Qatargas has made a financial contribution to the Qatar Red Crescent in support of its sponsorship of needy families and provision of assistance to patients’ activities under their “La’ali Al-Bir” internal project which is strongly linked to Qatargas’ existing social investment programs contributing to the Qatar National Vision 2030.

During a brief ceremony held at Qatargas’ Doha Head Office, Mr. Mansour Rashid Al-Naimi, Qatargas Public Relations Manager, handed over the cheque to Mr. Firas Al-Karim, Head of Public Donations Section at the Red Crescent Society. The donation forms part of Qatargas’ ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility programme aimed at bolstering the services of local charitable organizations serving the community.

Commenting on this support, Mr. Al-Naimi, Qatargas, said: “We are pleased to lend our assistance to the Qatar Red Crescent in support of these very deserving causes. Qatargas is always at the forefront of supporting such initiatives and has been actively involved in numerous similar initiatives in the past.”

In response, Mr. Abdul Karim, Head of Public Donations Section at the Society, said: “We appreciate the continuing support of Qatargas to our organisation in helping address the issues faced by needy families in our community and also patients in our medical facilities who require special assistance.”
