McDonald’s Qatar, in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior (MoI), celebrated Eid Al-Adha with events on Monday and Tuesday. Activities aimed at recognising and giving back to foreign labourers through fun-filled programmes and entertainment at the Wakra Sports Club and in Asian Town in the Industrial Area of Doha.

The celebrations brought together thousands of expatriate workers of different nationalities. Guests participated in engaging attractions and many took the opportunity to interact with staff of McDonald’s and thanked them for support for Asian workers. Highlights included raffle draws where visitors had a chance to win special prizes. This latest community outreach initiative underscored McDonald’s Qatar’s commitment to corporate social responsibility by giving back to the community under the ministry’s patronage.

“At McDonald’s Qatar we are more than just a store. We are pioneers in charitable endeavours and we remain dedicated to partnering with Qatar’s government to reach out and provide leadership, guidance and support in all matters of philanthropy. We also remain committed to fostering a corporate culture that inspires our employees to volunteer and participate in community service programmes. “We believe that it’s important to empower our staff to bring positive changes in the lives of people every day,” said Kamal Saleh AlMana, Managing Director, AlMana Restaurants & Food Co. — owner and operator of McDonald’s restaurants in Qatar.
