Praise for Khayr Qatarna at local and regional exhibitions
Sahtak Awalan – Your Health First has been praised both locally and regionally for the huge success of its Khayr Qatarna initiative, having been showcased at three high-profile exhibitions.
The latest was at The Education Conference 2019: Education Makes a Difference, held under the patronage of H.E Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, Prime Minister of Qatar and Minister of Interior, at Qatar National Convention Centre.
The Khayr Qatarna exhibit was visited by H.E the Minister for Education and Higher Education, Dr. Mohammed Abdul Al-Hammadi, along with Ms. Fawzia Abdulaziz Al-Khater, Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education. Both were very impressed by the scale and success of the Khayr Qatarna initiative, especially the fact that it has a strong educational facet that integrates into schools’ curriculums, and that so much high-quality produce had been grown in greenhouses sited at local high schools.
Khayr Qatarna has also been showcased at the Agro-Food Oman expo, attended by thousands of people and senior figures in commerce and government, including H.H Mohamed bin Salim Al Said, Chief of Protocol at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Oman, and H.E Ambassador Ali Bin Fahad Falah Al Hajri Shahwani, Qatar’s Ambassador to Oman, both of whom showed great interest in the program.
Finally, Khayr Qatarna was represented at Agriteq last month, the region’s leading agricultural innovations exhibition. H.E Abdulla bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Minister of Municipality and Environment, heard about the valuable work the program is doing in schools teaching students about sustainability and healthy lifestyles, while contributing to Qatar’s food security.
