KUWAIT: Oore­doo, the fastest net­work in Kuwait in 2016, par­tic­i­pated in the Open Health Day or­ga­nized by the Ministry of Health’s Pub­lic Re­la­tions De­part­ment last week. The marathon, which took place along the Ara­bian Gulf Road, wit­nessed the at­ten­dance of more than 1500 stu­dents from dif­fer­ent schools from across Kuwait, in co­or­di­na­tion with the Ministry of Ed­u­ca­tion and other gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties.

Oore­doo Kuwait stated that par­tic­i­pat­ing in such an event is in tan­dem with the com­pany’s deep-rooted be­lief and com­mit­ment to its core val­ues of car­ing, con­nect­ing and chal­leng­ing. The com­pany also lauded the joint ef­forts and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween en­ti­ties from both pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor to make this event a suc­cess. Supporting this ini­tia­tive is also re­flec­tive of Oore­doo’s com­mit­ment to the UN Global Goals en­dorsed by Oore­doo, which in­clude good health and well-be­ing.

Oore­doo fur­ther­more con­tin­ues to ex­ert ef­forts to sup­port gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties in rais­ing aware­ness about a va­ri­ety of health is­sues and ways to adopt a health­ier life­style. This comes in align­ment with Oore­doo’s com­mit­ment to the Global Goals project of the United Na­tions, which was adopted by Oore­doo in 2015, and fo­cuses on health and well-be­ing as one of its main points.

Aside from the marathon, the event in­cluded a num­ber of com­pe­ti­tions and games for par­tic­i­pants of all ages, in ad­di­tion to health ex­hibits held and or­ga­nized by dif­fer­ent pri­vate clin­ics and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies. Med­i­cal staff were avail­able to con­duct tests for all at­ten­dees to mea­sure their blood sugar, pres­sure, choles­terol, body mass in­dex, and to pro­vide var­i­ous med­i­cal con­sul­ta­tions. Oore­doo Kuwait is com­mit­ted to supporting dif­fer­ent seg­ments of so­ci­ety through its spon­sor­ships around the year.
