In order to meet their basic needs and provide an environment full of care and attention that ensures their human dignity, the orphaned students who were affected by the earthquake in Turkiye and other orphans around the world will reside in, "Hayat Sehir" City, which will be built in Istanbul, Turkiye, by the Qatar Red Crescent.
The announcement was made at a press conference held by the Qatar Red Crescent at its headquarters, in the presence of several directors and officials from the organisation as well as Faisal Mohamed Al Emadi, acting secretary-general of the organisation, Ayedh Dabsan Al Qahtani, head of the "Hayat Sehir" Project, and Jaber Al Harami, editor-in-chief of Al Sharq Newspaper, the campaign's media partner.
The humanitarian initiative aims to offer children who lost their parents in the Turkiye earthquake and other orphans from various countries around the world a safe, comprehensive, fully equipped, and sustainable shelter in order to lessen their suffering and improve their effective integration into the community, thereby helping to improve their communities and build their capacities.
Faisal Mohamed Al Emadi pointed out that the earthquakes that struck Syria and Turkey in February still leave millions of people suffering, especially orphaned children who lost their parents and other family members in the catastrophe.
In collaboration with appropriate Turkiye organisations, the Qatar Red Crescent will seek to carry out its project. The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) will be established as an implementing partner by cooperating with the Turkish Ministry of Education and coordinating with the Istanbul Municipality. Experienced engineers will be appointed to manage all implementation activities, which will take place over two phases and be supervised by the Qatar Red Crescent office in Turkiye.
