Ooredoo, an international communications company headquartered in Qatar, has donated three sea ambulances to the Ministry of Health in the Maldives.
The donation comes following Ooredoo’s earlier commitment to support the Government of the Maldives in providing quality healthcare to its citizens.
The donation aims to support the nation’s existing sea ambulance fleet, which operates from across the country and plays a vital role in delivering health care to people living throughout the dispersed islands.
HE Sheikh Abdulla Bin Mohammed Al Thani, Chairman of Ooredoo Group, said: “We are delighted to add three sea ambulances to the nation’s emergency response fleet over water.
“We have handed over two of these sea ambulances, with the third to follow before the end of the year. Improving access to basic healthcare for communities is something we are passionate about and it is our sincere hope that our donation can help bring ease to communities who require urgent healthcare, and medical attention, outside of their home islands.”
Ooredoo operates across the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia and delivers a broad range of content and services via its advanced, data-centric mobile and fixed networks.
The event was attended by Chairman of Ooredoo Group, HE Sheikh Abdulla Bin Mohammed Al Thani, and Deputy CEO of Ooredoo Group, Waleed Mohamed Al-Sayed.
