Qatar Charity (QC) has entered a partnership agreement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Somali capital, Mogadishu with a sum of QR 3.5mn.
The agreement is regarding a project to support the voluntary return of those displaced in south Somalia. Accordingly, UNHCR would work jointly to help around 1,100 displaced Somali families return voluntarily to their home towns. UNHCR would finance the project with around QR3.4mn and QC would carry out the project through its field office in Somalia.
“This project is very important for improving the humanitarian situation in Somalia and would help greatly in stabilising the situation there. Partnership with international organisations in such projects is crucial for its success,” said Mohammed al-Ghamidi, director of QC international development department.
QC has immense field experience in the interior areas of Somalia through its office there, which enjoys the trust of local Somalis.
The project is part of QC’s initiatives on reconstruction and providing aid to poor families.
