About 1,500 families and 2,500 workers will benefit from the second edition of the food kit distribution project of the General Department of Endowments of the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf). The project will be implemented in cooperation with Hifz Al Naema Centre, a Qatari food-saving social organisation.
The launch of the initiative was announced at a press conference by Director-General of the General Department of Endowments Dr Sheikh Khalid bin Mohammed bin Ghanem Al Thani.
Dr Sheikh Khalid said the scheme is one of the “pioneering initiatives” launched by the General Department of Endowments last year with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said the project aims to deliver food baskets to needy families and workers, adding that the initiative has been launched with the support of the “endowment bank for righteousness and piety”.
For his part, Hifz Al Naema Centre Public Relations Officer Yousef bin Abdullah Al Khulaifi thanked the General Department of Endowments for implementing the project, noting that this cooperation comes for the second year under exceptional circumstances.
The project and its accompanying campaign stem from the belief of the General Department of Endowments in promoting the culture of giving and spreading the spirit of humanity among different segments of society and the participation of needy families and workers group during Ramadan.
The number of kits will vary depending upon the number of family members and provides all the requirements during the holy month.
