The General Administration of Endowments at the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf) has announced a support of QR461,330 to the Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs (QSRSN). The announcement was made by the General Administration of Endowments director general Dr Sheikh Khalid bin Muhammad bin Ghanim al-Thani at a press conference in the presence of QSRSN director Talib Afifa.
The amount will be spent to purchase prosthetic devices, chairs and other equipment, benefiting 55 members of the association with mobility, hearing, visual and multiple disabilities. Also, autistic beneficiaries will be given assistance. Help will be given from Waqf Bank for Healthcare for persons with limited income.
The director general said that the Waqf Bank for Healthcare sought to establish projects and form partnerships with various parties including QSRSN citing that Awqaf has been in touch with the association for years and recorded many achievements together.
“Caring for people with disabilities and creating a creative environment for them is one of the most important things that Islam has urged. On this approach, we came to complement this initiative. This support comes from the standpoint of joint competencies and the strengthening of co-operation between the General Administration of Endowments and QSRSN." Afifa expressed his gratitude to Awqaf and said the relationship between the two organisations is well-established.
