DOHA: As a part of a series of fundraising activities held by Reach Out to Asia (Rota) this Ramadan, Rota placed a “My Education… My Hope” kiosk in the Virgin Mega Store at Villaggio for the entire month of Ramadan and leading up to Eid.
Seventy volunteers gathered at the kiosk to sell merchandise to support Rota and entertain children with games and arts and crafts activities. A special guest appearance was also made by Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani, a Rota campaign Ambassador.
“I would like to thank Virgin Mega Stores for their full support and commitment during the busy time of Ramadan, it was a pleasure working with them, and we look forward to working together on future projects, said Rota’s Executive Director, Essa Al Mannai.
“We would like to thank Rota for choosing Virgin Megastores for activating this inspiring and delightful program. It has been our pleasure to help serve and support their cause in any way we can. We want them to know that we value such partnerships and we wish their company the success that it deserves in its aim to improve the lives of others, stated Nassim Goraieb, Marketing Manager of Virgin Megastore Middle East.
Since the launch of this campaign, a number of generous financial contributions have been made to help Rota support urgently needed educational projects in five neighbouring countries: Palestine, Yemen, Pakistan, Nepal, and Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
Also we would like to thank the One stores in Landmark and Villaggio, they were also big supporters of this campaign, selling Rota merchandise to help raise funds for ‘My Education … My Hope’. All the proceeds of sales will go a long way to supporting these projects, and will help spread the word about Rota’s mission and work.
