To reinforce its commitment towards giving back to the society, Global CIO Forum has kickstarted its Corporate Social Responsibility event, Ramadan 30*30. The event was held in partnership with Zulekha Hospital, Almarai and SmartLife. In the holy month of Ramadan, Global CIO Forum distributed Iftar meal boxes at Zulekha Hospital in Dubai. The beneficiaries included over 200 healthcare workers.
Global CIO Forum believes that companies that are socially responsible and strong advocates of community involvement have higher levels of engagement. Research shows that demonstrating social responsibility in the community is a key driver of employee engagement.
The yearlong CSR activities will be pathbreaking and live-touching programmes that will not only create a sustainable life for other members in the community, but also foster avenues for growing and co-existing.
Global CIO Forum’s CSR programme involves economic, social, and environmental sustainability initiatives. The CSR pillars include education, meal distribution, plantation, recycling, clean-up, energy and water conservation.
Commenting on the event, Ronak Samantaray, Co-Founder of Global CIO Forum said, “As a socially responsible company, we believe in giving back to the society. It is essential to fulfil our duty to the people of the community especially in tough times like the current pandemic. Our healthcare workers have been on the frontline in fighting the war against Covid-19 and we wanted to start our CSR activities with them. Our philosophy involves taking small steps towards making the lives of our community better.”
