Ooredoo has announced its participation in the upcoming ‘2017 Qatar CSR Exhibition and Conference’, to showcase the company’s growing number of CSR activities for students and visitors.
The event is being organised by Qatar University and Qatar CSR Network and will take place on the university campus from March 20 to 21.
Ooredoo said it sponsors and supports a host of CSR-based initiatives across Qatar, including building and operating the Fahad Bin Jassim Kidney Centre, which supports kidney patients in Qatar and the new state-of-the-art Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre.
Working towards 2030 Qatar National Vision, Ooredoo’s main CSR goals are focused on health, education, and fitness, working with the community to enrich people’s lives and raise awareness on these issues.
As well as displaying its CSR initiatives via a dedicated Ooredoo booth, the company hopes to inspire students to take part and volunteer in more CSR-based activities in Qatar throughout the year.
Fatima Sultan al-Kuwari, director of community and public relations at Ooredoo Qatar, said: “Volunteering for charitable causes is an amazing thing to do and will give students real working experience, something all employers look for.
“We hope our presence at the 2017 CSR Exhibition and Conference will spark future collaborations between Ooredoo and other Qatari organisations, as well as demonstrate and educate people on the huge year-round initiatives we hold for Qatar and its people.”
