Vodafone Takes Part in the Giving Spirit of Ramadan
21 August, 2010: In the giving spirit of Ramadan, Vodafone Qatar has been participating in a number of charitable and community activities.
Vodafone sponsored Ramadan Iftar tents, organised by Qatar Charity, have been feeding as many as 2,500 people in need for free a night at locations in New Doha and Al Khor.
The air-conditioned Iftar tents attract a large number of labourers who would otherwise find it difficult to buy and prepare food during Ramadan. Vodafone Qatar employees have been volunteering in the Iftar tents throughout the month of Ramadan, and have been honoured and humbled by their experience.
Also in the giving spirit of the holy month of Ramadan, Vodafone Qatar volunteers have been distributing free Iftar boxes containing dates and water to motorists and passers-by, helping them break their fast. The boxes are distributed every Tuesday and Thursday at the Airport traffic signal and TV roundabout from 5 to 6 pm.
"We hope our humble charitable activities during this holy month have touched the lives of many people in Qatar. Vodafone is committed to making a world of difference for all the people in Qatar in everything we do," said Luisa Gentile, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, Vodafone Qatar.
