Mobilk - Enriching the digital lives of the community, Ooredoo has inaugurated two ‘Digital Entertainment Rooms’ for the Paediatric Cancer and Paediatric Surgery wards at the Royal Hospital in Muscat. Designed and implemented by Ooredoo volunteers, the rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art video games, TV screens and tablets for the children to enjoy. An opening ceremony was attended by Dr. Qasim Al Salmi, Director General of Royal Hospital, as well as delegates from Ooredoo, who also handed out gifts to the young patients. The set-up is one of the latest initiatives in the Ooredoo Goodwill CSR programme.
Feras bin Abdullah Al Shaikh, Consumer Director at Ooredoo, said, “At Ooredoo we consider ourselves an integral member of society, and that’s why we make it our mission to help the community where we can, and this is something that is passionately fulfilled by all members of the Ooredoo family. Being in hospital is a tough experience, especially for children, so the idea behind the Entertainment Rooms was to provide them a little bit of a break, a place to relax and take their minds off of being in hospital.”
Ooredoo’s passion for community initiatives also earned the company the highly-regarded Sultan Qaboos Award for Voluntary Work, noting its efforts on the Goodwill Journey, which recently turned 15. Carrying out a wide range of initiatives including partnerships with various charities, providing basic educational materials, supporting communities affected by the natural disasters, youth development, training and employment, environmental initiatives, and supporting SME’s and entrepreneurs, Ooredoo works alongside voluntary organisations, the government, and non-government organisations (NGOs), making good on its promise to make people’s lives better.
