Vodafone has equipped Al Khor Workers Sports Complex with Wi-Fi to give thousands of labour workers access to the internet for free.

The Complex that is designed and developed by Barwa Real Estate in partnership with the Supreme Committee of Delivery & Legacy and Qatar Foundation, aims to improve the quality of life of more than 150,000 labour workers residing in Al Khor and its neighbouring areas.

“Vodafone globally have long championed the importance of giving internet access to all members of society so we are delighted that thousands of workers will benefit from being included in the digital world and very importantly having a means to stay in touch with their loved ones back home,” said Vodafone Qatar.

“For two years now, Al Khor Workers Sports Complex has played an important role in the life of the labour community in Al Khor giving them a place to gather, play sports and enjoy entertainment from their home country. The inclusion now of free Wi-Fi in the Complex is a further step from both Barwa Real Estate and Vodafone to better this important community’s lifestyle,” said Barwa Real Estate.

Built across 245,000 sqm, the Complex includes cricket grounds, basketball courts and volleyball courts in addition to supermarkets, restaurants, cinemas and other amenities. Vodafone is also the only telecommunications operator serving the community in the Complex with a retail store.
