Oore­doo part­ners with ‘Re­food’ vol­un­teer ini­tia­tive

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Oore­doo, Kuwait’s fastest network in 2016, has re­cently part­nered with ‘Re­food,’ a youth ini­tia­tive that fo­cuses on de­liv­er­ing food for peo­ple in need in­side Kuwait. Sup­port­ing this ini­tia­tive comes in tan­dem with the com­pany’s strat­egy based on caring, con­nect­ing and chal­leng­ing, which places great em­pha­sis on sup­port­ing youth vol­un­teer ini­tia­tives.

Oore­doo stated that this co­op­er­a­tion aims to raise aware­ness of com­pa­nies in­side Kuwait on the im­por­tance of tak­ing a proac­tive role in so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. ‘Re­food’ is a youth vol­un­teer char­ity ini­tia­tive that aims to put all food that typ­i­cally goes to waste to good use by col­lect­ing food items that are about to ex­pire and do­nat­ing them to fam­i­lies and peo­ple in need in­side Kuwait on a weekly ba­sis.

Oore­doo has re­cently par­tic­i­pated in sev­eral ma­jor events na­tion­wide that are fo­cused on youth and vol­un­teerism. It has part­nered with a num­ber of es­teemed en­ti­ties, such as the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs, the Arab Me­dia Fo­rum, Spread the Pas­sion, among other or­ga­ni­za­tions that fo­cused on youth ef­forts.

Oore­doo is also the proud founder of a vol­un­teer pro­gram en­ter­ing its third year, which at­tracted hun­dreds of vol­un­teers from across Kuwait. The pro­gram aims to give the vol­un­teers cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in vol­un­teerism, cov­er­ing all the nec­es­sary skills, in co­op­er­a­tion with fa­mous char­ac­ters lo­cally and re­gion­ally. Vol­un­teers were tasked with dis­tribut­ing meals in Oore­doo’s Ra­madan if­tar tent through­out the holy month of Ra­madan over the past two years, lo­cated across the street from Oore­doo’s head of­fice in Kuwait City.
