In supporting needy children and providing an appropriate educational environment, Qatar Charity (QC), with the assistance of philanthropists in Qatar, distributed school supplies to more than 500 sponsored students in Bangladesh.
Students from one of QC's orphanage care centres in Bangladesh from various educational levels received school bags, school uniforms and supplies of school stationery.

This step was welcomed by the local authorities, and the orphans were the beneficiaries.
On this occasion, Hussain Mohamed Joki, a local government official in Ramray Upazila district, said: "Qatar Charity has been working for the benefit of needy children for a long time. It is a wonderful intervention in the field of education. With this step, all the needs of orphaned and poor children have been provided.
"I hope that these efforts will continue and that the philanthropists in Qatar will continue to extend their hands to the vulnerable families in Bangladesh."
Student Purna Akhtar said, "I am an orphan and it was impossible for my mother to afford the study expenses without the support of Qatar Charity. My family is very grateful to the donors who made the impossible possible and provided me with all my needs at school. Thank you to all of them."
Bashir Ahmed, a sixth-grade student, said: "I lost my father at the age of five, then I was accepted into this center and since then I have received all the support from
Qatar Charity."
As for Bushra, a ninth-grade student: "It was difficult to continue my studies without the support of Qatar Charity, which provided us with all kinds of support to provide comfort to poor students like us."
