The HR pack was designed to provide methodological support to humanitarian aid and international development CSOs in order to help them better structure their human resources in program data management, be it to conduct an overall internal review of the HR organisation in program data management, to identify training needs, to launch a recruitment or even to build or strengthen an organisational strategy on the topic with structuring aims.Supporting humanitarian aid and international development CSOs in setting up the structure of their human resources in program data management is crucial and allows not only to think about program data management in a strategic way, but also ensures that the human resources mobilised by the organisations are in line with their actual program data management needs.The aim of the HR pack is to allow for a silo-based approach, starting with the most general aspects linked to the main skills blocks in program data management, then moving down to the organisational aspects and finally to the job description level.The pack is composed of a short study entitled “Framing the key issues and getting familiar with the toolbox” (which acts as an introduction), and of four tools designed to be easily accessible to HR specialists as well as more “technical advisor” type profiles specialised in program data management or monitoring and evaluation.Although the pack has been designed as a continuum, each tool can also be used separately, mainly as a resource to guide and widen the reflection on the way to structure program data management within an organisation, to launch the recruitment for a program data management position or to frame program data management training needs.

   “Over 2.8 million Syrian children missing out on their education with little prospects for a better future. These are the children that need the most support,” said Mr. Anthony MacDonald, Head of Office, UNICEF, Qatar during an interview conducted by Qatar Charity’s ‘Ghiras.’ magazine. The full interview is below:  Firstly, we would like to use this opportunity to express our deepest appreciation for Qatar Charity`s global strategic partnership with UNICEF and acknowledge that by joining forces, we have been able to work together to support vulnerable children around the world. We would like to acknowledge Qatar Charity`s specifically generous support to UNICEF in Syria and Jordan this year. We are looking forward to continuing to expand our cooperation in Turkey to support Syrian refugee children and families. Q: Several Middle East countries like Yemen and Syria are going through continuous crises, affecting children badly in many ways. What is the extent of the damage the children have suffered there, especially as these crises have been going on for a decade? A: The protracted conflicts in many countries around the region have a compound impact on children and a childhood beyond any words. Children are being deprived of their basic rights, including living in safety, accessing education, receiving health services, and grow and reach their full potential.  In Syria, almost 10 years of war has left four in five children from Syria in need of humanitarian assistance, including the very basics like health, warm clothes, education, and food. But above all, it left children in need of protection and safety.  The conflict in Syria has caused the largest ongoing displacement crisis in recent history. People fled inside Syria, across its borders and beyond.  Over 5 million children have been displaced inside Syria or neighboring countries (2.6 million children inside Syria and 2.5 million children in neighboring countries). Entire families have had to flee violence leaving behind all of their belongings – some multiple times.  Nearly 6 million children know nothing but war, as nearly 4.8 million children in Syria were born into the war, and more than 1 million were born as refugees.  Currently, families in Syria are resorting to extreme survival measures as the price of essential food items have risen 20 times since the war began. Families in neighboring countries are facing deteriorating economic situations and dwindling funding available to respond to their needs.  Over 2.8 million Syrian children missing out on their education with few prospects for a better future. These are the children that need the most support.  Over 2 million children - over one-third of Syria’s child population -inside Syria are out of school, and 800,000 child refugees in neighboring countries are still missing out on their education. Children in Yemen are already struggling to survive in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.  After five years of conflict, around four in five children – 12.3 million – are in desperate need of aid. Tens of thousands of children have died, both as a direct result of the fighting and indirect causes like disease and malnutrition. More than 1.7 million children have been forced to flee their homes and live in camps or improvised settings in other parts of Yemen.  Two million children in Yemen are out of school. Now schools have been closed around the country in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, an additional 5.8 million children are out of education. Most public-school teachers have not been paid in more than three years. At least 2,000 schools – one out of 16,000 overall - are unfit for use because of the conflict – either destroyed, used for military purposes, or taken over as a shelter for displaced people. With the arrival of COVID-19, the health systems in countries like Syria and Yemen were already strained and striving to cope. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, only around half of Yemen's health facilities were operational, and those that were running faced severe shortages in medicine, equipment, and staff. Inside Syria, half of all health care facilities were partially functioning or were not functioning at all. The impacts of COVID-19 on families' health systems and livelihood due to the deteriorating economic situation is further exacerbating the suffering of children in these countries.  Q: In general, the coronavirus has affected children's education worldwide, but it has affected the children of developing countries more severely. What are the main risks, and how can they be minimized? A: During the lockdowns imposed early on to curb the spread of the virus, the education of 110 million children and young people have been disrupted in all countries around the Middle East and North Africa region. This disruption in education could directly result in setting back children’s learning, and this will translate into losses across the economies and societies for years to come.  UNICEF data reviled that two in five children in the MENA region (38 million children) did not have access to remote learning during school closures in the time of COVID-19 pandemic. In general, alternative options to learning offered during COVD19 did not reach all children, especially due to disparities, including access to devices and internet coverage. This is worrying as children in many countries around the region were not receiving a quality education to begin with. In many countries, schools are not equipping children with the necessary basic reading, writing, and math skills. Six out of 10 children in the region cannot read or understand a simple age-appropriate text at age 10. It should also be noted that 14 million school-aged children were already out-of-school before the COVID-19 pandemic, many because of wars and armed conflicts. Once a decision to reopen schools is taken on the national level, the safe reopening of schools following hygiene protocols must be prioritized. This includes physical distancing, promoting regular and thorough handwashing, good respiratory hygiene, keeping facilities clean and hygienic, using protective equipment including masks based on a national protocol, and monitoring student and staff health while maintaining regular contact with local health authorities. Moreover, it is essential to provide children with opportunities to get the chance to catch up on what they missed out on during lockdown so they do not fall further behind. Shortly, there should be real investments made to bridge the digital divide to increase and improve children’s access across the region to remote learning tools, including TV, radio, and online platforms. It is also important to secure additional financing and prioritize resources for the education sector as public budgets focus on other priories. And above all, teaches should be provided with support, which is key to keeping children engaged in the classroom or at home. Q: What are the UNICEF efforts to provide educational opportunities for children and reduce school dropout, especially in crisis-hit areas? A: Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF supported remote learning in all MENA countries and directly reached nearly four million children as part of continuous education. UNICEF helped governments and partners produce and disseminate e-learning modules and educational broadcast materials for radio, TV, and online platforms, as well as guidance for parents in supporting learning and stimulating activities for their children at home.  As schools were starting to reopen, UNICEF MENA launched the “Ready to Come Back: A Teacher Preparedness Training Package” to prepare teachers for teaching and learning in the time of COVID.   UNICEF also continues to support children continue education in crisis-hit countries: In Syria, UNICEF, with its partners, support children and families through school rehabilitation, teachers training, curriculum b (a special program for children who have missed out on school in which children complete two school years in one to catch up with their peers) and self-learning programs, education bursaries for children coming from hard-to-reach areas for national exams, remedial classes, supplies including school bags, learning materials, recreational materials and stationery, early childhood education, and pre-fabricated classrooms.  Nearly 5 a million children inside Syria and in neighboring countries have access to learning against all odds, and thanks to the efforts of teachers, education personnel and partners on the ground – and with generous support from donors. In Yemen, UNICEF provided nearly 400,000 children with individual learning materials, and nearly 45,000 children with access to formal and non-formal education, including early learning. Moreover, UNICEF and its donors are committed to providing temporary and partial relief for more than 114,000 affected teachers and school-based staff by providing incentives to enable them to attend school.   Q: Extending psychological support is one of the projects implemented by UNICEF. What is the importance of this aspect, especially in crisis-stricken areas and in light of the coronavirus pandemic? A: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a compound impact on children’s wellbeing and mental health.In the most recent survey conducted by UNICEF and partners that reached around 7,000 households in seven countries, covering nearly 13,000 children, over half of the respondents say that their children have been struggling mentally and emotionally. Moreover, half of the respondents stated that their children are deprived of outdoor play and social interaction, and as a result, experience anxiety, boredom, and stress. It is becoming increasingly essential to repurpose and repackage mental health and psychosocial support to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially on children in conflict-stricken countries.  Since the the onset of the pandemic, UNICEF reached through psychosocial support and mental health services nearly 315,000 children, parents, and primary caregivers. To read the interview and other articles and reports, please click on the following link https://www.qcharity.org/Exportpath/WebStoryGhras/2021/2/0-Photo2021-02-23_11-51-27-AM.pdf

 À l'occasion de la Journée mondiale de l'eau 2021, Qatar Charity célèbre ses réalisations en matière d'eau, d'assainissement et d’hygiène accomplies dans de nombreux pays du monde, alors que ses efforts ont été appréciés par les organisations des Nations Unies confirmant sa contribution significative à la fourniture d'eau potable dans le monde entier.Les projets d’eau de Qatar Charity, mis en œuvre par l’intermédiaire de ses bureaux et de ses équipes sur le terrain ou en coopération avec ses partenaires locaux et internationaux, ont joué un rôle important dans la limitation de la propagation des maladies et des épidémies et dans l’approvisionnement en eau potable des personnes déplacées vivant dans les camps.Valoriser l'eau`` Valoriser l'eau '' est le thème de la Journée mondiale de l'eau 2021, qui est une journée annuelle de célébration des Nations Unies pour souligner l'importance de l’eau, sensibilisé à la crise mondiale de l'eau, soutient la réalisation de l'Objectif de développement durable (ODD) 6: l'eau et l'assainissement pour tous d'ici 2030.Alors que le thème de la Journée mondiale de l'eau 2021 met l'accent sur l'énorme valeur de l'eau dans nos vies, notre santé, notre éducation et notre économie, nous ne devons pas arroser et gérer correctement cette ressource limitée, car personne ne peut vivre sans elle.Affecté par la crise de l'eauSelon les rapports de l'ONU, 2,1 milliards de personnes n'ont pas accès à des services d'eau potable et 1 personne sur 10 dans le monde souffre de pénurie d'eau.La crise de l'eau affecte les femmes de manière disproportionnée, car elles sont souvent chargées d'aller chercher de l'eau, ce qui enlève du temps au travail, à l'école et à la famille. Le manque d'eau et d'assainissement enferme les femmes dans un cycle de pauvreté.En outre, les enfants ont la responsabilité d'apporter de l'eau à leurs familles, ce qui les oblige à quitter l'école et à ne pas trouver le temps de jouer.Environ 1 million de personnes meurent chaque année de maladies liées à l'eau, à l'assainissement et à l'hygiène, et toutes les 2 minutes, un enfant meurt d'une maladie liée à l'eau.« Le temps passé à collecter de l'eau ou à rechercher un assainissement sûr représente des milliards d'opportunités économiques perdues. 260 milliards de dollars sont perdus chaque année dans le monde en raison du manque d'eau et d'assainissement de base », selon Water.org, une organisation à but non lucratif.Réalisations 2020 de Qatar CharityLe secteur d’eau est l’un des principaux domaines d’activité de Qatar Charity. Il cherche à aider les communautés dans le besoin à obtenir de l'eau potable tout au long de l'année, en mettant les installations d'eau potable à la porte de ses bénéficiaires ou à leur portée pour les protéger des maladies liées à l'eau. De janvier 2020 à février 2021, Qatar Charity a mis en œuvre plus de 12000 projets d'eau dans 23 pays à travers le monde, bénéficiant à près de 7 millions de personnes. Au niveau national, 358 projets d'eau ont été mis en œuvre, bénéficiant à près de 70 000 personnes.Par exemple, au Bangladesh, 400 projets ont été mis en œuvre, pour un coût près de 15 millions riyals qatariens, bénéficiant à plus de deux millions de personnes. Au Pakistan, environ 2 000 projets d'eau ont été mis en œuvre, pour un coût d'environ 10 millions riyals qatariens, bénéficiant à plus de 363 000 personnes.   PartenariatsQatar Charity a tenu à fournir de l'eau potable au Pakistan où elle a mis en œuvre des projets de pompes à main dans le Sind et au Baloutchistan, en plus de fournir des réservoirs d'eau. Il a également installé des refroidisseurs d'eau dans les écoles et les bureaux gouvernementaux du district de Tando Muhammad Khan. Ces projets sont mis en œuvre en coordination avec les autorités officielles des différentes provinces.Qatar Charity a achevé la mise en œuvre d'un projet WASH à long terme au Pakistan, en partenariat avec l'UNICEF.Les experts en eau de l'UNICEF ont apprécié le rôle de Qatar Charity dans l'approvisionnement en eau potable, comme Mme Sabahat Umbrian, experte en eau de l'UNICEF, a déclaré que Qatar Charity avait mis en œuvre un projet de bonne qualité.Léau pour les déplacésQatar Charity a mis en œuvre un projet d’eau d’un million QAR, qui est le dernier, dans le nord de la Syrie en partenariat avec le Bureau des Nations Unies pour la coordination des affaires humanitaires (OCHA) pour fournir des services WASH d'urgence dans les camps de squatters et les établissements de santé.M. Khaled Al-Hussein, responsable au bureau turc de Qatar Charity, a déclaré qu'au cours des quatre dernières années, Qatar Charity a mis en œuvre plusieurs projets, tels que l'exploitation de stations d'eau, l'extension du réseau d'eau, la distribution de réservoirs d'eau dans les camps, pour soutenir le secteur de l'eau dans le nord de la Syrie.Il a ajouté que des travaux sont actuellement en cours pour lancer un projet de réponse intégrée pour les communautés déplacées et hôtes afin de leur fournir des services d’eau au coût de 7 millions riyals qatariens.

On World Water Day 2021, Qatar Charity celebrates its water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) achievements accomplished in many countries of the world, as its WASH efforts were welcomed and appreciated by the UN organizations confirming its significant contribution to providing clean water around the world.Qatar Charity’s WASH projects, implemented through its offices and field teams or in cooperation with its local and international partners played an important role in limiting the spread of diseases and epidemics, and providing safe drinking water to the displaced living in camps.Valuing Water‘Valuing Water’ is the theme of World Water Day 2021, which is an annual UN observance a day celebrated to highlight the importance of freshwater, raises awareness of the global water crisis, support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.As the theme of the World Water Day 2021 emphasizes the tremendous value of water in our lives, health, education, and economy, we must not water and manage this limited resource properly because no one can live without it. Affected by Water CrisisAccording to UN reports, 2.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water services, and 1 in 10 people in the world suffers from water scarcity.The water crisis affects women disproportionately as they are often responsible for fetching water, which takes time away from work, school, and caring for a family. The lack of water and sanitation locks women in a cycle of poverty. Besides, children are responsible for bringing water for their families, which causes them to move away from school and find no time to play.Approximately 1 million people die annually from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related diseases, and every 2 minutes, a child dies from a water-related disease.“Time spent gathering water or seeking safe sanitation accounts for billions in lost economic opportunities. $260 billion is lost eachyear globally due to lack of basic water and sanitation,” according to Water.org, a nonprofit organization.Qatar Charity’s 2020 AchievementsThe WASH sector is one of Qatar Charity’s main areas of work. It seeks to help communities in need obtain clean water throughout the year, bringing the safe water facilities to its beneficiaries' doorstep or within their reach to protect them from water-related diseases. Internationally, from January 2020 to February 2021, Qatar Charity has implemented more than 12,000 water projects in 23 countries around the world, benefiting nearly 7 million people.Domestically, 358 water projects have been implemented, benefiting nearly 70,000 people. For instance, In Bangladesh, 400 projects have been implemented, at the cost of almost 15 million Qatari riyals, benefiting more than two million people. In Pakistan, approximately 2,000 water projects have been implemented, at the cost of about 10 million Qatari riyals, benefiting more than 363,000 people.PartnershipsQatar Charity has been keen to provide safe drinking water in Pakistan, where it has implemented hand pumps projects in Sindh and Baluchistan, in addition to providing water tanks. It also installed water coolers in schools and government offices in Tando Muhammad Khan District. These projects are implemented in coordination with the official authorities of the different provinces.Qatar Charity completed the implementation of a long-term WASH project in Pakistan, in partnership with UNICEF. UNICEF water experts appreciated the role of Qatar Charity in providing safe drinking water, as Ms. Sabahat Umbrian, UNICEF water expert said that Qatar Charity had implemented a good-quality project. WASH Services for the DisplacedQatar The charity has implemented a QAR 1 million WASH project, which is the latest one, in northern Syria in partnership with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) to provide emergency WASH services in squatter camps and health facilities.

Even after a decade of the Syrian crisis, it remains a terrifying humanitarian tragedy and the largest displacement crisis globally. The humanitarian situation is more problematic than ever. The crisis has left behind widespread destruction and massive damage to infrastructure, and affected the economy badly. Many sectors, especially health and educational facilities, went out of service. Over 5.6 million people have fled Syria since 2011, seeking safety in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and beyond, and another 6.6 million people remain displaced inside the country. Millions of Syrians need humanitarian assistance. Approximately 92 percent of refugees who have fled to neighboring countries live in rural and urban settings, with only 8 percent living in refugee camps.Turkey alone hosts the largest refugee population - 3.6 million. Below Poverty LineAccording to the UN Refugee Agency, the Syrian refugees live in challenging conditions in Lebanon where there are no formal refugee camps and, as a result, more than a million registered Syrians are scattered throughout more than 2,100 urban and rural communities and locations. Around 75 per cent live below the poverty line.In Jordan, over 655,000 Syrian refugees are currently trapped in exile. Approximately 80 per cent of them live outside camps, while more than 139,000 have found sanctuary at the camps of Za’atari and Azraq. An estimated 93 percent of the refugees live below the poverty line.Iraq has also seen a growing number of Syrians arriving, hosting more than 246,000.Disruption to Education“Inside Syria, there are over 2.4 million children out of school, nearly 40 per cent are girls. This number has likely increased in 2020 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which exacerbated the disruption to education in Syria. One in three schools inside Syria can no longer be used because they were destroyed or damaged,” according to UNICEF. “Children who are able to attend school often learn in overcrowded classrooms, and in buildings with insufficient water and sanitation facilities, electricity, heating or ventilation.”Impact of COVID-19“The impact of COVID-19 on poverty levels among Syrian refugees and host communities in Jordan, Lebanon and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) has been severe and profound in 2020. An estimated 4.4 million people in host communities, close to 1 million Syrian refugees and 180,000 internally displaced Iraqis in KRI were newly affected by poverty after the beginning of the crisis,” according to a new joint study by the World Bank and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) published on the Reliefweb website.   Syrian Crisis: Facts and Figures at a Glance·       There are 12.2 IDPs and refugees (6.6 IDPs and 5.6 refugees).·       Two million Syrians live in extreme poverty, according to United Nations estimates.·       A record 12.4 million people in Syria are struggling to find enough food to eat.·       Approximately 13.4 million people need humanitarian aid, according to the United Nations.·       Inside Syria, there are over 2.4 million children out of school.·       2.6 million children were displaced by the end of 2019·       Save the Children estimates that over 60% of all children in the country are now facing hunger.
