I would like to thank al khaliji, on behalf of our center and beneficiaries, for their support and partnership as we multiply our efforts in serving the elderly in Qatar and ensuring that they are duly honored and recognized by their society and community. We are confident in that this is one of many partnerships to come with al khaliji.”
