As part of its winter campaign ‘Warmth and Peace”, Qatar Charity continues distributing winter aid to the families of orphans and poor households in Kyrgyzstan and Palestine, aiming to meet their basic winter needs and alleviate their suffering.

In Kyrgyzstan, Qatar Charity’s office provided winter clothes to orphans in Osh Region via 509 vouchers, in coordination with the Ministry of Social Development and Osh city.

Officials at the Ministry of Social Development thanked the donors in Qatar and Qatar Charity for delivering the aid to meet the essential needs of the Kyrgyz beneficiaries, especially in a time when the continued coronavirus pandemic has increased the burden on the vulnerable families.


The beneficiary families expressed delight with the aid they were in need to keep their children warm in winter, especially when the temperature hits the lowest level.



Besides, Qatar Charity’s office in Palestine distributed winter supplies, in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Development, benefiting 479 poor families from various governorates of the Gaza Strip.


The winter supplies included nylon roof covers to stop the rainwater flow inside the homes of the beneficiaries in winter, in addition to the blankets.


According to Luay Al-Madhoun, director of the Social Development Minister’s office, this relief project contributed to meeting the essential needs of the populations in the Gaza Strip in light of poverty and unemployment.


He added that this project contributed to providing protection for the poor families from the extreme cold and rainwater infiltration into their homes, in addition to lessening their economic pressures.

The beneficiaries expressed their happiness at receiving this assistance, which provided them and their families with warmth. Ilham Al-Muqid, a beneficiary, said now her children can sleep peacefully, while Muti` Al-Taramsi indicated that the Qatari aid provided a peaceful sleep for his children at night. He added that his house is seasonally subjected to drowning as a result of rainwater flowing into the house.
