CSR Middle East, CSR dedicated platform with 3.475 corporate members in the Middle East.
As Mother's Day celebrations rolled out across Lebanon, Alfa, the first Lebanese mobile operator managed by Orascom Telecom, celebrated the occasion with mothers in the media field. The celebration, which gathered the mothers over brunch in Zaitunay Bay's Cappuccino,honoured the mothers' dedication to both their families and their careers.
To take the joy a level deeper, mothers from SOS Children's Villages, an NGO sponsored by Alfa through the 'Alfa-4-Life' Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, joined the gathering and sharedtheir ownstories on motherhood within SOS. The testimonies were followed by a short movie about the vital role played by SOS in the Lebanese society. The warm and inspiringconversations brought to mind founder of Mother's Day Anna Jarvis, who was never married and didn't have any children of her own, yet appreciated the meanings of motherhood and made the world celebrate them. Finally, a talented girl from SOS presentedher own song for mothers, personally written and composed by her, touchingthe hearts of all attendants.
The Mother's Day event comes as a token of appreciation from Alfa to all mothers in Lebanon. The initiative draws its roots in Alfa's belief that there are huge opportunities for Lebanese women to enhance society and contribute to the country's economic development if supported properly, which Alfa is constantly working on. And on this special occasion, Alfa wishes a Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers!
