“7asanat Olympics” reaches out to thousands of people across Qatar
The Youth Company’s yearly Ramadan volunteer initiative “7asanat Olympics” was launched for the 6th consecutive time, supported by GWC Group; reaching out to thousands of people across the Nation.
The initiative’s various activities began on the first day of Ramadan and will conclude on May 31, 2019.
“The main driver for the company’s purpose and passion over the last fifteen years has been and will continue to be our enthusiastic support for the local communities. Now as we witness the sixth year of our commitment to the success of the 7asanat Olympics, we continue our tradition of supporting youth, entrepreneurship, and volunteerism in our CSR efforts, and in pursuit of QNV 2030 Social Development objectives,” stated Mr. Ranjeev Menon, GWC Group CEO.
During the holy month of Ramadan, 70 volunteers engaged in a number of initiatives which included distribution of Iftar boxes at traffic signals during Iftar time, hospital visits for patients who cannot be with their families, and targeted clean-ups of Qatar’s beaches.
The volunteers also visited various community centers as part of their outreach, including the Muaither Residential Compound for the Elderly, Step by Step, Omega Center, and Hope Center for children with special needs. The event also celebrated Garangao on the 14th night of Ramadan.
The 7asanat Olympics is an annual Ramadan event encouraging youth volunteers and helping those fasting in the community as well as the unprivileged. This year’s Olympics is a month-long program which comprises an array of different charitable activities.
It aims to help shape multicultural Qatar by raising awareness on the importance of individual volunteer and collective action to improve the lives of less fortunate ones and show care towards others during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
