Since the launch of the “For the Sake of Qatar” in March campaign more than 35,000 citizens and residents have stepped forward to volunteer in Qatar’s fight against COVID-19.
Volunteers are screened by the Volunteer Center and successful applicants are then grouped according to whether or not they have medical qualifications/background. Training has been given to thousands of volunteers via more than 125 workshops. The volunteers’ duties include supporting with clinical medical practice, allied health practice, public health awareness, and logistics, in health centers across the country.
“This is a difficult time for our nation and the world, and I wanted to give my time to help the government and Qatar fight coronavirus. I was born in Qatar and the country has given me a lot. I believe volunteering is one of the ways in which I can repay Qatar for what I have always received from the nation. As soon as this program was announced, I registered as a volunteer.”

“We are in a very crucial period, and giving back to the community is important, especially so we can help the elderly who are among those most affected by COVID-19.”
