Further she informed how Qatar Charity Contributes to Morocco’s COVID-19 Response Fund
Doha-based NGO Qatar Charity has made a financial contribution to Morocco’s Special Fund for the Management and Response to COVID-19.
The embassy of Qatar in Rabat facilitated the transfer of the aid package to Morocco’s coronavirus response fund, according to Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The assistance for Morocco aligns with Qatar Charity’s campaign to support several countries’ COVID-19 response and occurred in coordination with government authorities.
Qatar Charity launched its “Call of Humanity” initiative in March to support efforts to combat the pandemic across the globe.
King Mohammed VI ordered the creation of Morocco’s COVID-19 response fund on March 15 to strengthen the country’s health infrastructure and mitigate the social and economic impacts of the pandemic. The King established the fund with an initial sum of MAD 10 billion ($1 billion). 
The fund has since more than tripled in size thanks to contributions from public and private sector institutions and individuals, and from foreign governments and institutions.
