Oore­doo gives aid to Aleppo at Souq Murouj

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Oore­doo, the fastest net­work in Kuwait in 2016, held a num­ber of hu­man­i­tar­ian ini­tia­tives at Souq Murouj on Fri­day aimed to help the dis­placed peo­ple of Aleppo. The ini­tia­tives, or­ga­nized in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety and Ab­dul­lah AlNouri Char­ity Or­ga­ni­za­tion, in­cluded a do­na­tion box for win­ter clothes and blan­kets, in ad­di­tion to the “Tree of Life” ini­tia­tive, where vis­i­tors can tie a mes­sage with a rib­bon to the branches of a tree, and Oore­doo do­nates KD 1 for each mes­sage to the co­op­er­at­ing char­ity or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Com­ment­ing on these ini­tia­tives, Oore­doo’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Se­nior Di­rec­tor Mi­j­bil Alay­oub said: “Our strat­egy in Oore­doo is based on deep-rooted val­ues of caring and con­nect­ing. We are al­ways for­tu­nate to be work­ing with es­teemed or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the Kuwait Red Cres­cent So­ci­ety and Ab­dul­lah Al-Nouri Or­ga­ni­za­tion, both of whom have wel­comed the op­por­tu­nity of col­lab­o­ra­tion and joined hands with us promptly. We pray for the safety and well­be­ing of our broth­ers and sis­ters af­fected by the cri­sis in Aleppo.”

The Murouj Souq in­cludes lo­cal farm pro­duce, ar­ti­sanal food prod­ucts and crafts, with a ‘street food’ sec­tion aimed at high­light­ing the culi­nary di­ver­sity of Kuwait’s lo­cal food com­mu­nity. The mar­ket also of­fers a sec­tion ded­i­cated for chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties. It will be held on week­ends, once a month un­til March 2017.

In a state­ment about this par­tic­i­pa­tion, Oore­doo Kuwait stressed its com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­nesses and en­trepreneurs, es­pe­cially through this en­gag­ing project. This spon­sor­ship comes in tan­dem with the com­pany’s so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity strat­egy, which in turn is based on the core val­ues of Oore­doo, of caring, con­nect­ing and chal­leng­ing. Oore­doo is a strate­gic part­ner of this event. Up­dates about the mar­ket can be found on Murouj’s of­fi­cial Instagram ac­count @murou­jkw as well as our Instagram ac­count @Oore­dooKuwait
