Ooredoo announced teams of volunteers paid a surprise visit to Sidra Medicine’s inpatient hospital as part of its ongoing Ramadan CSR activity schedule.

The Ooredoo volunteers spent time with the young patients at Sidra Medicine, engaging them in storytelling and colouring activities, and surprised them with gifts and gift vouchers. Children also had the opportunity to take photos with hospital staff and Ooredoo volunteers, and the teams of volunteers thanked the staff for all their efforts in looking after their young patients throughout the year.

Speaking about the ongoing Ramadan CSR activity schedule, Manar Khalifa Al-Muraikhi – Director PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo – said: “A key focus of our corporate social responsibility schedule is supporting the communities in which we operate, and Ramadan is the ideal time for us to plan and carry out activities that demonstrate our support in practical ways. We know spending time in hospital can be difficult and stressful for many of us, especially children, so we were delighted to be able to visit young patients at Sidra Medicine and hopefully bring a little cheer to their day.”

We thank them for their thoughtful gifts and activities that brought smiles to our little patients faces. Our engagement is part of an ongoing patient experience program to make our patient’s time with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible.”

Ooredoo will be continuing its schedule of CSR activities until the end of Ramadan and Eid.
