BRIEF – Ooredoo donates school supplies to children’s foundation

Embattled telecommunications company Ooredoo Myanmar donated food and school supplies last week to the Mettananda Foundation, an organisation that provides shelter, food and educational support to children and orphans in Burma. A team of Ooredoo representatives donated lunch to 350 children in the foundation on 10 June, as well as backpacks, pens and school exercise books. The donation comes amidst an anti-Ooredoo campaign led by a Rangoon monastery to urge the public to boycott their products as the company is based in a Muslim country, Qatar.
