Qatargas employees have made a financial contribution to the Syria Relief Campaign undertaken by Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah al-Thani Humanitarian Services (Raf).
The objective of the campaign is to deliver emergency humanitarian aid to tens of thousands of Syrian refugees displaced by the ongoing violence in their home country.
Qatargas chief operating officer–administration Ghanim al-Kuwari handed over the cheque for the donation to Raf general manager and Board of Trustees head Ayed al-Qahtani at the Qatargas head office.
Al-Kuwari said: “I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to all the Qatargas employees who have responded very enthusiastically towards this humanitarian cause and contributed generously to support the ongoing campaign by Raf. This clearly demonstrates the high sense of social commitment and concern towards fellow human beings that our people have. We would like to also commend Raf for their initiative and are very pleased to support their efforts in this regard and we hope this will encourage other organisations to do the same.”
Al Qahtani said: “We would like to thank the Qatargas management and employees for supporting Raf in this noble cause. Providing charitable programmes and humanitarian projects to those who are most in need, in an efficient and effective way, is one of the most important objectives of Raf.”
Tens of thousands of Syrians have sought refuge in neighbouring countries as a result of the violence which has been going on for over fifteen months.
Raf’s campaign aims to deliver basic necessities such as food, clothing, medicines and shelter to those affected.
