The Ministry of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources (MRMWR) signed an agreement with Oman LNG company on Tuesday to supply and install outdoor equipment for disabled children in 19 public parks across the sultanate.
Attesting its role in spearheading Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, Oman LNG Development Foundation signed the agreement with the ministry. The nation-wide initiative builds on earlier success where Oman LNG Development Foundation has funded similar projects at Sahwa Park and in Sur.
The agreement was signed by HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Mohammed al Shehhi, Minister of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources and Dr Amor bin Nasser al Matani, CEO of Oman LNG Development Foundation.
Commenting on the signing, Dr Matani said, “The accords inked today are in line with the company’s robust efforts to promote and upgrade social welfare programmes for different segments of society. This, in turn, encourages the building of a strong and vibrant society that values and cares for its people.”
The project comes to address the need and ease challenges and difficulties while providing a safe environment for children with disabilities. Such recreational projects also promote a healthy lifestyle in a safe environment for the community, a press release stated.
The foundation has funded various critical equipment for RO2mn, targeting persons with disability over the years, with the aim to continue building partnerships with different government entities for the benefit of the society.
Oman LNG has received many awards in recognition for its contribution to Oman’s progress, the most recent being the prestigious ‘His Majesty the Sultan Award for Best Company in Voluntary Work 2017’, the highest achievement for corporate social responsibility attainable in Oman.
