Charity drive for Philippines and Somalia

By whykaykay

In support of the people of Somalia and the Philippines, the Qatar Solidarity Day campaign has managed to raise QR 31 million in the span of just three hours and an additional 40 tonnes of goods worth QR 1 million.

In addition Qatar Petroleum (QP) donated QR 2 million and QNB and RasGas QR 1 million each. 

Among the other major donors were Qatar Islamic Bank (QR500,000), Al Tayseer (QR250,000), Lexus Engineering & Contracting (QR150,000), Abd-al-Razaq al-Rayis (QR100,000), Al Huda for Pilgrimage (QR50,000), Qatar Volleyball Association (QR50,000) and Fatma al-Rumaihi – Retaj (QR50,000).

The campaign will provide immediate relief to about 41,000 people in 8,200 families - in addition to non-food items, including blankets, mattresses, sleeping mats and food baskets that will last for one month. 

As part of the month-long campaign started on Tuesday, QRC, Sheikh Eid Charity, RAF Foundation and Al Asmakh Charity will receive in-kind or monetary donations.

Hi. Can you tell me where exactly this charity is located? Or any phone number I can contact them? We still have relief goods here but Philippine Embassy doesn't accept in-kinds anymore only cash donations. Raddison Blu also stopped accepting donations. Thanks.
