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.

Ramadan charity and humanitarian campaigns

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.

Ramadan Campaign 2019: ‘A Call for Mercy’

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.
