40 years and not once this buttermilk tap has gone dry in Qatar

For over 40 years, Sheikh Ghanem al Thani's charity buttermilk tap is still running at his mansion.

The tap offering fresh buttermilk as well as cold water was installed at the mansion of Sheikh Ghanem bin Ali al Thani just opposite Radisson Blu hotel (Ramada).

The buttermilk tap is available from 7:30 am until 3 pm.

Sheikh Ghanem, who owns a cattle farm outside Doha, has been offering fresh buttermilk for free for more than 40 years now.

Around 2,000 litres of milk is brought in to the mansion by dawn every day for preparing buttermilk.

The buttermilk tank then is filled up to be ready for the public.

The buttermilk tap also helps in quenching the thirst, especially in summer, of passersby or anyone who can't afford it.

Sheikh Ghanem, who owns the Almaha dairy, also distributes butter and other dairy products for free to the public during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Sheikh Ghanem also distributes buttermilk at labour camps in Industrial Area during Ramadan andputs up Iftar tents for low-income expatriates.
