 ROTA Ramadan Project is an exciting volunteer-oriented community project that will be carried out during the Holy Month of Ramadan and will provide help to needy people in Qatar.

This initiative reflects ROTA's efforts to foster team spirit and community welfare among the volunteers and other members of the society.These Ramadan packages have had a great impact in helping many families get through the month in previous years. It has also "helped the local community understand better the different conditions people who are less fortunate endure, as well as become more involved and active in improving these living conditions through volunteer work", said Hazem Idriss, Volunteers Specialist at ROTA.
