Qatar Charity implements 290 projects in  Somalia till June


Qatar Charity (QC) has implemented 290 development projects in the Somali Republic with support from the Qatari people during the first half of this year at a cost of QR35m.

The projects included drilling wells, building educational and health facilities, multi-service centres, income-generating projects and social sponsorships, as well as emergency relief projects, Qatar Charity said in a press release yesterday.

It said that the cost of projects executed during the first six months of this year amounted to about QR35m, while its office in Mogadishu is pursuing implementation of 610 projects in the second half of this year at a cost of QR24m.

QC said that it was one of the first humanitarian organizations dedicated to promoting development in the country and contributing to the creation of radical solutions to the problems of drought and meeting urgent needs in areas hit by successive humanitarian disasters from drought, desertification and malnutrition.

QC work in Somalia dates back to the 1990s, when it launched a project to care for children without parents, widows and students, through the opening of a representative office in Mogadishu in late 2007 and a field office since 2010.

Through its Somalia office, QC has strategic partnerships with international organisations such as the United Nations Children’s Fund, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Medical Corps, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Global One Organization.

Qatar Charity confirmed that these partnerships resulted in the implementation of a number of large projects in the period between the beginning of 2009 and mid of this year, where the number of beneficiaries reached more than 200,000 people .
