Vodafone Qatar and Qatar Charity Sign Partnership Agreement
15 August, 2010: Vodafone Qatar and Qatar Charity signed a partnership agreement that would see the two organisations work together to create and implement charitable and socially beneficial initiatives.
‘Vodafone Qatar is proud to be partnering with Qatar Charity that have done a lot of good in Qatar and around the world, and see our partnership as another important step towards living our purpose of making a world of difference for all the people in Qatar," said Mr. Grahame Maher, CEO, Vodafone Qatar.
"Vodafone Qatar has a very good Corporate Social Responsibility record and we're pleased to be partnership with them. Through our partnership with Vodafone we will be able to reach many needy people around the world," said Mr. Issam Adawi, Director of Programmes, Qatar Charity
An example of this partnership can be seen every day during the holy month of Ramadan. Vodafone Qatar, among other sponsors, is sponsoring two Qatar Charity organised Iftar tents located in Al Khor and the New Doha Area. The Iftar tents help the less fortunate overcome the hardships of buying and preparing food in Ramadan, and promote a spirit of solidarity, love and compassion among the members of the community.
The air-conditioned Iftar tents attract a large number of labourers from around Doha and feed about 1600 people daily. Vodafone Qatar employees are volunteering in the Iftar tents throughout the month of Ramadan.
