Kulluna, the national health and safety awareness campaign, recently held a celebratory event at The Sharq Village and Spa to thank its media supporters for their contribution to making the campaign a success.

As an active community partner, ConocoPhillips became the founding sponsor of the Kulluna Health and Safety campaign. Identified as an important outreach activity, Kulluna reflects ConocoPhilips SPIRIT values which focus on health and safety and support the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the National Development Strategy. In partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation and Hamad International Training Centre, Kulluna has become one of the largest community investments ConocoPhillips makes in Qatar.

It makes me proud to see how Kulluna has grown, and it could not have been possible without the support of every member of the Kulluna family”, he said.

ConocoPhillips Qatar President, Gary Sykes commented on the event, “As founding sponsor of Kulluna, we are proud to celebrate this milestone with the media. They are an invaluable part of the Kulluna family and actively contribute to the campaign’s success; helping to equip community members with the knowledge to be healthy and safe. Our core values of health and safety are completely aligned with those of HMC and HITC, and we are committed to supporting this important initiative.”
