The ‘Feed a Fasting Person’ project aimed at targeting those at-risk outside Qatari borders aims to feed and benefit an estimated 425 Thousand people through the distribution of food baskets and iftar meals.
The project aims to target primarily vulnerable portions of society such as the elderly, orphans, those with special needs, and refugees. The project targets populations worldwide with distribution centers in Turkey, Syria, and Sudan to name a few.
Qatar Charity, in coordination with municipal governments in Turkey that house a large Syrian refugee population, has started delivering ready-to-eat Iftar meals. It is expected that over 100,000 fasting persons will receive meals in Turkey, extending to both Turkish residents and Syrian refugees residing in Turkey.
The ‘Feed a Fasting Person’ project will also include the distribution of food baskets to thousands of beneficiaries inside Syria that have been adversely affected by the decade-long civil war.
In Sudan, the distribution of food items has also begun with over 2000 residents of rural Omdurman city benefiting. Outside of the city, some 24,475 people throughout Sudan are expected to benefit from food baskets.
Lastly, Qatar Charity has taken into consideration public safety and precautionary measures in the implementation of its Ramadan projects to fight the coronavirus, as it prepares and packs meals in the municipal kitchens to ensure that they will remain safe and clean.
