Royal Jordanian invites 200 orphans for Iftar and distributes goodwill parcels in the Jordan Valley
Amman- July 9, 2014- Royal Jordanian invited 200 orphans from different charity organizations for an iftar banquet at the Children’s Museum of Jordan, one of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah’s non-profit educational organizations.
Every year, RJ holds several iftars for a big number of orphans and individuals with special needs coming from different areas around the kingdom, translating into deeds its intention of serving the society and helping the less fortunate.
Some of the RJ employees joined the orphans during the iftar at the museum, sharing their happy moments of their tour. The children expressed joy during their visit to the museum; it was a unique educational experience they gained by exploring and experimenting with numerous activities, and learning through playing.
RJ opted to start this year’s Ramadan campaign in the Jordan Valley, Zarqa and Southern Shouneh, delivering hundreds of aid parcels to the less privileged citizens, in cooperation with the social development directorates.
The Ramadan campaign has become a part of the airline’s corporate social responsibility and of its interaction with the local community. The company feels it is its duty toward the nation and its responsibility toward the less fortunate to help, so it carries out these campaigns, based on the values, religion and morals of the Jordanian society. Sustainable corporate social responsibility is an essential element of the airline’s work and values.
This year’s campaign will also see RJ host more iftar banquets and distributing aid parcels for the less fortunate categories in the kingdom.
