November 14th, 2017 ― Doha: Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) and the Scout and Girl Guide Association of Qatar have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to reinforce cooperation in joint fields of work. The scope of the MoU involves mobilization of resources to promote awareness of the International Humanitarian Law (IHL), protection of humanitarian principles and relief service providers in emergency, creation of an education-friendly environment for different segments of society, and exchange of knowledge and expertise of common concern. The pact was signed by Ali bin Hassan Al-Hammadi, Secretary-General of QRCS, and Jassim Mohammed Al-Hardan, Commissioner-General of Qatar Scout and Girl Guides Association. The ceremony was attended by Issa Al Ishaq, Director of Communication, and Noura Rashid Al-Dosari, Executive Director of Volunteering and Local Development (QRCS), and Mohamed Radi Abdullah, Deputy Head of Scout and Girl Guide Pioneers, and Khaled Ahmed Al-Hitmi, Commissioner of Media and Public Relations (Association). In his remarks, Mr. Al-Hammadi thanked the guests for signing this agreement, which is crucial for Qatari society. "Since our childhood, we have been members of the scouting movement at schools. These activities taught us a lot of lessons and engaged us in many useful camps," said the Secretary-General. He wished the agreement would help regulate the bilateral relations, in the best interest of nationals and residents alike. For him, this partnership would pave the way for more achievements in the service of humanity at large. Mr. Al-Hardan stated, "We appreciate the hospitality of QRCS officials. The agreement would hopefully enrich the scouting movement in Qatar with contributions from QRCS. The partnership has already existed, but now, it will become deeper and more coordinated". "Utilizing its long experience, QRCS will hold relief training courses for our scouts, particularly at early ages. Both QRCS and the Association are international organizations. We will do our best together to be up to expectations," he added.
