As part of Qatar’s endeavor to support Lebanon and as an extension of the nation’s ‘Lebanon in Our Hearts’ campaign, Ali Bin Ali Holding launched a multi-level initiative to send necessary aid to help the Lebanese people recover from the tragedy.
The launch came after the deadly explosions that rocked the capital, Beirut, on August 4 that left some 180 people dead, thousands injured and some still missing, in addition to causing massive material damage.
In the wake of the catastrophe, ABA Holding and its employees came together to gather the maximum possible aid to help support the people in Beirut. The Group donated a total of QR225,000, part of which was in the form of an essential goods consignment of 17 tons sent directly to Beirut in partnership with Qatar Airways and part in cash donated to the Lebanese Red Cross, who are working on the ground.
Taking the initiative one step forward, ABA Holding’s Monoprix Qatar joined hands with Qatar Airways and Qatar Charity to create donation boxes for Lebanon from Monoprix. The charitable drive allowed Qatar residents to purchase items at subsidized rates from Monoprix Qatar’s store on Talabat under the section ‘Qatar Airways Box for Lebanon’.
Empathizing with the tragic situation, Vice-Chairman & EVP of ABA Holding Mr. Nabeel Ali Bin Ali said: “Lebanon is facing a humanitarian crisis and it is our duty to extend a helping hand to our brothers in Lebanon. We pray and hope the country is soon able to recover from this tragedy and bounce back on its feet. ABA Holding and its employees have always supported countries in their tough times and we are committed to our vision of service to mankind.
“I am proud of our staff who, like always, supported the Group’s efforts and came forward wholeheartedly and donated for the cause.”
