Doha: Within the context of its support for community institutions during Ramadan, Qatar Petroleum International Company (QPI) donated devices and equipment to Sheikh Eid Charity Association.
The donation included laptops, screens and accessories and office equipment.
Nasser Khalil Al Jaidah, CEO, QPI, Ali bin Saeed Al Hawl Al Marri, Chairman, Qatar Guest Center (an affiliate of the association), Hamad Abdul Wahid Al Hammadi, Group Manager Corporate Services, QPI, and Hazem Ahmed Al Marei, Director, Qatar Guest Center, met at QPI’s head office in Towers in Dafna and reviewed issues future cooperation, support and existing projects.
Al Jaidah said: “We are pleased to collaborate with an entity that has a strong institutional experience in humanitarian work like the association. The initiative is the first of its kind whereby QPI provides in-kind donations to one of the community institutions. Our donation will not be the last as the company will continue this pursuit.
“Our support to community institutions stems from our belief in the importance of this sector and the role played by these institutions in serving, supporting, developing and prospering the community”.
He called upon companies to follow suit through support instead of limiting it to financial contribution only. In this way, available resources can be fully utilised for the benefit of society as a whole.
Al Marri thanked QPI and praised its role in supporting humanitarian activities and development in Qatar.
He highlighted the partnership the association has adopted with all sectors of society, especially private companies and traders and said the association’s initiatives can benefit the whole society.
Initiatives include training for orphans after the end of their guardianship and their orientation to the labour market. It guarantees social security through knowing the behavioural history of orphans and monitoring their behaviour from childhood to adulthood.
The initiative has been appreciated on official and public levels. Introducing expats to the tolerance of Islam and the culture and language of the Qatari society represents a source of social security for our homeland.
Our religious, social, and moral responsibility makes it imperative upon us to diffuse the Arab and Islamic identity, where Qatar has become a popular destination for tourists and workers from all parts of the world.
The association will benefit from the devices and equipment by using or selling them and utilising proceeds to support its welfare projects including education, health, economic empowerment, and combating poverty and its outreach projects.The Peninsula
