Qatar Charity, with the generous support of the people in Qatar, has implemented 11 major development projects in Indonesia at total cost of over QR13m during the past two years.
The projects, which were implemented in the fields of education, health and social welfare to support thousands of orphans and low-income families, will be inaugurated in the near future.  
“Qatar Charity exerts its utmost efforts continuously in the field of development and social welfare to protect the most vulnerable and help those most in need,” said Karam Zeinhom Aly, director of Qatar Charity’s office in Indonesia.
He pointed out that the implementation of the projects, which will be opened soon, began in 2017 and ended in 2019, noting that they would contribute significantly to the development of communities and provide the necessary services in the areas of health, education and social welfare.
He added that all these projects have been implemented with the support from the people in Qatar, who always respond to the needs of the Indonesian society, pointing out that many donors direct their donations to social projects.


For his part, Hendra Hadi, project officer at Qatar Charity’s office in Jakarta, said the projects implemented in various Indonesian regions, included centers for the care and rehabilitation of orphans in Banten, 20 social housing units as well as multiple service center in Subang, and a residential complex with 25 houses in East Lombok, in addition to building many hospitals and clinics across the country.
