Charity and donations are something the world can never have enough of; given all the needs out there.

We understand that sometimes we get a little lost and unaware of who we can help and how we can help. The (ILQ) team has put together a list of ways in which you can give back to the community with ease and credibility in Qatar.

Note: All mentioned charitable sources are accessible all year round.
