Commitment, care and charity means a lot to Qatar Airways Cargo. The success of the first two chapters of the WeQare programme demonstrated it very well.

Chapter 1, “One Million Kilos” launched in July 2020 and led the way by providing the free transport of 1m kilos of humanitarian aid and medical equipment to charitable organisations.

As for Chapter 2, “Rewild the Planet”, Qatar Airways Cargo committed to preserve wildlife and endangered animals and to transport them back to their natural habitat free of charge.

Aware of the importance of perpetuating this solidarity, the cargo carrier recently announced Chapter 3, Let’s Stand Together.

Through this new chapter, Qatar Airways Cargo wanted to convey the idea that together we can achieve great things.

For this chapter, the company organised a collection of in kind donations for children.

The donation drive focused on three aspects: education, sports and fun.

Thus, Qatar Airways Cargo collected study material (books, school bags, pencils), clothes and sports items (socks, soccer balls, sneakers, jerseys) as well as toys, musical instruments and board games.

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways, said: “Children are the future generation and we hope that they bloom and develop to their full potential.

“Not all children are born with the same opportunities, but every child has the right to dream.

“To make their dreams a reality, Qatar Airways Cargo wanted to gather forces to support this next generation in need, by sending them toys, educational materials and sports items so that all children can enjoy their childhood.”

The collection of the donations was rolled out worldwide, and was open for business partners, friends, families and anyone who was willing to participate in the great movement of solidarity.

The success of the project went beyond all expectations.

Donations were received from over 50 cities around the world and close to 250 staff of the airline helped in sorting the items before packing them and then assisted with the distribution.

Nearly 300 boxes and crates of donations were received and distributed.
