RAMADAN EMPLOYEE VOLUNTARY
FAYROUZ CONTINUES TO CARE (2016)
This year, Ramdan was different with Fayrouz. Because Fayourz really cares, we have decided to continue to participate and distribute Ramadan charity bags to people in need and draw many smiles on people’s faces. This year, we have decided to take out of our time and assemble Ramadan bags ourselves. We asked for volunteers to give us their time and efforts to put together Fayrouz Ramadan bags and fill it with the products that will be distributed to people in need. We managed to cover different geographical areas and put more smiles on people faces by using the funny props to take pictures with them. We have assembled 750 to draw 750 smiles across people’s faces.
In cooperation with Fayrouz Team, we have launched an internal compeition to drive the volunteering and engagement spirit within ABC and ensure more outreach to people in real need within the communities we serve. We believed that the competition spirit can be spiced up with social media to make it more enjoyable, engaging and effective, so we have launched a completion of uploading pictures on #Fayrouzcares on Instagram and the most likes gets a gift. We managed to cover different geographical areas that we didnt reach before like Qalioubia, Hurghada and Alexandria. We had 62 participants who distributed 1500 bags across 5 locations.

Fayrouz announced its commitment and participation in the initiative by donating EGP 250,000 worth of blankets to the Orman Charity Association. “Fayrouz Clothes Bank” was also a success as employees donated clothes and other items as part of the initiative.
FAYROUZ SQUARE PROJECT
ABC is keen to giving back to the community and supporting our license to operate. Creating a landmark in the neighboring community was the initiative that triggered the Fayrouz Square project. Developing the square was no easy job, from acquiring government approval and licenses, to relocating the sewage pipes and telephone cables and providing suitable water for irrigation all in 45 days. Also, great efforts and support were given from government entities, including Obour City Council, New Urban Communities Authority and the Ministry of Housing. ABC was granted approval to develop a Gate for Obour City to provide more security not only to ABC employees but also to all neighboring factories.
Fayrouz is dedicated to contributing positively to CSR projects in the areas where it operates through its cooperation with government entities for social development.” Jan-Kees Nieman, MD ABC
