“Those who suffer from mental health problems should know that they are not alone and everybody goes through it at some point in life. It is important to speak out instead of feeling bad about it.”

Qais Al Khonji

“Business people who have invested in this fund do so to fund Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The number of clients have increased. Today, we have reached a level where we fund about 20 projects.”



Mohammed Hamad Al Harthy

“I teach everyone how to use Braille. It is the language of visually challenged people. I started teaching 20 years ago. Anyone who is blind, I help them. I have many students and I teach them Braille.”

Ahmed Ali Al Ma’amari

“Spreading the solar energy culture among the Omani community is an urgent necessity at this time, and we should take advantage of the available solar energy in the Sultanate.”

Basmat Amal Charity Organisation

Giving an orphan a place to call home and a family to love and be loved is one of the most rewarding experiences one could ever go through, and it is, without a doubt, a deed that ranks way up on God’s list of rewards.

Hitesh Matlani

“Running is just another form of meditation or way of releasing that stress or for others a way of channelling the energy. I want to run around 100 cities one day.”

Doaa Elseoud

“I had my moments at the first week when I got diagnosed, but I found that the mental health is the number one treatment for cancer. Being positive and accepting the illness and the treatment is the key to fight cancer.”

Hassan Meer

“There are many talented people in Oman but unfortunately most people had this notion that art is only about canvas and painting. The whole concept of art has changed and it’s not limited to only brush and paint.”

Waleed Al Hashmi

“I don’t need my eyes to see, I see through my heart. I make pens, salt and pepper holders, and candle stands. I lost my eyesight at the age of 15.”

Khalid bin Khusaif bin Said Al Hasani

“One thing good about our initiative is that even though we focus on orphans, when we host events or sponsor a community event, we do not segregate, but make it a community affair by involving all.”

Sayyida Mayya Al Said

“I’m a Muslim woman who wears a head scarf and I speak English. I wanted to be a positive influence and educate those from the west and other parts of the world that we’re not oppressed.”

New Muttrah Fish Market

Located close to Port Sultan Qaboos, the new fish market, built adjacent to the old one, is attracting not just the residents of Oman but tourists from the cruise ships.
