The QDB has completed the second phase of a free precast housing project in Al-Duhail area for the Ministry of Social Affairs. The houses are allocated for the elderly, orphans and people with special needs. The QDB constructed the houses on time, which demonstrated its keenness to meet the requirements of all segments of Qatar society. QDB CEO Mansour bin Ibrahim al-Mahmoud said: “QDB supports the National Strategy for social development stipulated in the Qatar National Vision 2030 and derived from the directives of HH the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani and HH the Heir Apparent Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.” Al-Mahmoud said the QDB supervised the construction of 100 villas, owned by the Ministry of Social Affairs’ Department of Housing, for people with special needs. They include 65 villas in Al-Duhail and 35 villas in other areas of Doha. He also said the QDB has ensured that the villas are built to very high standards. The project will be delivered in three phases. Al-Mahmoud said the QDB’s commitment to complete the second and last phase on time is part of the strategy framework of the government to provide decent facilities for Qatari families so that they can actively contribute in supporting and reinforcing the economic diversification. The QDB, the CEO said, is the first bank in the country that implements the project after the establishment of the engineering project department (EPD). Issa al-Hammadi, the EPD manager, said work on the first phase started on June 15 with two villas representing two models for phase two and three. Phase 3, which is the last phase, which comprises 33 villas, will be completed before December 15. Al-Hammadi said the QDB has started delivering a full range of services for the beneficiaries in this project.
