10,000 “Weqaya” Kits to Protect Communities
We recently distributed 10,000 “Weqaya” kits containing personal protective equipment (PPE) to local communities as part of our support for the “UAE Volunteers” initiative to help combat COVID-19.
The PPE includes masks and gloves as well as items such as hand sanitizers and were distributed to the elderly, People of Determination, and individuals across 12 locations, including 8 community development centers in the UAE.
The UAE Volunteers initiative is managed by Emirates Foundation (EF) and is in collaboration with government entities, voluntary groups, and the private sector.
Our support for the initiative has seen over 1,500 of our employees sign up as volunteers and this number is expected to increase. Employees can sign up as volunteers through the website https://volunteers.ae/.
As part of this initiative, we are also hosting a “Virtual Majlis” on our social media channels that is bringing together UAE government leaders and global experts to engage on the key issues facing the world today. In addition, our subsidiary, ADNOC Distribution, is supporting healthcare professionals and all national emergency ambulances refueling at its service stations nationwide.
