Qatar Charity (QC) recently received a donation from businesspersons belonging to the Pakistani community living in Qatar, in the presence of the Pakistan Welfare Forum’s (PWF) members, to support the Pakistani community’s fund dedicated to its low-income families and people, especially in the areas of education and health.
The fund was allocated by QC for the Pakistani community in Qatar during the Holy Month of Ramadan last year.
The first joint event was carried out by organising a charity dinner during Ramadan, which was attended by more than 300 people from the community. Several officials of the Pakistani embassy, prominent businesspersons and philanthropists from the Pakistani community participated in the event.
Ali al Gharib, director of Programs and Public Relations Department at QC, received donations from the Pakistani businesspersons in the presence of Ahmed Hussein, president of the Pakistan Welfare Forum and a number of its members.
Gharib thanked to the forum members, the Pakistani community, the Pakistani businesspersons and all the benefactors who contributed to the provision of the donation, hoping that other communities will follow suit in organising charity events to support low-income families and people in Qatar.
He added that QC has already allocated funds to support the members of the communities within the country. “Qatar Charity is always keen to cooperate in this regard with other communities residing in Qatar in order to support the low-income segments of society,” he said.
Gharib also pointed out that QC organises many events and programmes annually to support workers within the country and holds a number of activities for the benefit of various communities in Qatar, especially the Asian communities.
He also noted that in 2004 QC’s community development centre, the Friends Cultural Center (FCC), was established.
Ahmad Hussain thanked QC for its tremendous support and cooperation during the last one year by providing a platform for those individuals who value social responsibility and are keen to pay back to the society for uplifting the low-income segments of the communities, especially in the sectors education and health.
