Ooredoo gives Iftar boxes at Katara

The Peninsula

A Group of Ooredoo volunteers surprised families in Katara Cultural Village last night, by distributing Iftar boxes when the Ramadan Cannon was fired.

This initiative is part of the company’s ongoing Hand-In-Hand CSR campaign, and customers can follow Ooredoo’s activities via its Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page using the hashtag #ShareAMoment.

Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi, Director PR and Corporate Communications, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “The firing of the “Midfa al Iftar” (Ramadan Cannon) announces the breaking of the fast, and is a very old tradition in Qatar.

We’re delighted to be able to encourage you all to go along and be part of this daily event, and our volunteers enjoyed sharing a moment with everyone in Katara last night.” 

After hearing the Ramadan cannon, families gathered to break their fast and enjoy the sunset, while children took pictures with Ooredoo team.
