As the second leg of the caring initiative kicked off, Nawras Goodwill Journey volunteers travelled to the Omani Women’s Association in Ibra to support local families with donations of household equipment.
Alia Nasser Al Maskari, President of the Omani Women’s Association in Ibra said: “We thank the Nawras volunteers for their initiative in supporting local families. We will make sure those in most need receive the items that best suit their requirements and the donations that can have the greatest positive impact on their daily lives.”
Volunteers then made their way to Al Qabil to install gym equipment to benefit more than 1,000 women in the community as Nawras continues to enrich the daily life of people in Oman. Afterwards, the Nawras Goodwill Journey visited the Omani Women’s Association in Ashkarah to donate refrigerators, air conditioning units, water coolers, washing machines, kitchen equipment and televisions.
Fatma Al-Barawani, a Nawras Goodwill Journey messenger on the trip, said, “The gym equipment will have a huge impact by offering new activities within the local community. The donation of household appliances will help with the services offered to local people and assist with ongoing support programmes.”
The journey continues tomorrow with a visit to the Duqm Special Economic Zone Authority (SEZAD) to discuss community development programmes and distribute household items to people in need, through the Ministry of Social Development.
The second stage of this year’s Nawras Goodwill Journey will continue south to Salalah before returning to Muscat after covering 5,400 kilometres to improve the lives people across the Sultanate during the annual 10-day voyage of generosity and compassion.
