Qatar Airways Cargo continues its commitment by launching Chapter 3 of its WeQare programme, “Let’s Stand Together”. Chapter 3 involves a big donation drive that seeks to gather donations for children from 26 April 26 to 10 May 2022.
For this chapter, the company is organising a collection of in-kind donations for children. The donation drive focuses on three aspects: education, sports and fun, and the airline will collect study material (books, school bags, pencils), clothes and sports items (socks, soccer balls, sneakers, jerseys) as well as toys, musical instruments and board games.
The collection of the donations is rolled out worldwide, and open for business partners, friends, families and anyone willing to participate in this great movement of solidarity that will last until 10 May 2022.
Any donation for children is welcome, as long as it is clean, in good condition and without batteries, the airline noted.
To collect the donations, each station of the company will have its own collection point, where people can drop off their donations. Qatar Airways Cargo has also opened six donation collection points for its employees, as well as a public collection point in Doha.
The donations will be sent in by the Qatar Airways Cargo global offices to its hub in Doha where a massive sorting activity will take place on 17 May, following which the donations will be sent all over the world. In line with its commitment to sustainability, Qatar Airways Cargo will also offset the CO2 emissions of the donated items.
Chapter 3 of Qatar Air’s WeQare programme builds on the success of the first two chapters over the last 2 years, which include the free transport of 1 million kilos of humanitarian aid and medical equipment to charitable organisations, and the free transport of wildlife and endangered animals back to their natural habitat.
