DOHA: The Qatar Postal Services Company (Q-Post) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Qatar Red Crescent (QRC) for bilateral support and sponsorship.
The one-year agreement was signed by Q-Post Chairman Abdul Rahman Ali Al Aqaily, and QRC Secretary-General Saleh bin Ali Al Mohannadi.
As a logistic partner, Q-Post will sponsor the distribution of QRC’s publications and newsletters, particularly in relation to humanitarian campaigns.
In return, QRC will provide the corporation’s staff with hands-on first aid training, informative workshops on the international humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions, and the opportunity to participate in QRC’s annual Disaster Management Camp.
“Cooperation with charitable organisations is a top priority for Q-Post, which translates into initiatives to support organisations that serve humanity worldwide,” said Al Aqaily,
Al Mohannadi explained that QRC’s portfolio involves not only ambulance, relief, and humanitarian services, but also training and education of different targeted social categories, such as schoolchildren, employees, and the youth.
The first of its kind between QRC and Q-Post, the agreement reflects the keenness of major state institutions to play a stronger role in community development.
