Doha, Qatar

As part of its corporate social responsibility, Ooredoo launched a new campaign for the Holy Month of Ramadan that will see more than 200 customers win a trip to Mecca to perform Umrah.

The event was held at Ooredoo’s Auditorium in the company’s West Bay headquarters, with Deputy Group CEO and CEO of Ooredoo Qatar, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani along with senior representatives of Ooredoo and high-profile Qatari influencers – Khalid Jassim, Hamad Al Jameela, Abdulla Al Ghafri, Khalifa Al Haroon, Ameena Mousa, Qatnology and Qatar Living – in attendance.

Customers who wish to be part of this new campaign must follow one or all of the influencers involved in it on to enter the raffle draw for a chance to win a trip to Mecca to perform Umrah, with winners being announced on each influencer’s social media page four days after the launch. Instructions on how to enter will be posted on their social media accounts.

Sabah Rabiah Al-Kuwari – Director PR at Ooredoo – said: “The Holy Month of Ramadan is about introspection and prayer, but also about sharing and giving back. We are very happy to be able to assist a number of our customers to practice their religious rituals at this time of the year, as our way of thanking them for their loyalty and in line with our social responsibility and our commitment to supporting Qatar’s diverse communities.”

Al-Kuwari also indicated that the campaign to use social media platforms without deducting the data balance for Shahry and Qatarna customers will continue until the first week of Ramadan to allow them to communicate and offer congratulations on the occasion of the holy month.

Media figure and influencer Khalid Jassim gave a word, thanking Ooredoo for the generous initiative, stressing the importance of this campaign in giving the opportunity to perform Umrah for those who wish to do so during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Poet and influencer Hamad Al Jameela said: “I am very thankful to Ooredoo for inviting me to be part of this amazing Ramadan Campaign. This shows how much our leading telecoms company values its customers and is keen on rewarding them for their loyalty.”

Influencer Abdulla Al Ghafri said: “This is a very special initiative and campaign during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Thank you to the Ooredoo management for their continuing efforts to strengthen their relationship with customers and enhance their experience with the company.”

During the press conference, Ooredoo also announced the renaming of its auditorium as the Waleed Al-Sayed Auditorium, in honour of the late former Deputy Group CEO and CEO of Ooredoo Qatar. This commemorates his long years of service to the company and great achievements there.

This comes as part of the #BlessedMoments campaign that Ooredoo is launching during the holy month of Ramadan.
