25 May 2019

Baladna Food Industries, in collaboration with Qatar Charity (QC), is distributing 10,000 liters of long-life milk (UHT) among workers in Al Thakira and Al Khor Ramadan tents.

The milk will also be distributed to families in need, Baladna has said in a statement. The collaboration is part of the ‘Qatari products supporting charity’ campaign.

“We take pride in our collaboration with QC. The work they have done over the years has been extraordinary and has helped millions of people. The essence of Ramadan lies in giving back to the community and we believe in continuing our commitment to Qatar and its people. The workers are an integral part of Qatar’s future and need to be supported by all entities. Baladna will continue to support the local communities in every way possible way, as having a comprehensive corporate social responsibility is part of our core values”, said Saba Al Fadala, Baladna’s Public Relations and Communication Director.

Ali Al Ghareeb, Director of the Local Development Department at Qatar Charity, said, “At QC we value Baladna Food Industries’ initiative. Their contribution supports blue-collared workers and low-income families during the Holy month of Ramadan, in tents located in Al Khor and Al Thakira. This is part of their corporate social responsibility and support initiatives for charitable causes. QC is open to contribution from both governmental and private entities, to improve services provided to the local communities in various sectors”.

Baladna has been an active contributor to the Qatari economy over the past few years.

As a result of the blockade, Baladna accelerated the diversification of products to help enhance its role in meeting the country’s self-sufficiency goals.

It is worth mentioning that QC set up 45 tents across Qatar during Ramadan 2019, benefiting 350,000 blue-collared workers.

Iftar meals were handed out in cars to laborers in industrial areas and homesteads benefiting 39,000 workers. Additionally, charity food packages were also handed out to 10,000 low-income families. Overall, 3.4 million people from 30 different countries benefited from Qatar Charity’s initiatives this year.
