The brands are Siniora, Sadia, Seara, Mazzraty, Arla, KDD, Dandy, Coca Cola, Heinz, Bahlsen, Weetabix, Kellogg’s, McVitie’s, Panzani, Rafael Salgado, Hello Panda, Magic Time, Green’s, Colgate, Oral-B, Crest, Gilette, Schick, Olay, Neutrogena, OGX, Harpic, Clorox, and Lusail.
Speaking on the collaboration, Al Meera stated:
“We are pleased to announce the launch of the Ramadan Crescent Festival hand in hand with the Qatar Red Crescent Society which aims to help families in need. This initiative makes it possible for our customers to contribute easily during their daily or weekly shopping at Al Meera. We are committed to the well-being of our communities and strive to create opportunities where we can help each other out, and what better time to launch such an initiative than in the holy month of Ramadan.”
“We look forward to working alongside Al Meera to raise money for families who need it the most. This year has been an especially difficult time for many people who are still recovering from the shock of the pandemic and through the Ramadan Crescent Festival, we hope to alleviate some of their burden. We thank everyone who is participating to make this happen, especially the customers who will shop with the intention of donating and the brands that have joined the cause and made this possible.”
The collaboration is in line with Al Meera’s long standing commitment to the QRCS which has included many initiatives. Last year alone, Al Meera and QRCS worked closely together to implement precautionary measures and ensure a safe and secure environment for customers at a challenging time in the (COVID-19) pandemic.
