Zain do­nates over KD 45,000 to hu­man­i­tar­ian causes

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Zain, the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in Kuwait, an­nounced the do­na­tion of over KD 45,000 on be­half of its cus­tomers for hu­man­i­tar­ian causes. The do­na­tion came as part of its re­cently con­cluded char­i­ta­ble ini­tia­tive it launched dur­ing the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The do­na­tion came in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sheikh Ab­dul­lah Al-Nouri Char­ity As­so­ci­a­tion, and will be uti­lized to build a num­ber of wa­ter wells at dis­tant lo­ca­tions in So­ma­lia and Kyr­gyzs­tan with the aim of pro­vid­ing clean and safe drink­ing wa­ter to un­der­priv­i­leged fam­i­lies.

Zain’s do­na­tion on be­half of its cus­tomers came in line with its Cor­po­rate Sus­tain­abil­ity and So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity strat­egy that seeks to con­trib­ute to hu­man­i­tar­ian causes. Zain prides it­self on its long track of records and con­tri­bu­tions it has put in phil­an­thropic ar­eas. The com­pany strongly be­lieves that such ini­tia­tives help in­fuse a sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity into mem­bers of the so­ci­ety, to help sup­port those who are in need of help.

The do­na­tion came as part of Zain’s re­cently con­cluded ini­tia­tive launched in June, where the com­pany do­nated 500 Fils (half a KD) ev­ery time a cus­tomer paid their bill dur­ing the Holy Month of Ramadan through one of Zain’s elec­tronic chan­nels, in­clud­ing Zain’s web­site, Zain’s smart­phone app, and any of Zain’s Quick­pay ma­chines.

Zain will con­tinue to in­tro­duce ini­tia­tives that re­flect the tra­di­tional hu­man­i­tar­ian val­ues and prin­ci­ples of the Kuwaiti so­ci­ety; aimed at en­rich­ing the art of giv­ing and in­creas­ing bond­ing be­tween in­di­vid­u­als.
