A delegation from the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Office of Middle East Affairs recently visited Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS).
The visitors were in Qatar for a couple of days to hold talks with different charities and humanitarian providers.
The delegation was headed by Scott Shiller, advisor for North Africa, and was received by Ali bin Hassan al Hammadi, secretary-general of QRCS, Ibrahim Abdullah al Maliki, executive-secretary, Dr Mohamed Salah Ibrahim, executive director of Relief and International Development, Abdullah Hamid al Mulla, director of Communication and Public Relations, and Dr Fawzi Oussedik, head of International Relations.
QRCS and USAID representatives discussed their respective operations and fields of work. They agreed on a unified mechanism of communication with QRCS’ headquarters in Doha and foreign offices.
Hammadi welcomed all initiatives for working together on sustainable development and field intervention projects across the Middle East. More opportunities of cooperation are seen in youth empowerment, economic empowerment, and sustainable aid, he said.
The meeting emphasised the importance of concerted efforts for the success of long-term development programmes, regionally and internationally.
According to Hammadi, a new QRCS relief and development strategy is underway for the coming five-year period.
“The projects implemented under our previous strategy, and those to be initiated under the proposed one, all were in line with the overall policies of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), as well as the guidelines of Qatar’s Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA),” he added.
