Education Above All (EAA) Foundation, through its programme Reach Out To Asia (ROTA), announced its Ramadan 2017 Project, an annual event for volunteers, supporters and community beneficiaries in Qatar that brings together like-minded individuals to serve the community and make a positive difference in the lives of people in need.

Bringing together around 200 local volunteers, the ROTA Ramadan 2017 Project features a series of activities that aim to contribute to different communities in Qatar, and connect volunteers with the true spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan. To effectively deliver the campaign, ROTA is collaborating with a number of local partners, including Hamad Medical Corporation and the Gulf Contracting Company.

This year, volunteers will share Iftar with residents of Ehsan – the Center for Elderly Care and Empowerment, and Rumailah Hospital’s Residential Care Community. ROTA will also coordinate Iftars where volunteers will interact and engage with labourers in Doha, Al Shamal and Al Khor.

Volunteers will also visit various Hamad Hospital facilities – such as the Fahad Bin Jassim Dialysis Centre and the Inaya Elderly and Special Needs Centre to interact with patients and share smiles and joy as well as small gestures of Ramadan goodwill. In addition, ROTA Volunteers will celebrate Garangaou with the Children’s Rehabilitation Centre, at Hamad Medical City where children will enjoy traditional party games, face painting, arts and crafts and receive small gifts.

To kick off the Ramadan 2017 Project, ROTA recently hosted a Volunteer Recruitment Event at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University Student Centre in Education City where volunteers learned all about the project activities.
