Lamar is committed to good corporate citizenship and helping the communities in which we operate. Over the last 15 years we have made significant financial contributions to projects that we believe will make a positive long-term impact in society.
Some of our recent projects have included
The aim of the project is to empower women from different backgrounds and nationalities by developing their cooking and sewing skills into micro businesses. The Arzaq project was financed and executed through the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, which aims to develop local and refugee families.
Hearing without Borders Initiative in Jordan
In Jordan today there are over 19,000 deaf children. In October 2015, Lamar worked with the Crown Prince Hearing without Borders Initiative to provide a one-off donation to fund the cost of upgrading 50 old external hearing devices with brand new high-tech Opus 2 Audio processor devices.
The Productive Kitchen project in Bahrain
Lamar has supported the Productive Kitchen project for many years. The impact of this approach has been felt throughout the local area by supporting the creation of job opportunities for women who previously struggled to access employment – many of whom are widows and looking to develop their skills and their ability to provide healthy meals for their family.
Refugee support in Syria
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis 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. Lamar also supports therapy for wounded women and children and covers the costs for treating and rehabilitating people who have required artificial limbs.
Emergency COVID-19 support in Jordan and Bahrain
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Lamar has worked tirelessly to provide assistance to healthcare systems that are struggling under pressure, including in Jordan, where the company has donated 75 electric hospital beds to the Ministry of Health. In Bahrain, Lamar has donated money to the government effort, and also made financial donations to the national campaign, “Feena Khair” (there is good in us).
