QFC Celebrate the International Day of Older Persons with Ehsan Visit

3 Oct 2017

On the occasion of the UN International Day of Older Persons and as part of the QFC’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives a number of QFC Regularity Authority, QFCRA, QFBA and QICDRC employees visited Qatar Foundation’s Centre for Empowerment and Elderly Care (EHSAN).

Commenting on the visit, Yousef Fakhroo, QFC Authority Chief Marketing Officer stated: "At the QFC we have always understood and valued the role senior citizens play in society. We owe so much to our elders who have paved the way for younger generations and continuously spared no effort to build our nation and create a promising future for generations to come." Fakhroo continued: "This year's theme is about tapping the talents, contributions and participation of older persons and this theme fits exactly into what EHSAN does. The elderly have a wealth of skills and experiences, have lived through many situations others cannot even imagine and continue to contribute to the economy and local communities. By visiting EHSAN our QFC employees gained further knowledge and understanding into how older people play a vital role in Qatar."
