Welcomed by His Excellency Naser Bin Sulaiman Al-Sibani, Deputy Chairman of Public Authority for Radio and TV and greeted by traditional music and community spirit, the 2016 Ooredoo Goodwill Journey concluded its mission of care, compassion, and community support with an exuberant ceremony at Muscat Grand Mall. Since setting out from Salalah at the beginning of the Holy Month, this twelfth Goodwill Journey, with 31 volunteers, covered about five thousand kilometres and traversed all eleven Governorates.

Aiming to empower women and youth across the Sultanate, the dedicated volunteers presented essential equipment, supplies and educational materials to Omani Associations and organisations laying the foundations for a variety of sustainable initiatives and long-term projects. The volunteers distributed gifts in the generous spirit of Ramadan and took part in special ceremonies and festivities.

“An unforgettable and inspiring experience for everyone involved, the Ooredoo Goodwill Journey has once again been a celebration of the generous spirit of Ramadan,” said Amaal Al Lawati, Chief Customer Experience Officerat Ooredoo.

She added: “With a focus on fostering sustainable development and growth for a better tomorrow through the empowerment of women and youth in particular, it has touched the lives and made a valuable contribution to the well-being and future prosperity of thousands of people in communities across Oman. We will keep a watchful eye on the projects we have initiated and supported, and look forward to seeing their progress in the months and years to come.”

Ooredoo’s Chief Customer Experience Officer went on to thank all people who supported the Goodwill Journey with warm messages of encouragement and cheers as it made its way across the Sultanate. She emphasised that every contribution had been put to work and every gift had been passed on. She offered her own thanks, and those of the whole Ooredoo family, to the selfless and steadfast volunteers who gave up their time and worked with enormous dedication and enthusiasm to make this 2016 Ooredoo Goodwill Journey a resounding and memorable success.
