Dulsco reaffirms commitment to support efforts to provide clean drinking water to underprivileged children

Dulsco HR Solutions, a premier HR Solutions provider and pioneer in manpower outsourcing in the UAE, has displayed its commitment to supporting efforts to provide clean drinking water to underprivileged people around the world through its participation in the recently concluded Water Bucket Walk, a symbolic walkathon in support of children who do not have access to clean drinking water. Dulsco deployed a team of 30 personnel from its manpower services division who provided technical support during the activity, while Dulsco's events equipment rental division provided 75 tables and 150 chairs that were used during the event.


Organised by Dubai Cares and held in conjunction with the Universal Children's Day, the Water Bucket Walk collected an entry fee of AED 30 from each participant, which organisers said will provide one underprivileged child with clean drinking water for one year. Participants of the Water Bucket Walk walked up to three kilometres carrying a bucket, giving them an opportunity to experience a fraction of the difficulties children in developing countries face on a daily basis just to get water.


S Balakumar, Director, HR Solutions said: "Every human being must have the right to access clean water as it is a very basic human need. Unfortunately, there are still millions of children worldwide who have to labour and suffer just to get water that may not even be safe for them. Dulsco intends to contribute to improving the lives of these underprivileged people by supporting initiatives such as the Water Bucket Walk. Being a company that draws its core strength from the commitment of hard-working and highly dedicated people, Dulsco will continue to support civic-oriented efforts that help alleviate human suffering and promote the welfare of less-fortunate individuals around the world."


Studies have shown that children in several developing countries have to walk on average more than six kilometres every day to collect water that is likely unsafe for drinking purposes. Such an ordeal has also been identified as one of the reasons why many of these children are unable to attend school.


Dulsco has been providing primarily human resource and waste management services to the UAE for more than 70 years. Dulsco's manpower solutions offer comprehensive choices for UAE companies, including general, semi-skilled and skilled workers, as well as senior management positions.
