Hand in Hand with Qatar and the World

Qtel is known for its highly effective and sustainable approach to CSR

At the heart of Qtel’s development strategy is their sustainable approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR). “We feel a responsibility to support the community in Qatar and the rest of the countries in which we operate,” says CEO Dr. Nasser Marafih. Education, healthcare, environmental issues, social welfare and sport represent the five key areas that Qtel has already been contributing towards in Qatar and abroad.

In healthcare, Qtel has established the Qtel Kidney Dialysis Center, which opened in August 2009. The 80-bed facility will host two floors with 38 dialysis units each.

As part of its “For Qatar, Hand in Hand” campaign, the Group also has made significant donations to the Zakat Fund, which provides opportunities for high potential, young scholars across Qatar. In education, Qtel is also a major supporter of original research within Qatar, financially enabling the creation of a wireless communication research laboratory in Education City in partnership with local universities.
