Qatar's US ambassador announced $40 million in grants for education, health and housing projects affected by Hurricane Katrina on top of $60 million the country distributed in May. The envoy, Nasser Bin Hamad al-Kahalifa, who met in Washington Friday with recipients of the grants, said the true legacy of his country's gifts " will last generations. Our intention was to meet emergency needs, yes, but also to express friendship and compassion." Among those attending the ceremony were two children from the Pass Christian, Mississippi Boys and Girls Club, whose clubhouse was destroyed by the hurricane.
