A Qtel convoy of 20 specially-converted Land Cruisers will travel across Qatar during the holy month of Ramadan, bringing help to needy families. The initiative, a joint effort of Qtel and the Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah al-Thani Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF), has been designed to ensure that everyone has full support during this period. The cars will visit homes and families designated by the RAF and deliver special coupons which can be exchanged for family necessities at LuLu Hypermarkets. Each visit will deliver sufficient coupons for their whole family and the aim is to reach out to every city and village in Qatar, a release said. A total of 1,300 families have been identified for the programme. Qtel has donated QR1.3mn to support the programme, in addition to providing volunteers to help distribute the vouchers. The fleet of Land Cruisers has been customised to ensure they can reach families in off-road and challenging locations. Qtel said it was supporting the convoy programme on an annual basis, as part of its wider corporate social responsibility strategy, “For Qatar, Hand in Hand”. During Ramadan, it said it was supporting a wide range of charitable initiatives, including offering a special opportunity for Nojoom members to donate the points to Qatar Charity as well as a range of special community activities.
