The Khimji Ramdas Group called lights out at 8.30 p.m. on March 29th in support of World Earth Hour.
The initiative formed part of the Environment Society of Oman’s (ESO) Earth Hour campaign of which the KR group was among key participating corporate members.
For a whole hour, between 8.30 p.m. and 9.30 p.m. Its entire corporate wing and various divisions, including The Bollywood Restaurant, turned off all non-essential electrical lights.
Khimji Ramdas organized its annual blood donation drive in association with Blood Bank of Oman, MOH on August 19, 2011 at Al Falaj Hotel, Muscat.
356 people including KR employees, their families and friends came forward and volunteered to donate blood for a noble cause. This is the largest blood donation for KR compared to its previous years.
The holy month of Ramadan is a period of giving and sharing with our brothers and sisters. At KR, we believe, our annual blood donation drive strongly reflects our core values of Trust, Care and Commitment to the people of Oman. Such initiatives will go a long way in saving lives and reaching the needy in time thus alleviating shortage of blood.
