An official delegation of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company Qatar LLC (Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar) has recently presented to Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) a QR 360,000 donation check as part of QRCS's annual 'Together for Benevolence' program. The program aims to support expatriate workers and promote corporate social responsibility (CSR) in humanitarian activities. This year's initiative focuses on securing the basic needs of 4,500 expatriate workers during the winter, by distributing 3,500 food packages and 1,000 winter clothing bags at their worksites countrywide in Qatar. The food packages will be composed of basic food staples like rice, sugar, oil, tea, and canned foods, while the clothing bags will contain blankets, gloves, scarves, socks, and caps. The Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar delegation comprised Mitchell Eichelberger, President; Darren Ercolani, Finance Manager; and Ricardo Costa Almeida, Human Resources Specialist. The guests were welcomed by Ali Hassan Al-Hammadi, Secretary-General of QRCS; Saad Shaheen Al-Kaabi, Director of Resources Mobilization; Issa Mohamed Al Ishaq, Director of Communication; and Hamid Moharrar, Head of Corporate Relations. Mr. Al-Hammadi commended the bilateral partnership as being in the best interest of Qatari society, particularly expatriate workers. The Secretary-General proclaimed that this donation is aligned with the country's national strategy of allocating considerable funds to improve the living standards of expatriate workers and ensure their welfare, thus making the work environment in Qatar example among labor importing countries. "This year, we will focus on winterization and food aid to protect expatriate workers against the cold weather," he added. Mr. Eichelberger said, "We are pleased to reinforce our relationship and commitment with QRCS in its vision to contribute to social and humanitarian services, specifically supporting expatriate workers during the winter in the state of Qatar". The first two versions of 'Together for Benevolence' successfully covered more than 48,000 workers. During the program's execution, QRCS teamed up with Chevron Phillips Chemical Qatar's officials to visit various worksites to distribute meals, water and juice bottles, and hygiene kits, in coordination with the concerned corporations and bodies.
