Ooredoo has announced that its #SharingOurBest campaign raised around QR 500,000 for charity during the Holy Month. The campaign included events and activities with the community, the distribution of food boxes to the needy, and encouraged the public to donate to charity via Ooredoo’s nationwide network of Self-Service Machines and award-winning Nojoom programme.

Ramadan is all about taking part in the spirit of the Holy Month and we couldn’t have asked for a better reaction. Together we’ve given back to the community, and helped charities to continue the work they do throughout the year.”

With the doubled donations, members of the Nojoom Loyalty Programme successfully raised an impressive QR 232,400 worth of Nojoom Points for charities, with the additional bonus from Ooredoo resulting in nearly QR500,000 for charity. As well as the funds raised through Nojoom, Ooredoo’s popular Self-Service Machines received QR 2,270,758 for charities during the Holy Month. In addition to charitable donations, the colourful characters of the Alrabaa and Ooredoo volunteers took part in a wide range of activities throughout Ramadan, including visits to hospitals, appearances at local malls, random acts of kindness and events for local charities. 

During the period, Ooredoo distributed more than 1,000 dates and water packs to families on the Corniche, 600 Iftar meals, and 1,000 Garangao gifts at Souq Waqif. Ooredoo has pledged to continue to support its customers throughout the year, with a host of local CSR initiatives as part of its mission to enrich people’s lives.
