Orphans in Kosovo under the care of Qatar Charity

Qatar Charity has completed the construction of Kosovo’s second largest mosque at a cost of QR 1.4 million ($385,000).

“The Mosque consists of three floors and includes special classes for teaching the Holy Quran and Arabic language,” Mahmood Abbas, Qatar Charity’s representative in Kosovo said. “The mosque, built on an area of 800 square meters, can accommodate 9,000 worshippers,” he said.

Charity work also focused on orphan sponsorship, income-generating projects and seasonal projects in partnership with the Kosovo’s Social Association Maqboula (Acceptable), Mahmood said.

A comprehensive sponsorship of 900 orphans includes covering their health, education, sports and recreational activities.

Under a plan to empower economically the orphans, the charity, in cooperation with Maqboula, assisted 50 families with income-generating projects such as milky cows, groceries and car workshops.

Qatar Charity (QC), a non-government organisation established in 1992, is one of the largest charities in the Gulf with activities spanning more than 40 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe.

The organization says that its objective is to support the Qatari society and needy communities abroad and that it focuses its activities on humanitarian relief, the development of families, women and children, education and culture and income generating projects and investments.

QC said that around 40,000 people benefited from its work in 2009.
