The Ministry of Endowments (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs, through its General Administration of Endowments, has launched the "Iftar Fasting" campaign for Ramadan. The campaign targets to provide daily iftar meals to more than 24,000 fasting individuals across Qatar. 

In a press conference, the General Administration revealed plans to provide 700,000 meals for breaking the fast throughout Ramadan, utilizing twenty distribution locations nationwide, including five designated meal distribution centers. Director General of the General Department of Endowments, Sheikh Khalid bin Mohammed bin Ghanem Al Thani emphasized the significance of the iftar project as a community initiative fostering solidarity among members of society. He noted the substantial demand for the initiative, leading to an expansion in distribution sites and beneficiary numbers.

Assistant Director General of the General Department of Endowments, Muhammad bin Yaqoub Al-Ali detailed the setup of iftar locations, which include equipped tents for communal dining and designated areas for meal distribution. The campaign falls under the Endowment Bank for righteousness and piety, aiming to promote social solidarity, fulfill endowment conditions, assist the needy in fulfilling their fasting obligations, and support workers facing challenges in preparing their own meals.

 The tents are at Ain Khaled (Thursday and Friday Market), Al-Sailiya (New Central Market), Industrial Area (Eid Musalla, Street 23 Al-Attiyah) Industrial Zone Street 38, Al-Rayyan (Eid Prayer Hall), Al Montazah, Umm Salal Mohamed, Al-Wakrah (opposite the old Al-Wakrah Market), Al-Khor (Othman Mosque), Bin Omran (Eid Prayer Hall), Al-Aziziyah (Eid Prayer Hall), Souq Al-Ali, Al-Sulaimi ( North Farms Area), Muraikh, next to Mosque No. (879) and Al Thumama.


Meals will be distributed at Old Airport (behind Family Shopping Centre), Umm Ghuwailina (Council Cooperation Traffic Signals), Bin Mahmoud (Jaidah Bridge), Souq Al Faleh (near Al-Qubab Mosque) and Salwa Road (Azab Abu Nakhla Complex).
