Underlining its commitment to raise awareness on various social concerns that affect children and adults, Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) supported the UAE Down Syndrome Charity Golf Day and Auction as Gold Sponsor.
Held at the Dubai Creek & Yacht Club, the event was organized by UAE Down Syndrome Association (UAEDSA), a non-profit organization that empowers people with Down Syndrome in the UAE, by helping them achieve their full potential and maximize their skills, to participate effectively and productively in the society.
Saif Alfalasi, Executive Director of EHSQ & Corporate Affairs, said: “We take concerted initiatives to support disadvantaged youngsters to realize their fullest potential through awareness campaigns and special training programmes. Our support to the charity golf and auction event was aimed at highlighting Down Syndrome in the UAE, and to encourage more people to take up initiatives that will help in empowering people with the condition.”
From supporting disadvantaged families and special needs people to promoting global charity initiatives, ENOC has been at the forefront of several CSR campaigns. Among its various initiatives that make a valuable difference to the society include the annual ENOC Challenge and Masiraty programmes aimed at enhancing the professional and social skills of the participants.
This year, ENOC raised funds for Beit Al Khair Society, The Red Crescent Authority, and Dar Al Ber Society during the Holy Month of Ramadan, while Emirates Gas, as subsidiary of the company joined hands with Dar Al Ber Society to provide 300 disadvantaged families in the UAE with free LPG refill. ENOC has also been a key partner of the ‘Care by Giving’ campaign aimed at increasing awareness about autism and raising funds for the Dubai Autism Centre.
ENOC has set up a dedicated committee to help establish the ENOC Wellness & Social Programme, to promote the health and well-being of employees, and also to strengthen solidarity through community networking in an informal and fun-based environment.
