An enthusiastic supporter of community events, Ooredoo was proud to sponsor this year’s Al Sharqiya Challenge, an inspiring and exciting two-day 80 kilometre trek across the majestic dunes of the Sharqiya Sands. A test of endurance and driving skill, and above all an event filled with good teamworking and lots of fun, the Challenge attracted a record number of entrants this year. Amongst them were dozens of Ooredoo family members, keen to push themselves to the limit in the thrilling desert adventure.

Congratulating all the participants as well as the organisers, Kumail Al Moosawi, Chief People and Corporate Affairs Officer, said: “With ‘challenging’ as one of Ooredoo’s core values, it has been a real pleasure to partner with the Al Sharqiya Challenge 2017. And like the Al Sharqiya Challenge we are built on commitment, communication, innovation, friendship and a strong team spirit; qualities we live by and which underpin all our successes and achievements.”

Ooredoo supports a variety of community events and activities throughout the year, including Muscat and Salalah Tourism Festivals. It also partners with organisations such as Paris-Saint German Football Club to introduce Oman’s youth to both the joys of sport and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, helping them develop important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and problem solving.
