Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble praised Qatar’s support for his country, applauding Qatar Charity (QC) for implementing qualitative developmental projects in Somalia.
The prime minister made the comments during the inauguration of a multi-service centre and a charity bakery by QC in Baidoa in the southwestern Bay region of
Somalia.
The centre is the first of its kind in the region, which provides various educational, social and developmental services to the people. The project, valued at more than QR1.4 million, is expected to benefit the people of Baidoa.
The charity bakery aims to lessen the suffering of the drought-hit people by providing free bread daily to 2,000 families. The building, equipping and one-year operating cost of the project is estimated to be more than QR1.6 million.
The inaugural ceremony was attended by the Somali prime minister, President of the South West regional state of Somalia Abdiaziz Hassan Mohamed and Qatari Ambassador to Somalia HE Hassan bin Hamza Hashem, in addition to federal and state government officials, local dignitaries and a team from QC’s office in Somalia.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Somali PM said, “I am delighted to inaugurate this service project, which covers several important domains such as health, culture, education and water, extending assistance to those in need, especially orphans.”
“I have witnessed many projects implemented by Qatar Charity in the country,” added the prime minister, thanking QC for the continued support for the Somali people, and the government and people of Qatar for always standing with the people in Somalia.
Ambassador Hashem said, “Qatar always seeks to help the Somali brothers through sustainable projects, as these projects provide job opportunities for the unemployed to ensure stability and rebuild various institutions, so that Somalia can enjoy security, stability and prosperity.”
“Qatar Charity is a strategic partner of Somalia in all service and development areas,” said the Minister of Higher Education Abdullah Abu Bakr at the opening ceremony, thanking QC and the government and people of Qatar.
Abdiaziz Hassan Mohamed said, “This service project is a qualitative leap for the population of the region and was desperately needed by them.” He also added that his administration would facilitate all means for benefactors to carry out the qualitative projects in the state.
Addressing the ceremony, director of QC’s Somalia office said, “We are happy with the opening of this project, which was one day a distant dream, but thanks to the benefactors in Qatar, it has turned into a tangible reality.”
Qatar Charity has implemented many developmental projects in Somalia, as the number of multi-service centres in the last two years has become nine.
