Qatar Charity, the largest voluntary organisation in Qatar, is to deploy a messaging platform from software solution and wireless application provider Javna. The IT firm said the charity will use the messaging platform to improve both its communication with donors and its internal operations. Users will be able to make donations to the charity via the messaging platform, Javna said. “We are keen on making available all possible means of comfort for donors from institutions and individuals,” said Khalid Al Hammadi, director of administrative and financial affairs at the Qatar Authority for Charitable Activities. “We are fully aware of the hardship some might face when they have to come to the headquarters to contribute to one of our field activities so we wanted to spare them that.” This is the second technology initiative Qatar Charity has undertaken to boost donor levels: the voluntary organisation also provides for people to make donations via ATM through an agreement with Qatar Islamic Bank. The platform will also enable the charity to enhance communication between its employees and offices around the world via SMS, Javna said. In addition to its locally based work, Qatar Charity, which works in various areas including education, has activities in more than 40 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe. The wireless system provided by Javna comprises seven applications including Epicenter-DAC, which enables the identification of SMS; Epicenter Microsoft Outlook Module, which notifies employees through SMS of emails they receive; and Epicenter Mobile Donation. Founded in 2001, Javna is a privately held company with operations in Jordan and Qatar serving the Middle East, and in Florida, US for the rest of the world. The company states on its website that it is aiming to become the premier wireless software solutions firm in the Middle East and Europe.
