PDO raises RO170,000 for victims of Yemen crisis.

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has donated RO169,293.880 to help victims of the humanitarian crisis in Yemen following a staff charity appeal. Over 1,700 employees contributed financially to help relieve the sufA[degrees] fering of Yemeni citizens caused by instability, largeA[degrees]scale displaceA[degrees] ment, food insecurity and child malnutrition in the country, a press release said.

PDO's Oil South director Suleiman al Tobi handed over the cheque to the Oman Charitable Organisation's (OCO) executive chairman Ali Ibrahim al Raisi at OCO's head office in Muscat. PDO is working with OCO, which is subA[degrees] ject to governmental financial

supervision, to effectively utilise the money for humanitarian aid and to support the people of Yemen. Suleiman said, "I would like to thank all PDO employees who have generously contributed to this noble cause, during Ramadan. It is all about reflecting spiritually, having empathy for those who are less fortunate and encouraging actions of generosity. Our staff have once again requestA[degrees] ed us to organise an appeal and then voluntarily made contribuA[degrees] tions from their monthly salaries. I would also like to thank OCO for their tremendous and continuous support to PDO in helping channel the money to where it is most needed."
