We are actively engaged with the communities in Saudi Arabia with supporting and other social activities including sponsoring mass weddings for those couples and families unable to afford the expense on their own.
We have entered into a informal relationship with other companies such as Unilever to promote healthcare in Al Laith with our first project encouraging better dental hygiene. Other initiatives include dietary advice to help combat the common incidences of diabetes and obesity in the Saudi Arabia.
We are supporting the local fishing industry through the development of a new Fishermen's Village, which includes providing housing and other facilities to ensure the local fishing industry can prosper.
Our largest programme is with the King Abdullah Foundation with which we sponsor the Al Galla Training Facility for women. Here local women may take courses in computer technology, dressmaking and other basic skills with which to enter the local economy. We employ some of the women in our Ladies' Processing Plant on our site and we hope this will continue to grow.
