Mawarid Mining lends its support to the Oman Association for Disabled in Sohar

Mawarid Mining LLC, the mining and exploration arm of the MB Group of Companies places strong emphasis in giving back to the community within which it operates. In keeping with the broad categories identified and finalized by its parent company MB Holding Company, Mawarid Mining LLC has lent its support to the Oman Association for Disabled in Sohar.

Oman Association for Disabled was registered in 1995 pursuant to a Ministerial Decision. It is a Non-Governmental Organisation established to provide support, education and recreational activities for people with disabilities. The association also works towards achieving a better understanding of the needs of people with disabilities in the wider community.
As part of the agreement, Mawarid Mining LLC will provide 15 Cerebral palsy wheel chairs), 15 Leisure & Sports wheel chairs, 10 Steel wheel chairs, 3 Power wheel chairs and 3 Electric bed with mattresses to the association, which will be given to the differently abled countrymen in the wilayats of Sohar, Shinas, Liwa and Khabourah.

Tariq Al Barwani, CEO, Mawarid Mining LLC, says, “At Mawarid Mining, we always look at new ways in which we can give back to the community. The company believes in mining with a human face and firmly supports the cause of a socially sustainable society through the implementation of community development programmes such as this one. Through this contribution, we hope to make a difference in the lives of the differently abled people and put a smile on their face.”

Yahya bin Abdullah Al Amri, Chairman, Oman Association for Disabled, adds, “We would like to offer our heartfelt appreciation to Mawarid Mining LLC for this kind gesture. Since our association is non-governmental, we rely on the private sector companies as well as individuals to help fund our activities and needs. Through this generous contribution, Mawarid Mining LLC has proved that it truly cares for the community. I hope this gesture encourages other corporates to come forward and support our association.”

Mawarid is the first private sector mining company engaged in exploration and development of copper and gold deposits in the Sultanate of Oman. Mawarid’s quest for resource growth has seen it expand exploration activities beyond Oman into Tanzania, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia in search of copper and gold deposits.
