Emgas to distribute free LPG refills
Dubai, July 13, 2013
Emirates Gas (Emgas), a business subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company, will be distributing free Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) refills to underprivileged families of widows and orphans in Dubai, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain till the end of the year.
Organised with the support of Dar Al Ber Society as part of Ramadan activities, the LPG refill distribution campaign is now an annual CSR activity by Emgas, which has earned the CSR Label award from Dubai Chamber for its committed efforts to societal welfare and environmental care.
Emgas has been partnering with Dar Al Ber Society for the campaign since 2011, highlighting the company’s commitment to foster a sense of belonging and make a meaningful contribution to the local community.
The beneficiaries will be identified by Dar Al Ber Society and Emgas will provide them with gift vouchers entitling them to refill a 22 kg domestic cylinder for free at any time during Ramadan until the end of the year.
The campaign has been specially planned taking into consideration the increased demand for cooking gas during Ramadan, said Emgas, the largest supplier of LPG in the UAE.
Hesham Ali Mustafa, the senior director of Enoc Gas Marketing and General Manager of Emirates Gas, said: “The distribution of free LPG refills is a key component of our CSR activities, especially during Ramadan. We are committed to supporting underprivileged families, and thank Dar Al Ber Society for their continued support."
"The campaign has been extremely successful over the last three years, when we provided the free LPG refill coupons to 300 families in Dubai and the Northern Emirates yearly," he noted.
Hisham Ahmed Al Zahrani, the manager of Zakat and Seasonal Projects Department at Dar Al Ber Society, said the collaboration is in line with the Society’s Ramadan campaign, and aligns perfectly with the spirit of compassion and tolerance that reflects the Holy Month.-TradeArabia News Service
