QNET, a global e-commerce business, in line with its tradition and commitment to helping society, shared love, compassion and kindness by making donations and bringing joy to many less-privileged communities across Africa. In an exercise that was replicated across all the countries it has a presence in, in Africa, QNET along with its independent representatives, agents and staff brought joy, hope and smiles to many faces in the holy month of Ramadan.
This year in Kenya, QNET donated foodstuff including rice, beans, maize floor, cooking oil, soft drinks and water worth over USD 4,500 to Tree House Children’s Home in Ruaraka, Nairobi.
QNET which is driven by the philosophy of RYTHM – ‘Raise Yourself to Help Mankind’ organizes this annual campaign to help enhance the lives of many less fortunate families and children, by providing them with necessities such as food, drinks and financial assistance for educational and humanitarian purposes.
In Senegal, Cameroon, Tanzania, Kenya, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Guinea, Ivory Coast and Ghana, QNET donated bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, assorted drinks, toiletries and money to orphanages, Muslim communities, educational charities and the charity offices of Chief Imams.
Biram Fall, QNET’s Regional General Manager for sub-Saharan Africa, when commenting on the QNET Ramadan CSR this year, said:
“QNET has been consistent over the years. The Ramadan charity campaign is one of the ways we reach out to society to help people. As we make progress in our business, we believe in spreading the joy and fulfilment that come with it. It is indeed a very meaningful, heart-warming and fulfilling initiative for QNET. It empowers people, demonstrates love to communities and is also inspiring for our staff and our Independent Representatives, as they become personally involved in enriching the lives of others. Our business objective is all about creating opportunities for people, making lives better and empowering people to help them live an absolute life. We call that Absolute living.”
Receiving the donation from QNET administrator of Tree House Children’s Home Nicholas Omondi, said the donation will go a far way in providing needed food and other requirements for the 56 children residents at the centre.
“We thank QNET for this generous donation and call on other companies to emulate this gesture in line with the spirit of charity and empowerment. The donation will help this facility meet its numerous daily requirements, we remain indebted”.
Last year, the Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility West Africa awarded QNET as the “E-Commerce CSR Company of the Year” for its commitment to helping society and creating positive change.
