Qatar University students distribute winter-kits to workers
Doha: The students of Social Work course at Qatar University distributed winter-kits and other aid to workers under a Qatar Charity’s Local Winter Aids Programme, along with its International Winter Campaign.
The students prepared winter bags with the necessary supplies and helped distribute to the workers.
The programme aims at achieving the goals of Humanitarian Partnership Office, at Student Activities headquarters of Qatar University to lay foundations of humanitarian solidarity values
The winter campaign launched by Qatar Charity at the beginning of the season is considered as a part of community contributions that Qatar Charity strives to provide in order to lay the foundations of social solidarity values.
Qatar Charity believes that the protection of workers’ rights and their safety are important elements of the system of institutional values that works to make a positive difference in the lives of these workers, which will benefit to maintain safety and security in the community as well. Workers’ Assistance Programmes are core programs of Qatar Charity, whether they are cleaners, construction and farm workers, guards or others. The donations and contributions are received from companies, hotels and schools to provide support to workers in Qatar throughout the year, not only in winter.
It is worth mentioning that last year Qatar Charity has partnered with humanitarian and charitable organizations, in cooperation with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment to provide winter bags to single workers, in addition to providing first aid kit and conducting their medical tests.
Fareed Khaleel Al Siddieqy, Director of Projects and Local Centers, at Qatar Charity, said: now we reap the benefits of Humanitarian Partnership Office, established recently at Qatar University to enhance voluntary work, unlock the creative thinking potential of the university youth and take the initiative to design and implement realistic programs, which accommodate the potential and turn it into practical outputs in order to serve Qatari Community. Khaleel Al Siddieqy thanked the student of Social Work course at Qatar University for their good management of the project and adherence to the regulations and laws that govern and organise the work.
