Qatar Charity organised a charity bazaar under the theme 'The Best of Our Kids, to support the persecuted Rohingya children, at Aspire Zone Park.

The children of Qatar showcased handmade toys to the public for sale. The event aims at helping the Rohingya children in Bangladesh and Myanmar.

The event's schedule included recreational, entertainment, and sport activities, as well as other participations from a number of young journalists, poets, and athletes.

Through recreational and creative activities, the event focused on raising awareness among children about the harsh conditions which their Rohingya peers are going through in refugees' camps. The event promoted the importance of child advocacy and how to support it.

While delivering a speech, Farid Khalil Al Saddequi, Projects & Local Centers Director in Qatar Charity, stated that the importance of sponsoring similar events lies in promoting and strengthening the values of benevolence among the children through educational and recreational ways. 'Hosting similar events enables Qatar Charity to bridge the gap between vulnerable orphans in areas of conflicts and the rest of the world, it will give their cause more exposure he added.

Saddiqui also thanked all those who made 'The Best of Our Kids comes to life including Aspire Logistics, sponsors, volunteers, and parents.

Heyam Al Qahtani, the host of ' The Best of Our Kids said: 'Through the lenses of youth, this event comes as a social and educational initiative that addresses parents and targets their young kids. Its purpose is to promote the role of donation and the importance of helping those in need, as well as creating a healthy and competitive spirit amongst the children. We have targeted the children in Qatar because we believe there is a shortage of similar events that trigger charity subjects in a creative way.

Among the attendees was Dr Abdulrahman Al Harmi, who pointed out that religion plays a pivotal role in educating children to grow selfless and to develop a sense of philanthropy towards those less privileged in life.

Being a member of Qatar Charity's relief campaign in Bangladesh, Captain Souar Al Dahab urged the audience to stand for the persecuted Rohingya children and help them through these dark times.
