On the first day of the second leg of the 8th Nawras Goodwill Journey of compassion and sharing, Nawras Goodwill volunteers visited the Omani Women’s Association in Quriyat and donated laptops, printers, LCD televisions, DVD players and an iPad 2. Oman’s customer friendly communications provider also helped by presenting gifts of freezers, washing machines, cooking appliances and air conditioning units.
The convoy of volunteers was graciously received by H.E. Sayyid Ahmed bin Hilal Al Busaidi, Wali of Quriyat, who thanked the Nawras team for supporting the local community during the holy month of Ramadan. His Excellency said, “We welcome the Nawras family to Quriyat as they continue to spread the message of giving and love so vividly. The donations to the Omani Women’s Association will be invaluable to the families that visit the association and allow the association to expand its operations to help more people.”
Khalid Al-Zadjali, Events & Protocol Manager at Nawras and Leader of the Nawras Goodwill Journey, said, “There is some fantastic work being done in local communities by the Omani Women’s Association, and we hope that our donations can help to further enrich the lives of the many people in this area. Being part of the Nawras Goodwill Journey is humbling and helps create a sense of perspective; we are all proud to be in a position to offer assistance to those who need it most.” He added, “Supporting the community is not just about donating money or items, but also the kindness and commitment to the cause that we show.”
Spreading smiles and compassion across the country, the annual Goodwill Journey also sponsored the Ramadan cultural activities at Al Arooba Sport Club in Sur. The next stop on the 8th Nawras Goodwill Journey is the Omani Women’s Association in Al Kamil wal Wafi as the caring volunteers head south on the way to their final destination in Salalah.
Every year since 2005, fasting volunteers of the Nawras Goodwill Journey have travelled thousands and thousands of kilometres to visit charitable organisations and non-Government organisations in the Sultanate.
