New York, September 23 (QNA) - HE Assistant Foreign Minister Lolwah bint Rashid Al Khater, confirmed today that the initiative launched by Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), entitled "Women in Conflict Zones", aims to support women and girls in conflict and crisis contexts, noting that it will provide women with education, health and economic opportunities.
Her Excellency said, in an exclusive statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA), that it is known to everyone that women in general and girls, and children as well, are the most affected groups in conflict and war contexts in general, pointing out that "Several studies have shown that by supporting women, it is possible to support the resilience of society and its ability to overcome crises, especially since women, in those specific contexts, are often the main breadwinner, and sometimes the only breadwinner for their family, and thus for their small community." Her Excellency considered that, through this support, families and communities in general can be supported, noting Qatar's aspiration to initiate another program under its umbrella to launch many new development initiatives, especially as two initiatives were announced in Afghanistan in the fields of health and education, with the hope that more initiatives will be announced during the coming period, whether in Arab or Islamic countries or other countries around the world.
For his part, HE Director-General of Qatar Fund for Development Khalifa bin Jassim Al-Kuwari, stressed, in a similar statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA), that women in Conflict Zones Initiative is a very significant initiative, adding that the State of Qatar, in general, and Qatar Fund For Development has been working in support of women in conflict zones for many years.
His Excellency explained that this initiative supports the social and economic roles of women in conflict zones, noting what it will achieve for the benefit of many societies in the world. (QNA)
