EQUATE Petrochemical Company, Kuwait’s first international joint venture in this industry, sponsored a walkathon organized by Rijeemy Center at 360 Mall during the holy month of Ramadan.
EQUATE Senior Executive for Corporate Communications & Government Affairs Abeer Al-Omar said, “With health and community awareness issues being two main elements in EQUATE Sustainability Program, we have continued our partnership with Rijeemy Center for the second consecutive year. This is part of supporting all relevant sustainability-based efforts throughout Kuwait for all segments of the society, including citizens and expats of both genders.”
Al-Omar, who also heads EQUATE Sustainability Committee, noted, “EQUATE believes that raising awareness about health related issues has a critical role in supporting overall sustainability in Kuwait. For that, throughout the years, EQUATE has launched a number of health and community awareness initiatives for a healthy lifestyle that includes regular athletic exercise, healthy nutrition, as well as relevant advice and guidelines.”
As part of EQUATE Sustainability Program, EQUATE has launched the Breast Cancer Awareness Program (Keep Your Life Rosy), EQUATE Initiative for a Healthy Society (Khaffif), EQUATE Awareness Campaign for Hypertension (Stay Normal) and EQUATE Awareness Campaign for Diabetes (Stay Normal 2). All initiatives were executed in cooperation with relevant organizations, public and others, as part of EQUATE’s tagline “Partners in Success” as it is also currently being applied with Rijeemy Center.
