Vodafone’s World Calling Club Continues to Touch People
5 July, 2010: Vodafone Qatar touched the lives of 7 more people when it handed them each a cheque for QR 10,000 for being last week's lucky winners of its World Calling Club competition.
The winners were named as:
- Mr. Ajanthan Murugananthan from Sri Lanka
- Mr. Sayed Mohammed from Egypt
- Mr. Ahmad Ali from Syria
- Mr. Jivan Gurung from Nepal
- Mr. Abdul Tawab Al-Sayed Ahmed Badawi from Egypt
- Mr. Amid Al- Badawi from Lebanon
- Mr. Ellie Ziade from Lebanon
The winners were greeted at Vodafone's Al Furousiya store by Mr. John Tombleson, Vodafone Qatar's Chief Financial Officer and Ms. Cindy Moussa , Head of Consumer Marketing at Vodafone Qatar, who were both moved by the winners stories.
"I feel privileged to be meeting Vodafone's World Calling Club competition winners and humbled by the knowledge that the money Vodafone has handed over will make a world of difference to their lives and to their family's lives," said Mr. John Tombleson.
Mr. Murugananthan, who works in a bakery, was surprised and filled up with emotions upon hearing the good news and said he will use the money to renovate his house in Sri Lanka. Mr. Gurung, a Vodafone customer for 5 months who chose to join Vodafone because of their great international calling rates said he will send the money back home to Nepal to pay for his children's education. Whereas Ellie Ziade, a Chef who has been living in Qatar for two and a half years, said the money will go towards starting his own business in his home country of Lebanon.
To date Vodafone has given away a total of QR 330,000 to 33 winners, many of whom upon being told that they won the money broke down in tears, screamed in delight or became speechless because of the huge positive difference this was going to make to their lives.
Many more existing and new Vodafone customers who make an international call from now until the end of July 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.
