Refugee, needy children get help from Qatar
The grant will support the PACES foundation, which will train 6,220 children between the ages of 7 and 16 through health, hygiene, sports and educational programs. The children live either in refugee camps or troubled areas of Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan.
The QFD said the grant will help children expand their skills, provide capacity-building for trainers, and deliver advanced courses on financial management to local partners.
QFD Director General Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari and Hani Qattan, chairman of the PACES board of trustees signed the agreement.
