Reach Out to Asia (Rota), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, recently held an Iftar for construction workers living in the Al Shamal Municipality.
The event was sponsored by Occidental Petroleum Corporation (Oxy) and hosted by Rota volunteers.
Mohammed al-Saleh, director of National Programmes at Rota, said: “Ramadan presents a great opportunity for Rota to further our year-round community outreach initiatives. The Ramadan 2016 Project also gives Rota volunteers the chance to interact with communities across Qatar, and we hope this will build a platform for increased interaction between cultures.
“This is a small token of our appreciation for construction workers, and we are grateful to the volunteers for their efforts towards Rota’s Ramadan 2016 Project.”
“I am honoured to be a part of this Ramadan initiative. These men work really hard throughout the year and Ramadan can be a tough time for them, especially being so far away from their families. It’s important for us to show our gratitude towards them and give them a sense of belonging in the community,” said Yasser Khan, a Rota volunteer.
“Each year we look forward to meeting the Rota volunteers and the chance to enjoy and share an Iftar with our colleagues. We are grateful to Rota for their consideration of the wider community,” said a construction worker living in Al Shamal Municipality.
