Qatar Charity Rohama initiative aids 400 families in Niger


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) DOHA: Qatar Charity (QC) took a group of philanthropists from Qatar on a trip to Niger to provide them first hand information about the condition of poor families in rural areas under its Rohama initiative.

The delegation visited the families and attended a program in which basic foodstuffs were distributed to 400 poor families including orphans during their stay in the country.

The delegation was comprised with Nasser Al Megheiseb, head of the initiative, Rashid Al Kuwairi, Kaltham Al Ka’bi, Abdullah Albu’ineen, Mohammed Shaheen, Anas Sameer, Ubada Youssef, Nour Al Abed, Sara Al Khal, and Faisal Al Heithami.

The visit was followed by a survey conducted by a team of QC to review the deteriorating conditions of people in Niger due to lack of water, food, clothes, transportation, and the damage that happened to the houses, schools and hospitals.

The delegation visited three villages in Niger: Bankario, Quringhal and Burkodari.

They distributed food baskets to some 400 families. A basket was enough for a family for a month. The baskets included 50 kg of rice, 100 kg of fats, five liters of edible oil, five kg of sugar and three kg of milk at a cost of QR 447 per basket. The team also worked on organizing competitions and entertaining programs. They also gave money to build some playgrounds for the children and their families.

The delegation also visited an educational center for orphans in Niger. They noted that entertaining programs and competitions should be organized to reduce the sufferings of the orphans and employees.

The delegation paid a visit to some income-generating projects which had been implemented by QC. Some of these projects were for the people with special needs to provide them with necessary training to launch some small projects.

Such projects included a workshop for making wires; the person with special needs trains at a workshop who have similar conditions but depend on themselves for meeting their needs.

Rohama projects meant helping the beneficiaries become financially independent through implementing suitable projects for the people such as mills, farms and shops”.
