Oman­tel ini­tia­tive brings cheer to chil­dren at The Royal Hos­pi­tal

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Af­ter the huge suc­cess of last year’s edi­tion, Oman­tel, the pre­mier provider of in­te­grated telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vices in the sul­tanate, has once again man­aged to put a smile on the faces of chil­dren through ‘Colour Their World’ ini­tia­tive which aimed at en­gag­ing with young chil­dren in The Royal Hos­pi­tal.

With the par­tic­i­pa­tion of a group of Omani artists su­per­vised by Yousif al Nahwi, the hu­man­i­tar­ian ini­tia­tive from Oman­tel re­in­forces its core val­ues and cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Oman­tel’s ‘Colour Their World’ ini­tia­tive gave vol­un­teers an op­por­tu­nity to take part in paint­ing the walls of the Pae­di­atric Clinic at The Royal Hos­pi­tal and there­fore bring a smile to the faces of the young chil­dren be­ing treated in the hos­pi­tal.

Laila al Wa­haibi, man­ager, Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity, Oman­tel said, “We are pleased to spread cheer among chil­dren in hos­pi­tals. Tra­di­tion­ally, hos­pi­tals are per­ceived to be se­ri­ous places, so we thought we would en­liven the sur­round­ings of pa- tients in the chil­dren’s ward with a bit of colour.

“This is also part of our strat­egy to in­still the spirit of giv­ing among our em­ploy­ees, where they par­tic­i­pated by do­nat­ing gifts that were dis­trib­uted to the chil­dren. Oman­tel is ded­i­cated to giv­ing back to so­ci­ety through on­go­ing com­mu­nity out­reach pro­grammes.”

Oman­tel’s so­cial in­vest­ments are fo­cused on high-im­pact ar­eas such as dig­i­tal in­clu­sion, en­vi­ron­ment, youth em­pow­er­ment, tal­ent de­vel­op­ment and en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneur­ship. The com­pany be­lieves that these key ar­eas will be in­stru­men­tal in the sul­tanate re­al­is­ing its longterm am­bi­tions.

The com­pany also lever­ages its cor­po­rate re­sources and ex­per­tise to pro­vide pro­grammes that sup­port the youth, thereby ac­cel­er­at­ing their per­sonal and pro­fes­sional skills and pre­par­ing them to take up chal­leng­ing ca­reers in the fu­ture. Its CSR pro­grammes recog­nise the un­der­ly­ing so­cio-eco­nomic is­sues in the sul­tanate and their im­pact across in­dus­try ver­ti­cals.
