About us

The Society is one of the leading humanitarian organizations in Qatar which pledges to work towards increasing public awareness about cancer and cancer prevention at local, regional as well as international levels whenever possible.

Our story

The Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) was founded in 1997 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani and is chaired by H.E. Sheikh Dr. Khalid Bin Jabor Al Thani.

This humanitarian organization is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of cancer and focuses on the implementation of awareness and prevention programs aimed at informing the public and healthcare professionals on the disease itself. QCS reaches out to cancer patients, survivors and their families to help alleviate distress and suffering as well as help facilitate recovery through both emotional, as well as monetary, support.

Recently, the Qatar Cancer Society has undergone rebranding in order to make a statement in its commitment and strengthening its resolve through its vision and strategy in the fight against cancer. Numerous local, as well as multinational, organizations have demonstrated their commitment to the cause by partnering with the Society and offering their support through different pledges. These pledges mean a lot to us and to the community at large as QCS operates solely through donations from supporters.

We look forward to partnering with many more individuals and organizations as we advance in our goal of creating awareness, saving lives and ensuring a better and brighter future full of hope for any and everyone whose lives have been effected by cancer.
