An Indian businessman in Muscat has handed over clothes and shoes worth RO8,000 to a charity to be given to deserving Omani families.
Najeeb Abdul Rehiman, 50, said the donation is a gesture of love and appreciation for the country where he has been doing business for the last three decades.
“I chose the occasion of the National Day to show my honour and respect to the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos and His Majesty Sultan Haitham, and my love to the people of Oman,” he said.
Rehiman runs sports shops in OC Centre, Ruwi, and Seeb.
Speaking about the donation, Rehiman said, “In the last 30 years, Oman has provided me more than enough. I have received many incredible things from the country. It has provided me livelihood and happiness, and this donation is my way of showing my gratitude to the people of Oman for making me who I am today.”
The goods, mostly sports items like shoes, jackets and jerseys, will be distributed among needy people across the sultanate.
According to Rehiman, this is the second year he has made such a donation. Last year, he donated goods worth RO10,000.
