Muscat: Renovation and maintenance work on 33 houses belonging to low-income and social security families in different parts of Sur, was recently completed by Oman LNG.
The houses were restored as per the requirements of a project, which targeted families, including widowed, divorced and single parents in Tiwi, Ras Al Hadd, Qalhat and Bilad Sur.
As part of Oman LNG’s commitment to promoting a better quality of life for families subsisting on social security, this comes as part of an agreement signed with the Sur Social Development Committee targeting over 100 homes in
The restoration of houses is part of a wider effort to address home renovations for low-income families in the Wilayat of Sur.
The objective of the project is to repair old and dilapidated infrastructure, such as broken drainage, leaking roofs and cracks in walls, which raise daily problems for the families residing in these homes, some of whose family members are also disabled.
The project included, but was not limited to, building new rooms with toilets, particularly designed to meet the special needs of disabled family members and included adding hand rails, ramps and remodelling to the convenience and comfort of the home owners.
“The completion of the project demonstrates our ongoing commitment towards the community in Sur where, like much of Oman, we are investing in initiatives that will have an immediate, lasting, measurable impact on the lives of the people,” said Hilal Al Sinani, acting chief executive officer of the Oman LNG Development Foundation.
The foundation addresses many areas of social development in the country. Oman LNG has also been recognised by the Council of Ministers of Social Affairs for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) as the best company in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Oman.
