The Ministry of Social Development and Family is preparing to commemorate 'Family Day in Qatar,' which takes place on April 15 each year, to highlight the importance of the family and its vital role in the development and construction process.

HE Maryam bint Ali bin Nasser Al Misnad, Minister of Social Development and Family, stated in a statement on the occasion that Qatar has always been a pioneer in creating a day to celebrate the family, which is the backbone of society and its stable nucleus.

Her Excellency emphasized that the wise leadership's interest in the family stems from their belief in the family's centrality in national development and that the advancement of the family is the advancement of society, which is achieved through concerted efforts to support and care for it, as well as to protect its security, stability, and cohesion.

The minister emphasized that social development is a key component of Qatar's National Vision 2030, which reflects the country's wise leadership's desire to create an effective system of social protection for all Qataris, one that protects their rights, values their active participation in the national development process, and dedicates their complementary roles in this process, all of which are based on the importance of family.

Al Misnad also stated that the ministry is currently working on developing innovative strategies and interactive methodologies directed at families and their members, as well as tools for collecting and analyzing relevant data and statistics in order to implement government programs, plans, and policies designed to promote societal growth by emphasizing the importance of family stability and its humanitarian and human rights outcomes.

The ministry's Family Day in Qatar program includes a variety of activities in attendance and through various communication platforms, as well as strengthening cooperation with various partners to commemorate this occasion, which provides an additional opportunity to highlight the roles of all institutions in the country in supporting the process of development and community building within the framework of Qatar National Vision 2030.

To celebrate the event, the ministry will illuminate its buildings in green, providing a chance to emphasize the importance of family cohesion and the shared duty that all members of the family bear towards themselves and the country's society.

The program also includes a parallel electronic awareness campaign via the ministry's accounts, specifically on Twitter and Instagram, as well as a sports and entertainment event for school students in collaboration with the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy's 'Generation Amazing,' in the Lusail area.

With the arrival of Ramadan, the Ministry of Social Development and Family launched a multi-faceted innovative initiative called 'Yalla Namshi' through the ministry's social media accounts, with the goal of reviving and sustaining a societal sports custom that Qataris have always practiced and associated with the holy month of Ramadan, represented in the sport of walking before breakfast time in public parks and malls.

This initiative relied on artificial intelligence to provide it with the scientific calculation that stimulates competition by setting a time limit for walking that brings together members of the same family (mother, father, wife, sons, grandfather, and grandmother) in commercial complexes on the basis of achieving at least 10,000 collective steps per day and receiving generous prizes allocated by the Ministry of Social Development and Family, while taking co-operative measures.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Thani, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar, said that the company is proud to collaborate with the Ministry of Social Development and Family on this initiative because practicing walking as a family strengthens family relationships and contributes to the cohesion of its members, in addition to maintaining health and activity, especially during the holy month.
