Muscat: Dar Al Atta'a has collected more than OMR400,000 to help rebuild homes in Dhofar that were either destroyed or damaged by Cyclone Mekunu in May this year, the charity announced on Tuesday.
"The response so far has been great and the organisation has collected about OMR433,000 to help restore the affected houses in Dhofar," said Eman Al Wahaibi, Vice Chairperson at Dar Al Atta'a.
"However, the money will only help with the reconstruction of 40 houses, as we have allocated OMR10,000 per house and our target is 100 houses. Therefore, in this regard, we request everyone to come forward and be part of our campaign 'Together for Oman'," Al Wahaibi said.
She added that the organisation has gotten in touch with local construction companies in Dhofar, who will also benefit from this drive by getting business.
Bushra Al Balushi, Marketing Executive at Dar Al Atta'a added that funds will be collected until the end of the year. "All those who are willing to donate for this cause can submit it directly at Dar Al Atta'a in Bausher, e-donation through the website on the Information Technology Authority, or by transferring money through Bank Muscat," Al Balushi explained.
