As part of its corporate social responsibility strategy, the Dead Sea Development Company (DSDC) partnered with the Development Zones Commission (DZC) to deliver charity packages in Sweimeh and its surrounding areas.

This initiative comes to reaffirm the company's commitment to its local community, particularly during the Holy Month of Ramadan, which is a time for charity and goodwill. A total of 1,000 packages containing various staple foods have been delivered to underprivileged families in Sweimeh, Rama, Al Rawdah and Al Jawfah. The delivery mechanism was based on a list of beneficiaries submitted by the National Aid Fund and in collaboration with the Sweimeh County and Management of the Shunah Development.

Taha Zboun, the CEO of DSDC, said: "This humanitarian effort comes as part of an integrated CSR strategy placed by DSDC, with the objective of bettering the quality of life at Sweimeh on several scales, including health and education. The men and women of the area are crucial elements of its workforce and their welfare and development is part of the company's overall objectives."

DZC's Chief Commissioner Bilal Bashir said that the commission spares no effort in developing the communities surrounding the Kingdom's development zones by improving their standards of living through sustainable development programs.

"This initiative stems from our awareness of the importance role played by the local communities in the development process," said Bashir. "The launch of the development zones in itself aims to achieve social equality by disseminating their profits and securing development links by battling poverty and unemployment, in addition to creating a lucrative investment environment that will strengthen the communities in these zones."

The Dead Sea Development Company (DSDC) was established as a special purpose vehicle to serve as the master developer of the Dead Sea Development Zone (DSDZ). The company services investors by providing lucrative investment opportunities in the DSDZ utilizing various private-public partnerships. The establishment of the DSDC is designed to set the stage for the engagement of private sector partners to participate in the zone's development under commercial terms and conditions.
