Qatar Steel is committed to support the local community through a number of initiatives that are intentionally designed to empower the sustainable development of a flourishing society. The company recognizes that there are a number of challenges the local society faces, and accordingly attempts to implement varied initiatives to support a further reach of individuals. When investing in the community, Qatar Steel employs a focused approach, directly investing in organi-zations which will have the greatest impact on the local community. Qatar Steel is particularly interested in partnering with non-profit and charitable organizations that empower people with the skills, tools and information to improve their standards of living.
While in 2017 Qatar Steel experienced a decrease in its community investment budget, the contributions increased by 40.8% in 2018. Especially Qatar Cancer Society and the Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs were involved in this work. The work they do benefits all of us, and so Qatar Steel was honored of such collaboration by providing financial assistance of QR 50,000 to the Qatar Cancer Society to support its patients and QR 30,000 to the Qatar Rehabilitation Society for Special Needs.
