On Thursday, the Embassy of the State of Qatar in Cairo organized an iftar celebration on the occasion of Arab Orphan Day, in the presence of more than 200 orphan boys and girls, in coordination with a number of civil society organizations and care homes, and in the presence of a number of the most important political and artistic figures, officials of civil society organizations, and a number of members of the House of Representatives.

Ambassador Tariq Al-Ansari, Ambassador of the State of Qatar and its Permanent Representative to the League of Arab States to the Arab Republic of Egypt, delivered a speech in which he welcomed the guests and pointed to the strength of Egyptian-Qatari cooperation on the humanitarian level, stressing that both countries share many common cultures and customs, including celebrating Orphan Day annually to provide attention. For these children, they represent the future of countries.

Al-Ansari added that the aim of the celebration is to make children feel the societal presence around them, and to send a message that we care about them, especially in the holy month of Ramadan, saying: Ramadan in Egypt is another need…and in Qatar, Ramadan is another need. Both countries enjoy many common customs in Ramadan, the most prominent of which is care.
