Towards this priority, the company’s supports charity projects such as the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation Iftar Project through the distribution of LPG cylinders to needy families.

This Ramadan, ADNOC Distribution has also launched a 13-month internal campaign to raise funds for the UAE Red Crescent. The company will be directing the monthly contributions of its employees via an internal system that has been implemented for this initiative. Additionally, the company is distributing dates and water at its service stations during Iftar. Aiming to help those unable to reach their destinations on time for Iftar, the initiative also seeks to reduce road accidents caused by speeding during the rush hour.

"As part of our support to various Iftar projects, ADNOC Distribution makes simple but meaningful contributions such as providing 5,346 gas cylinders to 261 needy women during this holy month. In doing so, we aim to ease some of their financial burden and assure peace of mind during Ramadan. We also laud the efforts of our staff in coming together to raise funds for the UAE Red Crescent. It is only through such collective participation that we can hope to make a difference to the communities we serve.”
