QRCS delivers food aid to laborers in Qatar

By QLNews

Under its Stand Together program, the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has been conducting various activities to support the wellbeing of expatriate workers in Qatar.

The program seeks to advance harmony and solidarity among different segments of society.

Recently, QRCS distributed food parcels to several laborers to help meet their basic food requirements.

The process of distribution was carried out in accordance with all COVID-19 preventive measures as recommended by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).

This activity was rolled out with funding from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Humanitarian Funds (INSANIA).

Additionally, with a donation from the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), QRCS distributed 27 tonnes of dates amongst 20,000 farm workers in Mesaieed, Al Wakra, Al Wukair, Al Khor, and Ras Laffan, as well as to construction workers of the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) in Doha.

Executive Director of Volunteering and Local Development Division at QRCS, Muna Fadel Al Sulaiti commented, “Expatriate workers are always a top priority for our local operations. We focus on them even more during the holy month of Ramadan, Eid Al-Fitr, and Eid Al-Adha. Such annual religious occasions bring with them the spiritualities of mercy, benevolence, and compassion among the rich and the poor.”

“Amid the negative impact of COVID-19 on the lower social strata, it is our duty to work harder these days to reach out to the underserved communities,” she added.

The QRCS official lauded the productive collaboration with INSANIA, MME, and Ashghal as “a model to follow in humanitarian partnership to serve those in need, which would have positive implications for their everyday life and make them feel safe and taken care of here in Qatar.”

Stand Together is a social development initiative to ensure expatriate workers' welfare through diverse forms of assistance, such as health education, food aid, and hygiene kits.

The program ambitions to improve the living conditions of workers in Qatar and achieve social integration.
