Doha: Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has signed an agreement with Nasser Al Attiyah, announcing the world-level Qatari rally driver and Skeet shooter as a humanitarian ambassador.
Pursuing the common goals of sports and humanitarian action, this partnership is aimed at advocating major social and humanitarian causes; promoting humanitarianism, community service, and volunteerism; and mobilizing support for QRCS's humanitarian activities both locally and internationally.
Among his numerous championships, Al Attiyah is a five-time winner of the Dakar Rally, and he won a bronze medal for skeet shooting in the London 2012 Olympics. With his exceptional motivation and inspiring personality, he has become an icon of Qatari sports and a role model for youth.
“It is my honour to be a QRCS humanitarian ambassador, supporting its humanitarian operations in Qatar and all over the world. As athletes, it is our duty to stand hand-in-hand with you, offering as much as we can for nothing in return. It is a message that we would like to convey to the public. Everyone would wish to be part of your team, helping people in emergencies,” said Al Attiyah.
Faisal Mohamed Al Emadi, Acting Secretary-General of QRCS, commented,“Welcome Nasser Al Attiyah as a new member of the QRCS family. When we contacted you on a short notice, you did not hesitate to accept our request. Thank you! You are expected to actively contribute to QRCS's 45-year humanitarian legacy as a leading organization that is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Let's embrace the slogan 'Humanity First.”
