AGT Treats Labourers To A Special Iftar
Labourers living in three Dubai camps were treated to a special Iftar thanks to leading sustainable investment group, AGT, in a Volunteer in Dubai initiative.
- (1888PressRelease) August 01, 2012 - As part of AGT's Corporate Social Responsibility programme, 34 volunteers packed 800 meals at a city catering company before distributing to the donated meals of water, dates, laban, chicken biryani and rice to the labourers of Duscat 2 Camp in Al Quoz.
Lola Lopez, founder of Volunteer in Dubai, the charity that organised the Iftar, says: "I'm so very grateful to companies such as AGT who came forward without a moment's hesitation to support our hardworking labour force. AGT has joined hands with the cause, quite literally by volunteering many of their own staff's time as well as sponsoring the meals, making the offering so much more meaningful to the men, who, more often than not, feel they are invisible to others."
Ramesh Jagiri, a labourer from Andhra in India who has worked on Dubai construction projects for over five years, says: "The food was delicious and everyone I have spoken to has really enjoyed it, so thank you to everyone involved in making this happen."
Leona Curtis-Oliver, AGT's Group Marketing Director, says: "AGT is primarily concerned with trading Carbon Credits and encouraging companies to offset their environmental damage through their own CSR strategies. Therefore this is an opportunity for us to 'walk the talk' and play our part within one of our local communities."
A global leader in the verified carbon market AGT currently employs over 200 people across the GCC with offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha and plans for further offices across the region.
