QTips, a web based community channel which provides weekly episodes on ‘Bite sized cultural Qatari tips’ is hosted by Khalifa Al Haroon aka Mr. Q and Hamad Al Amari aka The Qatari Guy. Alrayyan TV was visiting us on the set at ILQ headquarters to get an insight about the making of the show.
In a world riddled with questions of identity, roots and origins, it becomes imperative to have a modern take on what drives us. #WeChooseQatar (We Choose Qatar) is a Doha based campaign that zooms in on the lives of the developing gulf state of Qatar and it’s residents. Locals and expats interact everyday in a place they call home.
The creators of the project Viennese filmmaker Alex Klim and Egyptian radio personality Nabil Al Nashar are co-producing this project, inspired by their many years living in Qatar. Coming soon! Like, share and leave your comments.

Qatar Diabetes Association (QDA), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), in collaboration with Sasol Qatar, has introduced new educational tools intended to reduce the fear and anxiety often associated with diabetes in young children.
Custom-made for QDA, Salem and Sarah are plush characters developed to provide educational support and comfort for children living with type 1 diabetes in Qatar and across the region; an initiative that supports Qatar Foundation in its mission to be a catalyst for change by leveraging its experiences, knowledge and capabilities.
