The Environment Society of Oman (ESO) is inviting the public to join its very first virtual fundraiser.
Hosted by H H Sayyida Tania al Said, President of ESO, and special guest, Omani football legend, Ali al Habsi, the fundraiser is set to take place on August 24.
To be held in partnership with Oman Arab Bank, the event will see participants enjoy a fun line-up of online events including a raffle, silent auction, videos of ESO’s past and ongoing work, and performances from local musicians. ‘Most importantly, it’s a chance to contribute to a cause dedicated to environmental conservation. Tickets are available online from August 10,’ stated ESO.
As the country’s only non-profit organisation dedicated to the environment, ESO has spent the last 16 years working to protect Oman’s environment through education, awareness and conservation. ‘The current health pandemic is serving as a stark reminder of how intricately connected environmental health is with human health, and how important it is for efforts like theirs to continue. The economic impact of this pandemic, however, means that ESO has experienced a significant drop in funding. There has never been a more important time to support ESO,’ it added.
