During Ramadan 1436 AH (June 2015), the Almazahmia Charity Association launched the Al-Fardous Waqf Project.
The project aims to provide an annual income to the charity association through building 30 apartments and 12 commercial halls, which will be rented out, to cover the monthly salary for thousands of orphans and disadvantaged families.
This income supports the families to become self-sufficient, and also delivers social and training programs, creating long-term opportunities for them in the labor market.
The program is overseen by the Ministry of Social Affairs.
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, we have provided aid and support to many of those families and individuals who have suffered as a result of the conflict.
We have provided food parcels, clothing, shoes, blankets, heaters and hygiene parcels to reduce the short-term suffering of those in most need and who have been so desperate for help and assistance.
We are also working to minimise the long-term harm that this conflict could cause, both psychologically and physically. To this end, Lamar Holding supports therapy for wounded women and children and covers the costs for treating and rehabilitating people who have required artificial limbs.
We have helped more than 6,000 families every year, and will continue to do so throughout the crisis. We have provided additional indirect support though our partnerships with official bodies such as the Royal Hashemite Charity Organization and the refugee camps.
In 2016, Lamar Holding sponsored the Second National Campaign for Eid Clothing Initiative, a project that provides clothing to those who need it throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan. That year, a 1,500 square meter exhibition area was required for the event to ensure we had enough clothes to meet demand.
Lamar Holding has sponsored the event again in 2017. Over the course of two years, the project has provided new clothes and shoes for almost 150,000 families.
