Charity and aid work[edit]

Qatar fund for development has made several partnerships with several of the lead charities in the world.

In May 2017, the QFFD met with UNESCO to discuss the UNESCO Heritage Emergency Fund, which the QFFD helps fund, though other areas of cooperation were also incorporated into the discussion.[6]

Qatar has also pledged to help Rohingya refugees in Malaysia using the money from the QFFD.[7]

On 28 March 2023, a financial agreement has been signed between the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support Syria Civil Defense (“White Helmets”) core activities and maintain life-saving services in Northwest Syria. In order to meet immediate humanitarian demands, the White Helmets will be able to afford the necessary expenses for the deployment of volunteer field teams, the upkeep and operation of search and rescue equipment, and the provision of medical supplies. Several earthquakes that slammed Syria and Turkey caused devastation to the region’s infrastructure as well as thousands of injuries and fatalities. The White Helmets proclaimed a state of emergency in Northwest Syria as soon as the earthquake struck and started to act right away.[9]
