As part of its social commitment towards the workers on campus, College of the North Atlantic – Qatar collaborated with Qatar Charity to distribute 350 Iftar meals. This activity aims to reach workers in different campus divisions such as security, cleaning, technical, fire and safety, civil and more.
In line with the COVID-19 restrictions, meal boxes were packed and loaded onto Qatar’s Charity decontaminated delivery van. Workers received their meals directly from the van while respecting social distancing and corona virus prevention measures.
Mr. Kuwari thanked CNA-Q for choosing Qatar Charity as a partner in humanitarian actions and said: “Qatar Charity is keen on collaborating with all sectors, governmental or educational entities, in order to strengthen the values that we believe in and seek to spread in society. We strive to achieve human dignity and community development for the sake of our Nation and the society’s well-being.”
Mr. Yousuf bin Ahmed Al Kuwari, CEO of Qatar Charity praised CNA-Q’s initiative guided by the core values of this educational institute that thrive on community service and solidarity.
Dr. Salem Al-Naemi, CNA-Q’s President said: “Ramadan is the time to be selfless and understand there is no way we can overcome difficulties without showing grace to others. While many of us gather at home to share Ramadan Iftars, for many shift workers it is not that simple to break their fast. We wanted to show CNA-Q’s workers appreciation to all the hard work and efforts they put into their jobs even during fasting hours. We also extend our appreciation to Qatar Charity and the volunteers who made this event possible.”
