Qatar Fund for Development
The Qatar Fund for Development (acronym: QFFD, Arabic: صندوق قطر للتنمية) is a government entity in the State of Qatar, which is responsible for Qatar's international development and foreign aid; it was established by Law 19 of 2002. The QFFD also coordinates Qatar's charitable and development institutions and the Director-General is Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari. 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. Qatar has also pledged to help Rohingya refugees in Malaysia using the money from the QFFD.
