Chevron Phillips Chemical International Qatar Holdings LLC (Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar) has announced a donation of over QR 50,000 to local nonprofit animal organisation 2nd Chance Rescue Qatar (2nd Chance Rescue), as it continues to support and sponsor local community projects across the country.
The cheque was presented by Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar Human Resources Manager Ricardo Costa to 2nd Chance Rescue founder Abdulla al-Naemi, and was the second donation made to the charity this year as the companies work together to tackle the issue of animal welfare across the country. The donation will be used to maintain the upkeep of 2nd Chance Rescue Qatar’s facilities, as well as fund the organisation's educational programme, which visits schools throughout the country to teach students about animal care and conduct.
Abdulla al-Naemi, founder of 2nd Chance Rescue, said: “For us, sponsorship is not just about the money but the support. Knowing that companies like Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar believe in our cause and want to help us raise awareness and continue what we’re doing is indescribable. With the ever-growing population of stray and abused animals on our doorstep, the task can seem daunting, but thanks to this sponsorship we can keep growing and saving more animals in need.”
Costa said, “At Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar, we believe that real benefits can be gained by establishing effective relationships in our communities. 2nd Chance Rescue is doing a wonderful job taking in and educating Qatar’s population on stray and abandoned animals, and we’re happy we could help contribute to this cause.” For more information on 2nd Chance Rescue Qatar visit www.facebook.com/2ndchancerescueqatar
