Rota launches Ramadan charity project
Doha, June 30, 2013
Qatar-based non-profit organisation Reach Out To Asia (Rota), has launched its Ramadan 2013 Project sponsored by oil and gas producer Occidental Petroleum of Qatar (Oxy Qatar).
As part of the Ramadan project, volunteers will pack and distribute supplies of rice, oil, milk, flour and other basic food items to families in need.
Rota volunteers will also renovate the homes of two families, which will include home maintenance, repainting and new furniture.
Rota will also be hosting three Community Iftar events during the month with community-based institutions who work with people with special needs, said George Tavola, volunteer program manager.
Rota volunteers will be celebrating the joy of Garangao, a festival marked uniquely by children in the Gulf, with the Children’s Rehabilitation Centre and the Hamad Hospital Pediatric Unit, he said.
“Our Ramadan 2013 Project is a true manifestation of Rota's social responsibilities and willingness to strengthen the bonds between different elements in society and particularly with disadvantaged families and those with special needs, said Essa Al Mannai, executive director.
“With the financial sponsorship from Oxy Qatar, Rota will again look to make a positive impact in many lives this Ramadan,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
