Over RO6mn of help pledged by organizations for relief function in Dhofar, Al Wusta

Over RO6mn help has currently been announced by organizations functioning to help rehabilitation function in impacted places.

Chaired by H E Dr Mohammed bin Hamad al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas and Board of Directors of Oman LNG authorized RO5mn to help relief efforts in places impacted by Cyclone Mekunu in Dhofar and Al Wusta governorates. “The efforts are part of Oman LNG’s response to ease lives of ordinary people,” the organization stated.

The organization added that the economic help underpins Oman LNG’s pioneering part towards social duty, supporting the tremendous efforts by the government to stimulate recovery for the impacted places in the aftermath of the cyclone.

“The RO5mn initiative follows earlier immediate relief efforts by Oman LNG for the Dhofar and Al Wusta governorates where trucks loaded with emergency supplies were delivered to the families effected by Cyclone Mekunu,” it stated.

Last week, BankDhofar also had announced RO1mn contribution. “In demonstration of our solidarity with the affected families, the Board of Directors of BankDhofar decided to contribute RO1mn to support citizens in Dhofar and Al Wusta governorates. The amount will be managed in coordination with the Oman Charitable Organization,” the bank stated.

Immediately following the cyclone Salalah Airport and Omantel had announced contribution of RO100,000 each and every for relief function in Dhofar.

In a statement, Oman Airports had stated, “Through Salalah Airport we are please to make a financial contribution of RO100,000 as a part of our national duty and social responsibility.”

Omantel had announced its contribution on May 26, stating, “We announce the allocation of RO100,000 to help households impacted by Cyclone Mekunu in the two governorates.

“We will work with the competent authorities to implement this initiative.”
