Qatar Charity is a Doha-based non-governmental organization founded in 1992 in accordance with the laws and regulations governing charitable work in the State of Qatar. The Qatari society was expressing a deep willingness to contribute to the international solidarity chain and to participate in addressing the most important development and humanitarian challenges faced by vulnerable communities around the world. This willingness was derived from the Qatari society’s values, principles and cultural heritage and Qatar Charity came as the institutional solution that would cater to it. Initially founded to provide life-saving assistance to children affected by conflicts or natural disasters, Qatar Charity then expanded its areas of expertise to include various humanitarian and development aid fields in which it has spent more than $1.3bn between 2013 and 2017, providing relief and assistance to more than 110 million beneficiaries worldwide.
Sponsored by Qatar Fund for Development, Qatar Charity and Qatar Pharma signed a partnership and cooperation agreement worth $1 million to supply medicines and medical consumables for the humanitarian response in Syria.
