Doha, August 06 (QNA) – Qatar Airways in conjunction with Qatar Charity hosted a special Iftar for more than 100 orphan children living in Qatar as part of the Holy Month of Ramadan celebrations.
The event, organised by Qatar Airways Doha Sales Department, aimed to provide the children with an unforgettable evening of entertainment and loving hospitality, the Doha-headquartered carrier said Monday.
The children were accompanied by family members or friends who also enjoyed activities such as henna drawing and face painting as well as the chance to enjoy a delicious Iftar meal.
The children enjoyed activities such as train rides, a bouncing castle and received gifts including branded Qatar Airways school bags, a cuddly toy and a brand new T-shirt.
Qatar Airways Vice President Commercial Doha, Ehab Amin, said the airline always looks forward to supporting the local community through events during Ramadan.
