In early October, Qatar Charity provided distribution of emergency relief assistance for the victims of the September floods in Jammu and Kashmir, northern India.
The villages of Arigatnoo and Tehsil Kulgam, District Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir were the primary distribution locations with 4,000 people benefiting from food parcels, which included rice, flour, lentils, onions, sugar and powdered milk, bread and oil, in addition to other materials such as kitchen equipment, candles and other non-food items.
In late October 2014, Qatar Charity sponsored the first conference to promote Syrian recovery and reconstruction. The conference, held in Istanbul, Turkey was attended by 120 representatives of 60 international organizations, donors and experts in development work, and organizations and associations working in the field of humanitarian action
Qatar Charity's follow-up to the emergency relief it already provided in response to the August 2014 floods in Sudan's River Nile State has initially focused on education. Schools have been renovated and teacher-training courses provided in order to improve local education conditions, which were further strained as result of the floods. At a cost of QAR one million (USD 275,000), seven schools (including 21 classrooms and 40 toilets) were renovated to benefit 4,500 students in areas adjacent to Ad-Dahmir.
The seasonal rains that fell more profusely than normal over a short period in mid-September 2014 led to flooding from four key Pakistani rivers. This caused total or partial destruction of nearly 17,000 homes, the loss of tens of thousands of hectares of agricultural land and killed nearly 1,000 cattle and at least 320 people throughout parts of Punjab and Kashmir.
Qatar Charity has concluded its humanitarian forum in support of the Palestinian people, with pledges amounting to USD 100 million.
Recommendations resulting from the forum included the establishment of institutions for education, development and humanitarian action and economic empowerment for the benefit of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the Diaspora camps.
