RJ to sponsor 50 families for an entire year

AMMAN, May 23, 2018

Royal Jordanian (RJ) has signed a partnership agreement with Tkiyet Um Ali Charity organization, whereby the carrier will sponsor 50 families from among Tkiyet Um Ali beneficiaries all year round, providing them monthly food parcels.

The airline distributed its first food parcels on May 22 to some underprivileged families from Zarqa Governorate.

According to the agreement, RJ will also sponsor one day of “Mawaed Al Rahman” iftar banquets, which Tkiyet Um Ali holds every Ramadan. This time, some 1,500 individuals will be fed at the charity premises in Al Mahatta area/Amman. RJ volunteers will serve iftar meals to these beneficiaries.

The agreement, signed by RJ president and CEO Stefan Pichler and Tkiyet Um Ali, director general Samer Balkar, supports the organisation’s pursuit to fight hunger and help the needy beneficiaries of Tkiyet Um Ali achieve sustainable food security. It also reflects RJ’s national role and its social responsibility to serve the local society.

Pichler expressed satisfaction with RJ's social partnerships, whose goal is to help society. RJ chose to start this campaign during the holy month of Ramadan, to help ease the financial burden on the targeted families. The families, whose monthly net income reaches JD20 (or less) for each individual, are entitled to receive food aid.
Pichler said that this latest agreement is testimony to Royal Jordanian's belief in the need to interact with the local community as part of its national duty and its social responsibility toward the underprivileged, and stressed that social responsibility is an essential element of the company's mission and values.

RJ will organize, in cooperation with other charitable organizations, several other iftars for hundreds of orphaned children and will distribute Eid clothing during the month of Ramadan. - TradeArabia News Service
