Ooredoo has extended support to the Qatar Cancer Society’s (QCS) activities, as part of its corporate social responsibility programme and in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 to focus on human factor and invest in human health.
The donation is Ooredoo’s contribution to achieving QCS’s vision to be a community partnership platform to make Qatar a leader in cancer prevention and its burden control.
Dr Dera al-Dosari, director of Resources Development Department at QCS, thanked Ooredoo for the kind gesture of supporting the organisation, pointing to the previous co-operation between the two parties in raising public awareness of cancer through the establishment of the Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre in 2017.
He affirmed that QCS will continue efforts to achieve its mission to prevent cancer and control its burden in Qatar by working with its partners to educate the community. It aims to support, empower and advocate individuals living with cancer and to engage in professional development and scientific research in the field of cancer, pointing to the importance of community partnerships in fighting cancer.
He stressed that addressing cancer requires concerted efforts and constant co-operation between all institutions and agencies in the country as QCS cannot operate in isolation.
Sabah Rabiah al-Kuwari, director, Public Relations at Ooredoo, added, “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate, a commitment which is an integral part of our corporate social responsibility strategy as we work towards achieving Qatar National Vision 2030. Healthcare is vital to the wellbeing of our communities, and in particular, supporting the most vulnerable members, and we’re proud to be working with Qatar Cancer Society in their efforts to fight cancer and take care of patients and their families.”
