IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON
The Youth Company launched 7asanat Olympics this Ramadan, bringing together youth between the ages of 14 and 20 to encourage them to participate in the spirit of the season and pay back the community through charity drives and volunteer work.
Hospital visits, breaking fast with the elderly, charity drives and Iftar distributions were some of the activities planned over the course of the Holy Month that involved 120 young volunteers and over 500 volunteer hours. The Youth Company partnered with over 14 government organisations, charities, and corporate houses to organise the events. The team distributed iftar boxes at popular intersections or roundabouts during iftar time to help reduce the number of accidents at this time and also celebrated Garangou with the young patients at the pediatric ward of Hamad Medical Corporation as well as helped organise Garangou events at Al Riwaq and Katara. The volunteers also collected spare clothing for charity from various compounds in partnership with Sheikh Eid Charity Association.
