Vodafone and Qatar Charity teamed up throughout the holy month of Ramadan to spread joy with four volunteering visits to hospital patients, children and the elderly. 

Vodafone employees visited Hamad General Hospital and handed out date boxes and recharge cards to accident patients to help them contact their families abroad. At Hamad Al Wakra Hospital, children celebrated Garangao night with a magic show, face painting and lots of Garangao sweets. Women at Hamad Women’s Hospital with new born babies were greeted with flowers and gifts and at the Seniors Rehabilitation Centre, seniors were greeted with dates and gifts. “It gives me great pride to see our employees selflessly volunteering to do good for the community. As a company, we are in a unique position to have so many amazing employees that everyday reflect the Vodafone spirit. Empowering employees to do good and supporting employee charity initiatives is one of our core beliefs at Vodafone.”

Vodafone has a long history working with Qatar Charity and we thank them for the opportunities they share with us to give back to the community,” said Dana Haidan, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Vodafone Qatar. Vodafone Qatar’s employee volunteering programme “Kafu” was launched in 2015 and has since seen many of their employees put in hundreds of volunteering hours both in Qatar and abroad. Vodafone’s corporate volunteering scheme allows its employees to take two days paid leave every year to participate in volunteering activities.
