More than 100 orphaned children living in Qatar were able to enjoy a special Iftar organised for them by Qatar Airways, as part of the Holy Month of Ramadan celebrations.
The event, organised by Qatar Airways’ Doha Sales Department, in conjunction with Qatar Charity, aimed to provide the children with an unforgettable evening of entertainment and loving hospitality. The children were accompanied by family members or friends who also enjoyed activities such as henna drawing and face painting as well as the chance to enjoy a delicious, healthy Iftar meal.
The children enjoyed activities such as train rides, a bouncing castle and received gifts including branded Qatar Airways school bags, a cuddly toy and a brand new T-shirt. Qatar Airways Vice President Commercial Doha, Ehab Amin, said the airline always looks forward to supporting the local community through events during Ramadan.
“We plan to hold the event on an annual basis to ensure these children continue to experience these acts of generosity, charity and compassion that make Ramadan such a special time. “The Holy Month of Ramadan is a time of giving – to the community, each other and to those less fortunate than ourselves,” Amin said.
Qatar Charity Managing Director Support Centres and Affairs, Ahmed Salih Al Ali said: “The aim of holding this Iftar with enjoyable activities and wonderful hospitality was to bring happiness and joy to the orphans of Qatar,” he said. Al Ali also thanked Qatar Airways for its efforts in supporting the Qatari community and said that Qatar Charity welcomes such initiatives from key local organizations that are of benefit to the local community.
Al Ali joined Qatar Airways Regional Marketing Manager Qatar, Rana Zeidan, at the event which was held at the Regency Halls, Doha earlier this week.
