Qatar Charity (QC) has organized many collective Iftars for orphans under its sponsorship and distributed food baskets to them and their families in Gaza for the holy month of Ramadan.

The implementation of the Iftar project and the distribution of food baskets come as part of Qatar Charitys "Ramadan, the Gift of Giving" campaign for this year.

Qatar Charity has so far organized six Iftars for orphans and their families across the Gaza Strip, Palestine, benefiting 2,300 orphans. These Iftars also included recreational activities, toys, and gifts to bring joy to orphans.

Qatar Charitys office in the Gaza Strip has already implemented a project to provide food baskets, through direct shopping, for orphans and families in need, as part of the Iftar project to contribute to alleviating the economic and social pressures on 5,866 families of orphans, the poor and people with special needs sponsored by Qatar Charity.

The Director of Qatar Charitys office in the Gaza Strip, Eng. Mohammed Abu Haloub, said the cost of the Iftar Project, which include the distribution of coupons and collective Iftars for orphans and their families, amounted to 990,000 riyals.

The number of those sponsored by Qatar Charity in the Gaza Strip exceeds 15,000 persons, who receive cash and in-kind assistance on a regular basis. Qatar Charity also continues to implement development projects there.

Besides Gaza, Qatar Charitys office in Khartoum distributed 600 food baskets to orphans under its sponsorship in the River Nile State of Sudan. Qatar Charity will also distribute 1000 food baskets to orphans whom it sponsors in the Khartoum State.

The number of those sponsored by Qatar Charity in Sudan reaches 13,420, including 12,094 orphans.
