Doha, Qatar – 8 March 2019: Quantum was recently voted one of the Top 50 SME’s of 2018 in Qatar and making a positive contribution within the global communities in which we live and work is something we take very seriously.
As an equal-opportunities organisation, Quantum is also fully committed to encouraging and enabling women to develop their careers in the construction industry. Today, Quantum’s international women are represented in our organisation from graduate to Executive Leadership Team level.
‘’To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March and as part of our Q’munity CSR programme, Quantum asked its ‘international women’ to propose a charity that would support ‘international women’ in the countries where we are based,’’ said Peter Murphy, Quantum Managing Director. ‘’Our global organisation has women represented in each of our offices and the response to our request for women’s related charity proposals was overwhelming. As an SME we had originally planned to support one charity but after researching the exceptional organisations proposed, and the valuable humanitarian work they undertake, we reviewed our plan and have committed to supporting all ten proposed global women and children charities throughout 2019,’’ Peter continued.
The charities selected include women and children organisations in the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
Speaking on one of the UK charities selected, Carolyn Elson said, ‘’I am very pleased that Quantum will support the Make a Wish Foundation this year. During my son’s illness some years ago, the Make a Wish Foundation, took him to Rangers Football Club, his favourite team, to meet the players and visit the trophy room. They also paid for us to go to Disney world in Florida – it truly made all his chemotherapy float away during that time and made him feel ‘normal’. It was amazing to see the faces of the children, including my son, getting these treats during their arduous medical treatments.’’
Irmak Kurt, based in Quantum’s Istanbul office also said, ‘’I am delighted that we will be able to support the Koruncuk Korunmaya Muhtaç Çocuklar Vakfı – Foundation for Children In Need of Protection. As with many countries, Turkey also has cases of child neglect. The charity has developed a ‘children’s village’ consisting of 10 – 12 houses which provide a healthy environment for children who need protection starting from pre-school age providing them with opportunities to improve themselves and prepare them for their life ahead. Our donation will go a long way to helping support their programmes and will have a direct benefit.’’
