The season of giving is here! Ramadan is right around the corner, and you're probably looking for ways to give back.
There are many charity and donation drives around Qatar that are specific to Ramadan or those supporting generic causes, and we're here to help you find them!
The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team has put together a list of ways to give back to the community with ease and credibility in Qatar.
Qatar Charity has launched their Ramadan campaign for 2023 under the slogan 'Leave your mark'. Head over to their website and donate to the many causes, including feeding a fasting person, providing a Ramadan basket, or even donating to cover up for missed fasting; they've even made that easy.
Wish to provide an Iftar for a fasting person in Qatar, outside Qatar or even wish to donate to the open public Iftar tents that feed fasting people in Qatar; you can easily do so by visiting the Qatar Red Crescent Society website and putting in your donation.
Donate as you shop with Lulu Hypermarket! They have collaborated with Qatar Charity, where a specific donation amount is allocated to numerous products available at Lulu. With each purchase of the item, the specified amount will be donated.
Al Meera has their annual Ramadan Box that can be purchased for QR 99 and only from Hyatt Plaza or even ordered online and delivered to a recipient of your choice.
The box includes many items, including flour, oil, jelly, nuts & more!
Are you buying Ramadan essentials? Try purchasing the Ramadan Box at QR 99 from Monoprix, which donates QR 10 to Qatar Charity with every purchase of the Ramadan Box.
The box includes many items, such as loose tea, milk powder, white sugar, oats, flour, sunflower oil & much more!
Looking for a quick and easy way to donate? Check out the 'Charity' tab on talabat, which gives you a range of charity bodies and causes to donate to with a click.
In light of Ramadan, Qatar International School is running a food drive in collaboration with Wa'hab, where they are accepting open food donations.
The items that could be donated are rice, canned food, long-life milk or milk powder, sugar, honey & lentils that can be delivered to the school premises between 26 March to 6 April 2023.
Layali Aden is offering set meals for the month of Ramadan, where you can make the purchase, and they will provide the meal to someone needy. If you would like to offer it to someone yourself, that would be possible too.
Many community groups run donation drives throughout the year and during Ramadan, which you can be a part of. One such group to check out is 'Feed a Friend', which runs donation campaigns often.
Got excess clothes that you think can be shared with those in need? Drop them at the Tayf boxes in various parts of the city, making doing your bit rather easy.
Pack your clothes (in good condition) and drop them into the box. You aren't limited to just clothes; toys, books and other essentials can be put in, too, which will then be picked up by Qatar Charity and distributed to communities around the world that need them.
The full list of container locations can be found HERE!
Doing your bit can get easier with this fridge placed outdoors in Al Hilal. This fridge is open to the public to donate food and beverages. Those in need can pick up as per their need and choice.
