PDO staff raise RO 166,000 for Cyclone Mekunu relief

A charity appeal by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) employees to help the affected people of Cyclone Mekunu has raised a total of RO 166,000. The money will be used to repair houses damaged in the storms and will be divided between the southern wilayats in Dhofar and residents’ property that have been damaged in the Company’s concession area.
PDO’s External Affairs & Value Creation Director Abdul-Amir Abdul-Hussein al Ajmi presented the cheque to the Oman Charitable Organisation’s (OCO) Executive Chairman Ali Ibrahim Shenoon al Raisi at the Company’s headquarters. The OCO will ensure the money raised will be used as effectively as possible to help relieve the suffering of the many people who have lost their homes and livelihoods.
Earlier this week, PDO announced that the Company was donating RO 5 million to support affected people and the ongoing recovery efforts in the wake of last month’s tropical storm which hit Dhofar and Al Wusta Governorates.
