Eshraqa sup­ports 15th Izki Mass Wed­ding event

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Eshraqa, the Khimji Ram­das so­cial devel­op­ment arm, sup­ported the Izki Mass Wed­ding cer­e­mony as part of its key so­cial devel­op­ment ini­tia­tive, that forms one of its three found­ing pil­lars of Com­mu­nity Well­be­ing, Ed­u­ca­tion and Health. The event was held in Izki un­der the pa­tron­age of H H Sayyid Mar­wan bin Turki al Said.

Com­ment­ing on the event, Nailesh Khimji, direc­tor, Khimji Ram­das, said, “We are de­voted to build­ing stronger and more re­silient so­ci­eties through a wide net­work of com­mu­nity build­ing ini­tia­tives. Our sup­port of events such as the Izki Mass Wed­ding cer­e­mony forms a fun­da­men­tal as­pect of Eshraqa’s so­cial out­reach pro­grammes that seek to im­prove and en­rich peo­ple’s lives. We feel hon­oured to be part of such a mo­men­tous event and mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion.”

Eshraqa has been sup­port­ing the mass wed­ding cer­e­mony at Izki for the last five years, en­sur­ing that cou­ples with mea­gre fi­nan­cial means have a mem­o­rable day. This year again, the com­pany of­fered gen­er­ous sup­port as the di­a­mond spon­sor for the event, fa­cil­i­tat­ing the nup­tials of 47 cou­ples.

Thank­ing Eshraqa for its long­stand­ing sup­port, Mo­hammed bin Ali bin Mo­hammed al Ryami, Izki Mass Wed­ding gen­eral su­per­vi­sor, said, “We thank Eshraqa for their con­tin­ued sup­port in help­ing our goals to give Oman’s youth a good foun­da­tion for mar­riage. Through their gen­er­ous sup­port, we have been able to suc­cess­fully set up a sys­tem for the youth to get a fresh start at the out­set of their mar­riage.”

The Izki mass wed­ding event is an on­go­ing so­cial in­ter-de­pen­dence ini­tia­tive that started in 2003 with the sup­port of a huge num­ber of or­gan­i­sa­tions from both pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors as well as so­cial en­ti­ties and sports teams in the wi­layat. These in­sti­tu­tions share the same goal: To fa­cil­i­tate the lives of the youth and help them set­tle well in their re­spec­tive mar­riages with­out any has­sles; the groom only par­tic­i­pates with a sym­bolic amount, and the rest of the ex­penses are borne by vol­un­teer­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Eshraqa.

Part of the fes­tiv­i­ties for the last week’s mass wed­ding event in­cluded lucky draws that en­ti­tled cou­ples to win leisure trips to Malaysia.
