(MENAFN- Gulf Times) Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has initiated an Eid Clothing project in Amanat Al-Asimah, Yemen, for the benefit of 800 destitute families. At a total cost of $40,000, the charitable project is funded by the donations of benevolent people in Qatar. The mechanism involves distributing prepaid vouchers to the target families. Three clothes shops were contracted, so that the families would go there to select the new clothes their children like.
Somaiya al-Emad, CEO of Wahb Foundation for Development and Relief in Sana’a, said:“At the foundation, we focus on the community in general, mainly disabled people. The QRCS' Eid Clothing project for persons with disability is putting a smile on the faces of those children and making them feel they are equal to other healthy children. I would like to thank QRCS for its humanitarian projects, especially this one during the Eid-al-Adha”.
This year’s Eid Clothing project for the Eid-al-Adha is part of the campaign launched in Ramadan under the theme of "Race to All That Is Good". It comes amid deteriorated humanitarian conditions suffered by Yemeni people all over the country.
