Omani sweets were shipped to Qatar in large quantities and distributed at Souq Waqif Doha for free as a token of solidarity and as part of Eid Al Fitr gifts from Omanis to Qataris amidst the ongoing GCC crisis. 

Young men from Oman delivered large packets of traditional Omani sweets and flowers as they were then joined by members of the Qatar Voluntary Centre who helped them distribute the packets to the visitors of Souq Waqif after iftar for free before the Eid holidays. The initiative was promoted on Twitter under the hashtag 'Qatar, Oman, our Eid is one'. The hashtag was actively flowing with messages of appreciation and gratefulness from Qataris to their Omani brothers and sisters welcoming them to Qatar and stressing that these gestures were not foreign to the benevolent Omani people.
