Food Provisions, Gifts for Patients Qatar Red Crescent Society's (QRCS) branch in Al-Khor is proceeding with its efforts to serve the local community in the Al-Shamal northern part of the country, with food provisions for poor families and gifts for hospitalized children. Throughout Ramadan, the branch distributed food provisions to 230 low-income families in Al-Khor and neighboring districts, to meet their needs during the holy month. Each family received food packages of rice, sugar, vegetable oil, and milk. The recipients thanked QRCS for these supplies, which represent a form of humanitarian solidarity with vulnerable groups of society. A team of the branch visited the pediatrics department of Al-Khor Hospital to distribute gifts and toys to the children treated there, with a view to making them happy and engage them in the celebrations of Ramadan. The hospital's public relations department praised QRCS's efforts and constant cooperation in such visits, which this year cheered 10 children. As usual every year, the branch organized a campaign at mosques to offer medical advice and sugar/pressure tests for free. At least 300 men and women were informed about the benefits of fasting and how to avoid unhealthy practices, under the supervision of the Mosques Department of the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. QRCS Branch in Al-Khor works hard to provide social and humanitarian services for the people of Al-Shamal region, with a view to enhancing QRCS's influence in that part of Qatar as an auxiliary to the State of Qatar in its humanitarian and social policies locally and abroad, contributing to the development of local communities and designing customized services and social programs for specific regions.
