Ooredoo and the Eid Bin Mohammad Al Thani Charitable Association (Eid Charity) have today announced a partnership to enable donations to the charity soon via Ooredoo’s nationwide Self Service Machine (SSM) network.

The agreement, which was signed by Ooredoo’s Chief Sales and Services Officer, Mr Ahmad Abdulaziz Al Neama, and Eid Charity's Executive Manager of Resources Development & Media, Mr. Nawaf Bin Abdullah Al Hammadi, at a signing ceremony in Ooredoo’s HQ1, outlined the organisations partnership to allow Ooredoo SSM users to donate in a smart and effective manner.

With over 200 Self Service Machines spread across the country, donations to Eid Charity will soon be easily be made by cash or credit/debit card 24/7.

Donations will be made towards a host of initiatives supporting human relief, medical projects, Holy Quran services, development projects, water well drilling, orphan sponsorship and more.

Mr Neama said: “Ooredoo users have been able to donate to charities via our Self Service Machines in the past but only during special times such as Eid or Ramadan. With this new partnership everyone in Qatar will be able to give to a host of worthy causes whenever they want. Ooredoo has a long history of supporting and working with the Eid Charity and we’re proud to now be able to facilitate such a vital way for Qatar’s people to help.”

Mr. Nawaf Al Hammadi said “Allowing people to donate in the most simplest ways is a main goal for us, and the Self Service Machines makes donation easier than ever before and can be made whilst topping-up your phone, or simply passing a machine. With several of our causes in need of funds and attention, we are delighted to be associated with Ooredoo and aim to bring about a positive social change in Qatar, for Qatar’s people.”

This is the latest in a series of significant upgrades on Ooredoo’s network of SSM’s as the company continue to offer more options for customers to keep up-to-date with their daily services.

Eid Charity was established in 1995 in Doha, Qatar and since its launch has provided a wide range of services to people in need including food collection and distribution to the poor, and supporting drug awareness and rehabilitation programmes in the country and elsewhere in the Middle East. Eid Charity has also supported relief efforts in many places such as Syria which received over $70 million (USD) of humanitarian aid since the beginning of the crisis.

In addition to donating via the Ooredoo Self-Service machines customers can also pay Ooredoo Shahry and Kahramaa bills, top-up Hala accounts, purchase vouchers for an incredible range of shopping and dining experiences for popular brands in Qatar.
