In line with the solidarity of the Holy Month of Ramadan, Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has launched a series of philanthropic, cultural, and spiritual campaigns, aligned with the company’s CSR initiatives.
Reiterating its commitment to reciprocate to the community, ENOC has joined hands with Beit Al Khair Society, The Red Crescent Authority (RCA), and Dar Al Ber Society, to contribute to less fortunate families through a charity collection drive. During the Holy Month of Ramadan, all three organisations will place donation boxes across ENOC and EPPCO service stations in Dubai encouraging members of the community to donate in the spirit of generosity.
Khalid Hadi, Director of Brand and Corporate Communications of ENOC said: “The Holy Month of Ramadan denotes a time of reflection. Basking on the values of kindness and gratitude, humility, and spirituality, ENOC is stressing the importance of members of the community helping people in need. Celebrating the marvel of Ramadan, we encourage people across the UAE to assist those less fortunate than us.”
In 2002 ENOC/EPPCO was the first fuel retailer to introduce provide dates and water at service stations in the UAE, during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Since then the initiative is carried out annually reaching thousands of motorists daily. Held in collaboration with Alokozay, this year 79 ENOC/EPPCO service stations in Dubai will be distributing over 100,000 boxes containing dates, water, and prayer beads during Iftar.
ENOC is also organising a number of cultural and spiritual lectures during the Holy Month of Ramadan to educate employees in the group. The lectures are aimed at enhancing awareness on the Holy Month, as well as its customs and practices.
Key Islamic speakers from Dubai Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities, Government of Dubai, will lead the lectures in Arabic and English, bridging cultures amongst the diverse community within the group.
ENOC also launched a workplace initiative to promote healthy guidelines for fasting, which have been shared with employees across the world.
Another initiative launched by EMGAS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ENOC, in association with the Beit Al Khair Society, provides free LPG refills to 300 underprivileged families in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, during the Holy Month.
Ramadan initiatives are part of series of community campaigns supported by ENOC, aimed at reaching out to and giving back to the society – across social, environmental and economical sectors. All companies within the ENOC group are committed to upholding the highest standards of CSR while conducting business
