The Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) provides a wide range of relief and development services and helps improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilising the power of humanity inside and outside of Qatar. ‘Saving lives and preserving dignity’ is the slogan that well describes what QRCS does, especially during Ramadan.
For more information on what QRCS does to serve humanity during Ramadan, read on.
Every year, QRCS launches its annual charity and humanitarian campaign for the holy month of Ramadan. This campaign is a bridge of mercy between those with kind and benevolent hearts on the one hand, and the needy, the poor, the displaced, and the homeless on the other hand, and through this campaign, QRCS seeks to alleviate their suffering and bring a smile to their faces.
Inspired by the noble teachings of Islam and based on what QRCS stands for, this year’s campaign is titled ‘A Call for Mercy’ because mercifulness is what touches your heart when you see someone in need, makes you feel compassionate towards them, and motivates you to give as much as you can to make their life a better one.
The 2019 Ramadan campaign comprises a wide range of humanitarian operations in 22 countries, at a total value of QR 48 million. These operations include 18 Ramadan Iftar projects in 11 countries throughout Ramadan, as well as, 171 projects for up to 905,000 beneficiaries in Qatar and around the world where needed.
This Ramadan, QRCS is arranging Iftar meals, food vouchers, Zakat-ul-Fitr and eid clothing for those needy people who are fasting in countries like Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Central African Republic, Somalia, Sudan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and also Qatar.
QRCS has set up a number of Ramadan Iftar tents with a capacity of 2,133 visitors per day or 63,990 over a month, and it has been estimated these Iftar tents will benefit 129,990 fasting persons in total this Ramadan.
Locations: Two locations in Al-Wakrah, two locations in Al-Khor, Al-Aziziyah, Old Airport, Al-Hilal, Al-Mansoura, Al-Rayyan, Al-Luqta, Industrial Area, Al-Duhail, and Umm Salal Muhammed.
Iftar meals are also being distributed for the workers of remote farms, as follows: Al-Shahaniyah (500 per day, or 15,000 over a month), and Mesaieed (300 per day, or 9,000 over a month). QRCS’s volunteers also have launched an on-the-run Iftar programme, distributing snacks to drivers at the Maghreb time, to ensure safety on road. The plan covers six locations, with a total of 1,000 meals per day, or 30,000 over 30 days.
