In line with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme and on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, Mall of Qatar (MoQ), in collaboration with Wa’hab, has been spearheading an initiative to provide 300 kits to labourers across Qatar, enabling them to overcome the current challenges and enjoy the Eid moments.
The kits included food materials and personal hygiene items, and were well-packed and delivered to the labourers with the highest standards of safety and sanitation, MoQ said in a statement. This initiative supports labourers and less privileged communities to enjoy the happy moments of the holy occasion.
Emile Sarkis, general manager, Mall of Qatar, said: “With Eid al-Fitr coming closer, we extend our sincere congratulations to all Muslims and to the people of Qatar. We pride ourselves in contributing to the effort to provide appropriate support to those who are in need and make a difference in their lives. This initiative is part of our CSR programme and that reflects the values of solidarity in the community."
The CSR programme "is at the core of Mall of Qatar’s business model, and the mall executes several educational, awareness and social initiatives that give back to the community and contribute in achieving sustainable development", the statement added.
Wardah Mamukoya, founder and managing director of Wa’hab, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Mall of Qatar and thank them for their generous contribution. Together, we can help make a real difference and support the vulnerable communities to highlight our commitment to their wellbeing. The spirit of Ramadan is enhanced by sharing our food and blessings with those around us and these actions clearly demonstrate the collaboration and solidarity of the community here in Qatar."
