QNET brings Idul Fitri cheer to underprivileged

JAKARTA, 15 August 2012. – QNET today treated 50 children from the Al-Andalusia Foundation, an Islamic orphanage here, to food, fun and games as part of a breaking of fast event, in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan.

The event, which was carried out under the QNET Pays Forward (QNPF) initiative reflects the company’s strong loyalty and willingness to participate in community efforts in Indonesia.

QNPF is a CSR initiative carried out under the philosophy “Raise Yourself To Help Mankind” (RYTHM) which reflects QNET’s commitment to help all segments of society.

During the event, the children enjoyed themselves with lots of games and took part in a drawing competition as well. A storyteller was also on hand to share with them the message of how to live as morally upright members of society.

“We have previously provided aid to tsunami victims in Aceh and Medan in North Sumatera, and earthquake victims in Yogyakarta, Central Jakarta and Padang in West Sumatera.

“This apart, we have also given scholarships to 200 children of tsunami victims in Aceh and Medan for three consecutive years, and donated computers for schools in Acheh,” she said.

Additionally, Wita said QNET representatives went to Yogyakarta soon after the earthquake in 2006 to provide food, tents and home supplies to the victims there. The company also provided aid to the Yogyakarta Government apart from building a kindergarten in Pandak Village, Pijenan.
