Ooredoo has today received an award of appreciation from Best Buddies Qatar for its ongoing support for the initiative.

The award was presented to Ooredoo’s Director of PR and Corporate Communications, Manar Khalifa al-Muraikhi, by Mr. Mohammed Abdulrahman Al-Sayed, Best Buddies Qatar Manager of Rehabilitation and Integration Department, at Ooredoo’s HQ1.

Ooredoo had signed a three-year agreement earlier this year to provide financial support to the organisation, as well as support through a host of its state-of-the-art services, including developing an app for Best Buddies Qatar.

Speaking about the award, Manar Khalifa al-Muraikhi, Ooredoo Director of PR and Corporate Communications, said: “Supporting the Best Buddies initiative is something that I am extremely proud of, as we are helping an amazing organisation offer lifelines to people in need. I am truly humbled to receive this award on behalf of Ooredoo and look forward to seeing the great success Ooredoo and Best Buddies will achieve for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Qatar.”

Established in 2008 as a special project of HH Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser and under umbrella of Qatar Foundation for Social Work, Best Buddies Qatar is a governmental non-profitable organisation, which aims to enhance life of people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities through social integration and one-to-one long lasting meaningful friendships.

In addition to partnering with Best Buddies Qatar, Ooredoo has undertaken several other CSR-based initiatives across Qatar, including building and operating the Fahad Bin Jassim Kidney Centre, which supports kidney patients in Qatar, and the new Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre.
