Qatar Charity (QC) in its best endeavours to help orphans, disabled, Islamic preachers (Do’at), and poor families in Albania distributed 26 income generating material comprising agricultural tools, shops, cattle, apiaries, and a sewing workshop.
QC aims to participate in providing a stable source of income and helping in employment creation for people of the beneficiary areas that suffer from poor economic conditions and enforce their people to immigrate to large cities.
Erion Veliaj, Mayor of Tirana, praised efforts of QC to develop targeted areas in Albania by carrying out many projects that help in reducing affects of difficult humanitarian conditions. He pointed out that Albanian people are accustomed to generosity and philanthropy of the people of Qatar due to development and humanitarian projects of QC, which benefited various regions of Albania.
He thanked people of Qatar, who are always rushing to help us in any circumstances which reflects deep humanitarian feelings enjoyed by the people of Qatar.
The beneficiaries in turn expressed their gratitude to the people of Qatar, who give them preference over themselves. Qataris haven’t forgotten the Albanians despite the geographical distance. The projects of QC generate a sense of security after the beneficiaries were about to leave their villages and migrate to other cities in search of a job to earn a living. At the end of the speech, they thanked the philanthropist of Qatar, the land of good, and QC for its projects and initiatives that contribute to improving the conditions of the poor and the needy.
For his part, Shawqi Abu Saif, Director of QC office in Albania, said these projects leave a great impact on the residents of the targeted areas and again cultivate their hope. Let alone hope, these projects help in raising the level of development, education, economic empowerment, and family stability. He stressed that the doors of the Qatar Charity Office have been and will remain open to those in need and adopt their projects when the office is assured of their proved fruitfulness.
The money of benefactors from Qatar has provided a decent living for many Albanians, especially the orphans and widows.
It is worth noting that QC recently launched second phase of Requirements, Ehtiajat, project in which it distributed winter requirements to orphans. They benefited from blankets, winter clothes, school bags and stationery. QC has distributed 1000 blankets to 500 beneficiaries with an average of two blankets per person, winter clothes to 200 orphan and other students, and school bags and stationery to 150 orphans. Also, the Qatari Center for Languages and Computer provided educational services to more than 2,000 students a year, as well as the efforts of the Qatari School in Tirana, which is ranked among the best schools in the capital city, Tirana.
