Vodafone Qatar Makes a World of Difference to the Lives of 6 People

14 June, 2010:  Vodafone Qatar has made a world of difference in the lives of 6 of its customers when it handed them QR10,000 each for being the week's lucky winners of Vodafone's World Calling Club competition. 

The winners were named as:

Mr. Punthottathil Yousaf from India

Mr. Abdul Saiben from the Philippines

Mr. Amir Ahmed from Sudan

Mr. Charlie Hinayon from the Philippines

Mr. Uwanath Jayashantha Miriyalla from Sri Lanka

Mr. Islam Anwar from Egypt

A delighted Mr. Hinayon, who works as a driver, said that after years of not visiting his homeland in the Philippines, he now could finally go and visit his family and give them the money.

Mr. Anwar, who works as a butcher, was overwhelmed by his win and said he could now fulfill his short-term dream of getting married in Egypt. Whereas Mr. Miriyalla said he will send the money back home to Sri-Lanka to build his family home.

After handing the winners their cheques, Mr. Daniel Horan, Vodafone Qatar's Director-Commercial Business Unit said, " I'm honoured to see that the money we've handed out today is going to make a significant positive difference in the lives of the winners. With Vodafone's World Calling Club, Vodafone looks forward to bringing many more of our customers closer to home with  great everyday international calling rates and fantastic prize draws."

Many more existing and new Vodafone customers who make an international call from now until the end of June have the chance to win QR10,000 every day. All customers need to do is get talking to their family and friends because every minute of every international call automatically puts them in the daily draw to win, so the more they talk the more chances they have to win! For example, a 15minute call is equal to 15 entries. Its that easy!

Vodafone Qatar launched its latest amazing international calling campaign, World Calling Club (WCC), on 2 June with international calling rates starting from as low as 55 Dirhams a minute.
