Qatar Charity (QC) marked World Children’s Day, which is celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare.This year, the celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child is very important, especially as it comes under exceptional circumstances due to the continuing outbreak of the coronavirus, which has brought many obstacles to children. This pandemic has led to economic problems that have affected children badly, while millions of other orphaned children, as well as those from poor families, may have to enter into the labor market due to the negative impact of the covid-19. Child LaborAccording to the International Labor organization, more than 152 million children are engaged in the labor market globally, and 72 million of them carry out hazardous work, face challenging situations and work for longer hours.Qatar Charity is among the most important international organizations attaching significant attention to orphan care by providing quality education, shelter, and all other requirements to help them continue their study. Qatar Charity also provides educational services to students in disaster-hit areas, as well as in poor communities, across the globe.  ‘Rofaqa’ Initiative  Qatar Charity is one of the world’s largest orphan sponsors, with more than 175,000 children sponsored in three continents through its ‘Rafaqa,’ a global humanitarian initiative concerned with orphan care.Qatar Charity provides comprehensive care for orphans in the health, educational, and social fields. It has built Sheikha Aisha bint Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Attiyah Model Orphans City in Sudan. The work at Taiba Education City, implemented by Qatar Charity, is nearing completion. It aims to provide comprehensive care for 600 orphans and is expected to benefit 6,600 orphans and their families in the areas south of Khartoum State.The Khubaib Bin Adi (R) Orphanage accommodates hundreds of orphans and students in Bangladesh, where Qatar Charity also has other orphanages. Excellence AwardQatar Charity (QC) won the Orphan Care Excellence Award (Kafel) for the current year, from the Regional Network for Social Responsibility in co-operation with regional and international organisations and bodies. Qatar Charity received the award during its participation in the activities of the 3rd World Conference on Orphan Care 2020, which was organised remotely, for its role in supporting comprehensive orphan care services in the social, health, educational, and entertainment fields.Education in EmergenciesIn the education field, Qatar Charity works in more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia, and Europe. The protection of education in crisis-affected zones is among Qatar Charity's most significant work areas, as it seeks to provide quality education in many countries and refugee camps.Concerning education in emergencies, Qatar Charity works on establishing, furnishing, and repairing educational institutions, providing school bags, textbooks, and tuition fees, and offering e-learning services to ensure quality education for all. For example, it has provided free education for returnee children in Somalia.Qatar Charity implemented projects and provided aid in support of education during crises and disasters at the cost of more than 64 million Qatari riyals between 2019 and 2020.E-LearningQatar Charity has printed one million textbooks and distributed 10 million textbooks to schoolchildren in 2019 and 2020.As the lack of recognition of academic certificates in the conflict-hit Syria posed a great challenge to the education sector, Qatar Charity, in partnership with the World Refugee School (WRS), designed an e-learning project to provide internationally recognized certificates to children.  For this purpose, Qatar Charity designed an integrated digital platform and digital labs in schools to do assignments.Baby Care Qatar Charity, with support from the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), has implemented a health project for pregnant women in Lebanon. The project offers free healthcare services to underprivileged pregnant Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

This Collection is part of the 'Tsunami disaster channel', where after such a disaster, affected families will inevitably have to rebuild not only their homes but also their livelihoods. There is a lack of support from the international community to help guide families into rebuilding their lives, as well as a lack of direction for how to futurproof their livelihhods and be less vulnarable to such disasters in the future. This Collection conatins a few guidlines, but we encourage the humanitarian community to link prevention and post-disasters guidlines with the goal to communicate such information to a much wider audience. Current guidance comes from leading global organizations:  Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action (ALNAP)Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)Swiss Resource Centre and Consultancies for Development Foundation (SKAT)United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Please send suggestions for additional content for this Collection to info@humanitarianlibrary.org.

  "Providing life-saving support during the pandemic"is the slogan of this year's International Humanitarian Day, which falls on August 19.This day is devoted to remembering the sacrifices and the efforts made by Qatar Charity field teams and other humanitarian institutions around the world to confront this epidemic and limit its spread.At the time when everyone has left their workplace to shelter in their homes, hoping to protect them from the evil of the Coronavirus, which has spread like wildfire around the world, other groups such as doctors, volunteers and humanitarian workers have chosen to provide aid to those affected by this epidemic, although the risks involved.Dr. Mustafa Haj Omar is one of those heroes who contracted the virus as a result of continuing their work to provide humanitarian service to people in an exceptional situation, specifically on the Syrian-Turkish borders.  Dr. Mustafa did not only provide treatment to the affected peoples but he combined medicine and humanitarian work with Qatar Charity, as he is the health official at the Qatar Charity office in Gaziantep, Turkey.With the spread of the disease in Turkey at that time, the Crisis Cell decided to transfer work from the office to the home remotely. After controlling the situation, Dr. Mustafa returned to his workplace and was committed to all safety measures until one of his colleagues in the office became ill with a health condition that was diagnosed with an asymptomatic infection that was treated with some Analgesics, which did not require him to take more precautions towards his sick colleague and continued his work as usual.But his colleague's condition became sour, and it was confirmed that he was infected with the Coronavirus, and from here began Dr. Mustafa's journey with the virus, where he also discovered that he was infected with the disease, which requires complete isolation from his pregnant wife and his three-year-old child.Dr. Mustafa says that the most challenging thing is his daughter's attempt to approach him, but he used to prevent her and try to understand her in a way that suits her.The responsibilities of the doctor were not limited to his small family only during this crisis because he was responsible for implementing the Corona pandemic response projects at Qatar Charity Organization in Syria, which are multiple and varied projects and form an essential part of the response of humanitarian organizations working in the health sector.Due to the responsibility, Dr. Mustafa continued to perform his work remotely with the help of some painkillers, especially since his infection with the virus coincided with the announcement of the first cases of Corona discovered in the regions of northern Syria.A sense of responsibility and a noble humanitarian message did not discourage this heroic humanitarian work and other heroes to continue humanitarian work despite the injury.This pandemic that has begun to wane will inevitably pass, but these inspiring stories will remain stuck in the minds and a source of inspiration for all humanitarian workers.

 "Fournir un soutien vital pendant la pandémie" "... est le slogan de la Journée mondiale de l'aide humanitaire de cette annéeLa journée est consacrée au souvenir des sacrifices et des efforts considérables consentis par les équipes de terrain de Qatar Charity et d'autres institutions humanitaires à travers le monde pour faire face à cette épidémie et limiter sa propagation.Lorsque chacun a quitté son lieu de travail pour se mettre à l'abri chez lui, dans l'espoir de les protéger du mal du coronavirus, qui s'est propagé dans le monde, d'autres groupes, tels que des médecins, des bénévoles et des travailleurs humanitaires, ont choisi de porter assistance aux personnes touchées par cette épidémie, malgré les risques encourus malgré les mesures de précaution suivies.Dr Mustafa Haj Omar fait partie de ces héros qui ont contracté le virus à la suite de la poursuite de leur travail pour fournir un service humanitaire aux personnes dans une situation exceptionnelle, en particulier aux frontières syro-turques.Dr Mustafa n'a pas seulement soigné les personnes infectées, mais il a combiné la médecine et le travail humanitaire avec Qatar Charity, car il est le responsable de la santé au bureau de Qatar Charity à Gaziantep, en Turquie.Avec la propagation de la maladie en Turquie à ce moment-là, la cellule de crise a décidé de transférer le travail du bureau à la maison à distance, mais après avoir contrôlé la situation,  Dr Mustafa est retourné sur son lieu de travail et s'est engagé à prendre toutes les mesures de sécurité jusqu'à ce qu'un de ses collègues du bureau tombe malade avec un problème de santé qui a été diagnostiqué avec une infection symptomatique qui a été traitée avec certains Des analgésiques, qui ne l'obligeaient pas à prendre plus de précautions envers son collègue malade et continuaient son travail comme d'habitude.Mais l'état de son collègue est devenu aigre et il a été confirmé qu'il était infecté par le coronavirus, où il a également découvert qu'il avait la maladie, ce qui nécessite un isolement complet de sa femme enceinte et de son enfant de trois ans. Dr Mustafa dit que le plus difficile est la tentative de sa fille de l'approcher, mais il avait l'habitude de l'empêcher et d'essayer de la comprendre d'une manière qui lui convient.Les responsabilités du médecin ne se sont pas limitées à sa petite famille uniquement pendant cette crise car il était responsable de la mise en œuvre des projets de réponse à la pandémie Corona à Qatar Charity en Syrie.Compte tenu de l'ampleur de la responsabilité, Dr Mustafa a été contraint de subir les épreuves de sa maladie et de continuer à effectuer son travail à distance à l'aide de certains analgésiques, d'autant plus que son infection par le virus a coïncidé avec l'annonce des premiers cas de Corona découverts dans les régions du nord de la Syrie.Le sens des responsabilités et un noble message humanitaire n’ont pas découragé ce travail humanitaire héroïque et d’autres héros de poursuivre l’action humanitaire malgré la maladie.Cette pandémie qui a commencé à décliner passera inévitablement, mais ces histoires inspirantes resteront dans les esprits et une source d'inspiration pour tous les travailleurs humanitaires
