Sudanese Refugees In Egypt And Chad Will Get 4 Million Riyals From Qatar Charity & UNHCR
In a statement, Nawaf Abdulla Al-Hammadi, Chief Global Programmes Officer of Qatar Charity, reaffirmed the organization’s dedication to working with UNHCR to assist those who are internally displaced.
22,341 Sudanese refugees in Egypt will receive cash aid through the allocated monies for essentials including rent, food, and medical care
Essential humanitarian supplies, such as blankets, kitchen sets, sleeping mats, and jerrycans, will be given to an additional 7,790 Sudanese refugees in Chad.
In order to improve the welfare of more than 30,000 Sudanese refugees living in Egypt and Chad, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and Qatar Charity signed two agreements worth a combined QAR 4,375,696 (about US$1.2 million).
This assistance, made possible by the Islamic charitable practise of zakat, aims to address the mounting humanitarian problems encountered by Sudanese refugees.
Following the signing of a Letter of Intent on Islamic Philanthropy Collaboration between UNHCR and Qatar Charity in March of last year, this financial promise was made. The letter emphasises the crucial part that Zakat plays in meeting urgent humanitarian needs around the world.
