This year, Qatar Museums (QM) and IDAM celebrate and encourage the spirit of giving in the holy month of Ramadan by donating 5% of IDAM’s Suhour menu price to the Doha-based Sheikh Eid Charitable Association.
Located in the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA), with spectacular views of the Doha skyline, IDAM offers a memorable Ramadan experience with a specially designed Suhour menu and a tribute to the tradition of hospitality and generosity in support of those directly affected by poverty or crisis in the Gulf and Middle East region.
An organisation close to QM, the Sheikh Eid Charitable Association dedicates its efforts to bringing aid to the needy, and to promoting voluntary pursuits in the community. Working effortlessly to improve the quality of people’s lives, the charity has a truly global reach spanning from Qatar to several areas of the world. It has played a fundamental role in international relief efforts; most recently providing aid for the Nepal earthquake victims in April 2015.
Commenting on the importance of the initiative, Mansoor bin Ebrahim Al Mahmoud, Acting Chief Executive Officer at QM, said:
We are pleased to be partaking in a truly worthy cause in the spirit of the Holy month of Ramadan, supporting the Sheikh Eid Charitable Association in its commendable efforts to help those who are less fortunate. At Qatar Museums, it is our aim to help enriching the quality of people’s lives, and supporting philanthropic causes across the region, in order to achieve a better future for generations to come.’
In line with the Qatar National Vision 2030, QM continues working towards supporting human development through a broad spectrum of initiatives including arts, education and philanthropy. Since its foundation in 2005, QM has overseen the development of the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA), Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, and the Al Zubarah World Heritage Site Visitor Centre. The QM also manages the QM Gallery at Katara Cultural Village, the ALRIWAQ DOHA Exhibition Space and the Fire Station: Artists in Residence. Future projects include the launch of the highly anticipated National Museum of Qatar and the 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum.
