The platform is a testament to their unwavering vision of giving back to the community and fostering a positive impact on society. Through Rahlatuna, the innovative brand strives to engage the community in a meaningful and constructive way, as evidenced by its long history of supporting education, notable charitable causes, championing athletes, fostering artists, cleaning beaches, and donating books.
Education is a key focus of McDonald’s Qatar’s CSR programme. Hence, the innovative brand will continue supporting EAA by enabling customers to make a donation from any of the 71 restaurants strategically located around Qatar at various touch points.
If anyone wants to be part of the fund-raising campaign, crew members will continue to ask customers if they would like to add QAR1 to their total bill.
