PepsiCo-Jordan - winner of the 2009 and 2010 King Abdullah II Award for Excellence - announced its sponsorship of the Ramadan and Eid Clothing Campaign aimed at supporting orphanages across the Kingdom. The Campaign is held under the patronage of HRH Princess Alia Bint Al-Hussein, and is organized by the Mohammed Al-Masaeed Establishment.
As part of its sponsorship, PepsiCo-Jordan is hosting Iftar events during the holy month and is distributing gifts to orphans. PepsiCo-Jordan’s sponsorship corresponds with its goal of developing the community and cementing its partnership with the public and private sectors. Additionally, HRH Princess Alia Bint Al-Hussein presented PepsiCo-Jordan’s Public Relations Manager, Mohammed Arabiyat, with an award on behalf of the establishment during the main Iftar event, which was held on 17th August, 2011 at Everest Resort, and was attended by 400 children from numerous orphanages in Jordan.
At the end of the Iftar, HRH Princess Alia Bint Al-Hussein handed out gift packs to the children. Similar gifts will be distributed to other children at orphanages over the course of Ramadan.
“We are aware of the importance of forming partnerships between private sector organizations and associations that aim towards developing our local community, thus PepsiCo-Jordan is committed to supporting national initiatives aimed at reinforcing unity amongst Jordanians. We are pleased to participate in this campaign, and we hope to remain at the forefront of companies dedicated to bringing joy into the lives of children”, commented Sufian Al Salman, PepsiCo East Med and Africa HR Director.
