Qatar celebrated Eid-Al-Fitr with much love and care with their initiative ‘Let’s Celebrate Eid Together’. Under the initiative a total of 50,000 food kits were distributed to community members reflecting government’s keenness towards ensuring the welfare of its expatriate communities during the tough time of the Covid-19 and helping them celebrate Eid al-Fitr at home and conveying the message of staying together.
The initiative was a joint work between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Interior (MoI), the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MDLSA), Qatar Charity and Ooredoo. ‘Let’s Celebrate Eid Together’ has come as another step that strengthens the bond between Qatar and members of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Gambia, Nigeria, Tunisia, Ghana and Kenya.
Individuals from 17 different nationalities received the food kits with enthusiasm. These kits were arranged by Qatar Charity.
There were also 50,000 greeting cards of Eid that were distributed to the community members. These were distributed along with 4,350 toys for children, 2,279 gifts and 20.00 QAR recharge cards from Ooredoo for workers.
Ministries of Interior and Labour have made use of the occasion to raise awareness against Covid-19 and the kits include awareness brochures in 11 languages, especially of Asian communities residing in Qatar. A total of 25,000 Stay at Home stickers were also part of the kits.
