Qatar Charity to lay foundation stone for huge housing project
A delegation of Qatar Charity (QC), headed by its CEO Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Kurai, arrived in Turkey to lay the foundation stone for a large housing project for internally displaced Syrians. This comes as part of Qatar Charity’s continued efforts to provide qualitative shelters for the vulnerable. The residential city, which is considered one of the largest housing projects for the displaced Syrians, will have 1,400 homes and basic facilities. It is also expected to include kindergartens, primary, preparatory and secondary schools for boys and girls, and vocational schools. The city will also have a mosque, a primary health care center, a market, administrative buildings, green spaces, and children's play areas, in addition to the integrated infrastructure for water, sanitation, and electricity services, and roads. Qatar Charity, through this project, aims to alleviate the the suffering of the displaced in northern Syria by providing adequate housing for their families living in challenging humanitarian conditions due to the displacement and the lack of the essentials of a safe life.Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, Qatar Charity has managed to establish 11 model villages, benefiting tens of thousands of the affected and the displaced in northern Syria and Syrian refugees in some neighboring countries, at a total cost of 96.5 million Qatar riyals. These villages and cities have nearly 5,368 housing units for 5,368 families. Some of them have schools, clinics, and health centers.
