Vodafone Qatar has named a new batch of seven winners of its World Calling Club competition, which entitles them to QR10,000 each. The winners are Ajanthan Murugananthan (Sri Lanka), Sayed Mohamed and Abdul Tawab Al-Sayed Ahmed Badawi (both Egypt), Ahmad Ali (Syria), Jivan Gurung (Nepal), Amid al- Badawi and Ellie Ziade (both Lebanon). The winners were greeted at Vodafone’s Al Furousiya store by John Tombleson, Vodafone Qatar’s Chief Financial Officer, and Cindy Moussa, head (Consumer Marketing), who were both moved by the winners’ stories. “I feel privileged to be meeting Vodafone’s World Calling Club competition winners and humbled by the knowledge that the money Vodafone has handed over will make a world of difference to theirs and their families’ lives,” said Tombleson. Murugananthan, who works in a bakery, was surprised and filled up with emotions upon hearing the good news and said he would use the money to renovate his house in Sri Lanka. Gurung, a Vodafone customer for five months, who chose to join Vodafone because of the ‘great international calling rates’ said he would send the money back home to Nepal to pay for his children’s education. Ellie Ziade, a chef, who has been living in Qatar for two-and-a-half years, said the money would go towards starting his own business in his home country of Lebanon. Vodafone has given away QR330,000 to 33 winners so far. Vodafone said: “Many more existing and new Vodafone customers who make an international call from now until July end have the chance to win QR10,000 every day. All that the customers need to do is get talking to their family and friends because every minute of every international call automatically puts them in the daily draw to win.” More information on World Calling Club and Vodafone’s international calling rates can be found at
