“I pay attention to Qatar Charity’s social and development projects in Somalia since the opening of its office in the country, and I believe that 70% of the sponsored Somali orphans are those sponsored by Qatar Charity,” said Dr Abdul Razzaq Ahmed Dilmer, former president of Benadir University, noting the various other projects implemented by QC in Somalia.
Qatar Charity recently opened educational and development projects in the Somali city of Kismayo, in Jubaland state.
The first project is a multi-service centre that includes a school, a mosque, a green square, a surface well, a clinic, a centre for memorising the Holy Qur’an and shops.
The second project consists of houses for the poor that includes 24 housing units and a mosque.
In November, QC inaugurated a multi-service centre and a charity bakery in Baidoa in the southwestern Bay region of Somalia.
The centre is the first of its kind in the region, which provides various educational, social and developmental services to the people. The project is expected to benefit the people of Baidoa, the statement adds.
The charity bakery aims to lessen the suffering of the drought-hit people by providing free bread to 2,000 families daily.
