  • 3 months   ago

The ‘One Million Smiles’ initiative, which was launched by Qatar Charity as part of its ‘Warmth and Peace’ winter campaign, received an overwhelming response from the public, athletes, media professionals and social media influencers. The initiative has managed to draw smiles on the faces of 300,000 people so far, out of one million smiles targeted by the initiative in 19 countries around the world.

In a kind gesture, all Qatar Stars League clubs held a banner that reads “One Million Smiles” in support of the ‘Warmth and Peace’ campaign to alleviate the suffering of refugees in the harsh winter, which doubled their suffering.

Mr. Hassan Rabiah Al Kuwari, Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Communications at Qatar Stars League, praised Qatar Charity for launching ‘One Million Smiles’ initiative. "We are proud to participate in this drive in cooperation with Qatar Charity,” Al Kuwari said, thanking Qatar Charity for its humanitarian role around the world, especially during these exceptional circumstances faced by refugees and the displaced.

Al Kuwari, "Our participation in this campaign is based on the societal role of the Qatar Stars League, interaction with community events, and support for all initiatives and programs in cooperation with various bodies.”

On this occasion, he thanked the clubs and players for their participation in this initiative, noting that football, which is very popular among people, can play a role in supporting humanitarian and community activities and programs.

Abdul Karim Hassan, a player of Al Sadd Sports Club and the Qatar National Team, said that our participation in the initiative is a humanitarian duty, and we, as players, must take part in charitable works that help the poor and needy, as the players especially footballers have a large number of fans.  

Qatar Charity, through this initiative, aims to support the displaced and refugees in countries going through exceptional conditions and facing a harsh winter, and provide them with winter essentials, food and other items to help them survive the severe cold.


Qatar Charity urges benefactors in Qatar to take part in the initiative to extend a helping hand to those who are suffering this winter, calling on social media influencers to support the initiative in all possible ways.
