lankan ambassador Mohamed Mafaz Mohideen Tuesday to talk on the prospects for humanitarian co-operation between QRCS and the Sri Lankan Red Cross Society (SLRCS).
The discussion focused on a possible relief operation either to serve the Lankan community in Qatar or provide aid for the underserved communities in Sri Lanka.
The meeting was attended by QRCS officials Dr Fawzi Oussedik (head, International Relations and International Humanitarian Law), and Naglaa al-Hajj (head, International Development).






Mohideen said his country was experiencing a dramatic increase in Covid-19 infections and deaths amid the third wave. As a result, hospitals are over-crowded and do not have the capacity for more critical cases.
Al-Hammadi vowed to extend help to the people of Sri Lanka, through co-ordination with SLRCS, as a strategic partner of QRCS.
Special focus will be given to immediately address the gaps in medical equipment, medications, and other supplies.
This, he asserted, reflects the good relations between the two countries and QRCS’ past achievements in Sri Lanka. Its representation mission there executed numerous humanitarian operations, particularly in the water, sanitation, and hygiene sector, with hundreds of wells dug and water tanks and pumps installed.
