More than 600 orphans participated in the Arab Orphans Day celebration organised by the Qatar Charity (QC) office in Sudan.
A number of activities and events were held on the occasion, which was attended by Dr Mustafa al-Sinari, deputy commissioner of humanitarian aid in Khartoum State, in addition to a number of QC’s partner organisations.
The celebrations included plays and performing arts presented by the orphans, which dwelt on issues of sponsorship and philanthropy. Besides, the orphans were able to express their wishes for the children of Palestine through paintings.
A variety of entertainment programmes for children were also presented by a specialist team as part of the celebration.
The attending guests expressed their gratitude to Qatar, QC and the sponsors for their efforts in the service of orphans in Sudan, Qatar Charity said in a statement.
The orphans sponsored by QC expressed their gratitude towards the charity and Qatar through drawings, colouring, wall paintings and clay games. Nine outstanding orphaned students were honoured during the celebration for their academic performance.
The celebrations were held as part of QC’s activities for its sponsored orphans in Sudan for this year. A number of sports, health, education, entertainment activities will be implemented with the aim of providing comprehensive social care to orphans, the statement noted.
QC sponsors around 10,000 orphans in Sudan, providing financial support as well as comprehensive education and healthcare. It also organises targeted activities for them.
The organisation said it “strives to develop its work and implement development projects for orphans in Sudan.” It had previously built the Sheikha Aisha Bint Hamad Bin Abdullah Al-Attiyah Model Orphans City, which was opened in mid-April last year, at a cost of more than $12mn in Al Damar, River Nile State.
