The Qatar Red Crescent (QRC) Ladies Forum will organise a women-only charity event - Charitable Ghabga - next Friday at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha.

The proceeds of the event will go to QRC’s poor family empowerment programme, which supports 1,500 families in Qatar.

Ghabga, a Qatari tradition related to Ramadan, will feature a charity Iftar/Sohour and a fashion show, proceeds of which would be given to charity. A Bentley will also be offered in the auction.

Expected to attract the elite, the event will feature designers from top fashion brands in the Gulf region.

Noura al-Dossari, chairwoman, QRC Ladies Forum, said that this was the first event to be organised by the forum during Ramadan.

“It is a social tradition in the Gulf countries to hold group Ghabgas during Ramadan, where friends and relatives gather and socialise. Young men have their own gatherings, men have their own gatherings, and women have their own gatherings. In observance of this good tradition, the forum adopted the idea of the event, to bring women together to promote QRC’s humanitarian activities,” she said.
