The act of giving and helping those in need is an important part of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Especially now that we're still in the middle of a pandemic, it's more important than ever to help out in any way we can. From Iftar meals to food supplies and other needs, we've rounded up some of the many initiatives set up in Qatar to help out the less fortunate. Scroll down to find out how you can help someone this Ramadan 2021.
Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better. Dedicate your donation to support and develop poor countries' education.
Our very own Mr. Q, Khalifa Al Haroon, is working with Education Above All to help raise funds to educate kids. You can help through this link: donate.educationaboveall.org/khalifalharoon
Silatech is running its 2nd Annual Ramadan Fundraiser Campaign titled “Spare Them From Asking.” This campaign will help aspiring youth, unemployed young men and women, including those in dire need of support as a result of devastating job losses around the globe culminating from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Al Meera launched the Ramadan Crescent Festival in collaboration with Qatar Red Crescent, an initiative to support families in need. Be part of this charity by buying from the participating brands in one of Al Meera's branches.
For their Ramadan "Shop & Donate" initiative, Lulu is supporting both Qatar Charity and Qatar Red Crescent Society.

The Ramadan Donation campaign with Qatar Red Crescent includes a variety of basic foodstuffs for Ramadan, in order to benefit the people in need.
Qatar Charity's Tayf program accepts in-kind donations such as clothes, shoes, children's toys, and more. You can drop them off at any Tayf donation boxes in Qatar. You can find the locations here: https://www.qcharity.org/en/qa
Ooredoo is encouraging its loyalty program members to support worthwhile causes this Ramadan with a Points Donation campaign. Members of Nojoom – Ooredoo’s popular loyalty program – can donate their Nojoom Points to the program’s charity partners to help them continue their invaluable work in Qatar’s communities. Charity partners members can choose from include Qatar Charity, Qatar Red Crescent, Education Above All, Silatech, and Qatar Cancer Society.
This Ramadan, Wa'hab partnered with Food Works Qatar to offer Iftar boxes to those in need. You can sponsor Iftar meals, each costing QR 15 (consisting of chicken biriyani, snacks, fruits, dates, water, and juice) by paying directly to Royal Taste Restaurant’s bank account through online transfer. Check the full details here: Iftar Charity Box
You can donate meals and food baskets to those fasting and in need through Qatar Charity on the Talabat app. You can also choose to donate blankets, school fees, health supplies, and more.
In the spirit of the month of giving, every time you order from the Chefs of Qatar Curated Menus, a part of the proceeds is donated to Qatar Charity to help those most in need.
For the second year in a row, Vodafone Qatar’s Ramadan digital engagement platform will encourage everyone in the country to be part of its charitable giving campaign during the holy month.
In the spirit of giving back and to inspire all communities to participate, Vodafone Qatar has partnered with Qatar Charity to fully support their Ramadan program “Iftar from home to home”. This is the first such program managed by Qatar Charity that sees Qatari producing families create home-cooked iftar meals that are then distributed by Qatar Charity to low-income families directly to their homes. Every 100 points collected by playing on the platform are equivalent to an iftar meal donation, so the more people play, the faster Vodafone gets to its donation goal of 6000 meals.
