Muscat: As part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, The Wave, Muscat has begun distributing dates harvested from the waterfront community's 1,200 fruit bearing palm trees to low-income families.

For the third consecutive year during the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Annual Date Donation Drive is being run in partnership with the Dar Al Atta'a charitable organisation and is being supported by volunteers from The Wave, Muscat.

Hafidh bin Nasser Al Maskary, Corporate Communication Manager at The Wave, Muscat, said: "As a responsible project, The Wave, Muscat is proud to be supporting such an initiative during the month of giving and demonstrating how community welfare and business success are truly inseparable. Our annual date donation drive is proving to be successful year on year, leading by example, involving our staff and teaming up with a reputable charity to spread the joys and blessings of the Holy Month of Ramadan with surrounding communities."

"During this time, it is important to remember people in need and by combining our efforts with The Wave, Muscat to make a difference, we are able to inspire others to follow suit and give back to the community," said Maryam Al Zadjali, Chairperson of Dar Al Atta'a.

"We are delighted to continue our partnership with The Wave, Muscat for the third year in a row and look forward to future collaborations in efforts to further enhance the livelihood of low income families," Maryam added.

The Wave, Muscat extends along six kilometres of coastline and is made up of a wide range of residential, hospitality, commercial and retail facilities. The master-planned development also includes world class leisure facilities, such as Almouj Golf, Oman's only PGA designed standard 18 hole golf course, and Almouj Marina, Oman's largest private marina, to deliver lifestyle and leisure experiences.
