The different divisions and departments of Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) have been working in full coordination, which reflected positively on the organisation’s reputation and professional performance in providing humanitarian assistance for the vulnerable locally and internationally, said Engineer Ibrahim Abdullah Al Maliki, QRCS’s Chief Executive Director and Acting General-Director of the Relief and International Development Division.
In a statement, Engr Al-Maliki emphasised the successive achievements made by QRCS since year-start, thanks to the concerted efforts and unity of the divisions, which made the organisation stronger and more goal-oriented.
“QRCS spares no effort to attain its principled goals,” said Engr Al Maliki. “As human resources are key to any successful work, QRCS hires competent and highly qualified staff and offers them many training courses to boost their knowledge and skills up to the latest technological and scientific advancements, to have the proficiency required to implement humanitarian, development, and social programs. Also, recognising the important role of volunteers, they are considered central to QRCS, and they receive qualifying courses in the relevant fields”.
“Even though working from home, both the staff and volunteers showed harmony in undertaking the growing responsibilities amid COVID-19, taking the noble goal of helping those in need and serving the country as top priority.
“To maintain social distancing, the divisions utilised modern technology and online workflow. The COVID-19 Crisis Management Committee used webinars to monitor the situation locally and globally and adjust their plans to the programs of the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).
“The Communication Department relied heavily on the internet to publish multilingual informative materials on the website, social media platforms, and mass media channels. It also introduced the public to QRCS’s local and international operations, enhancing the credibility of the organisation.
“QRCS’s Resources Mobilization Department created diverse remote modes of donation, such as the hotline, website, and mobile app, to ensure that donations are received and handled safely.
“Similarly, the Relief and International Development Division used the internet to complete QRCS’s ongoing projects. Despite the current conditions, many local and international relief projects have been accomplished successfully, by virtue of the staff’s huge efforts and humanitarian commitment. We will continue to reach out to the vulnerable and speak up for just humanitarian causes around the world.
“After all, some jobs had to be done in the field. The staff members who were required to be physically present at work locations have all the time been there for the beneficiaries, while duly observing preventive measures to protect against the virus,” he said.
