Emirates General Petroleum Corporation 'Emarat" recently launched a charity campaign that aims to collect old clothes in 16 service stations in Dubai. Special containers are designated for this purpose. The used clothes will be then distributed to the poor and needy around the world in cooperation with an international charity establishment.

Mr. Hussain Kazim, Manager Corporate Communications at Emarat, said that the Corporation endeavors to help the needy and poor everywhere and to support them in any way it can, especially in the areas where poverty prevails. As such, Emarat is very proud to launch this noble and humane initiative that can be a helping hand to that in need.

Mr. Kazim also said that the initiative was met with a lot of encouragement as was evident in the large numbers of contributions made. People have deposited all the clothes that they don't need in the special containers located at the service stations.

He further added that more contributions are expected as the awareness of such campaigns is being raised, especially that such initiatives help people dispose of the clothes that they do not need and allow them to participate at the same time in a humane and noble cause, in addition to the protection of the environment.

Mr. Kazim pointed out that the service stations hosting these containers are (Bin Hendi, Al Wasl, Al Ameen, Umm Suqeim, Al Shurooq, Al Hassa, Jebel Ali, Nad Al Hamar, Al Adhed, Beach, Chicago Beach, Al Ittihad, Al Safa, Al Madares, Al Bustan and Rajhan.)
