As many as 36 productive families have participated in a charity bazaar held recently on the sidelines of the Bashair Al Rahma festival at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).
The bazaar was organised by the Sheikh Thani Bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF) in collaboration with QNCC and private sector leader Qatar Chamber.
Earlier this month, HE the Minister of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MoLSA) Dr. Issa Saad al-Jafali al-Nuaimi inaugurated the charity bazaar in the presence of Qatar Chamber vice chairman Mohamed bin Towar al-Kuwari and RAF chairman and general director Dr. Ayed bin Dabssan al-Qahtani.
The participating 36 productive families and the companies supporting them showcased food items, dresses, household items, perfumes, and toys, among others.
Qatar Chamber director general Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi said the chamber provided the opportunity for productive families to showcase their products during the charity bazaar.
He also assured them that the chamber “is very keen” on developing productive families and promoting their products in the local market and during exhibitions held in the country.
Al-Sharqi also noted that Qatar Chamber is supporting productive families to enhance their skills and to help promote and market their products in Qatar and abroad. He said productive families also participated in Qatar Chamber-led expos such as Made in Qatar and Expo Turkey by Qatar.
“Productive families are an important part of the national economy and a true starting point and nucleus for the indigenous small and medium-sized enterprise industry that we aim to develop,” al-Sharqi stressed.
