QNet Supports the Disabled by Sponsoring the 3rd Handicapped Charitable Exhibition, the UAE
QNet was in Dubai last Thursday, 12 May to sponsor the 3rd Handicapped Charitable Exhibition at the Dubai Mall. It was a huge success with a great turnout as hundreds of people came to throng the six booths over its three-day duration, to make purchases in support of the disabled. Not only were purchases made in support of the disabled, but most of the products available for sale were made by them.
Sheikh Joma bin Maktoum Al-Maktoum, a prominent businessman in Dubai officially opened the exhibition which has been organised for the past three years by Dubai Media Incorporated (DMI), the government which runs all the major newspapers and television stations there.
Maryam AlmurMohd bin Huraiz, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Section Head for DMI said, “All proceeds from sales at the exhibition will be donated to the six participating organisations (Rashid Pediatric Therapy Centre, Dubai Club for Special Sports, ShaikaMaithaBint Rashid Maktoum Centre for Special Needs, Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs, Senses, and the Ministry of Social Affairs) that serve the needs of the physically and mentally disabled by training them in such skills as handicraft making, wood carving, pottery and others.”
The General Manager for UAE and Business Development Manager for Middle East & North Africa, Khaled Diab said that QNet’s sponsorship of this exhibition expresses its deep commitment to CSR. “We are carrying out numerous CSR projects around the world through our philanthropic arms, RYTHM Foundation and QNet Pays Forward. By sponsoring this exhibition, we are making a commitment to executing more CSR work in the UAE to thank our loyal customers here for their support over the years,” he said.
A memento was given to Tariq Abdul Hafeedh Al-Yousefi, a QNet sponsor in the United Arab Emirates on behalf of QNet for being the main sponsor at the exhibition.
