COVID-19 updates

Kuwait Telecommunications Company - stc has announced the launch of its awareness campaign "Far yet close" to help spread awareness on the precautionary steps and methods to prevent viruses and diseases from spreading.

The initiative is within the framework of stc’s social responsibility agenda which focuses on health, safety and raising awareness.

As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) awareness campaigns focusing on health and well-being, stc is offering its customers staying at Khiran Resort and Al Joan Resort at Julai’a as well as the working staff in these two places unlimited local voice calls to support the current conditions related to the virus outbreak precautions taken in Kuwait.

The purpose of this campaign is to allow customers to connect with their loved ones and ease the precautionary measures taken by the country to ensure the safety of Kuwait community and contain the outbreak.

This campaign comes at a critical time with the risk of infectious viruses spreading rapidly worldwide, which led to stc’s constructive role in contributing towards the prevention of the virus to better serve the interests and safety of the Kuwaiti population.

This initiative, as well as others initiated by stc, are a reflection of the measures taken by the private sector to support the local community and protect our society.

In line with its health and well-being social responsibility initiatives, stc recently visited Kuwait International Airport to distribute face masks, sanitizers and information leaflets to airport staff, departing and returning passengers.

The medical items distributed to all individuals were provided by Ali AbdulWahab Al Mutawa Pharmaceuticals in cooperation with stc.

stc's contribution and attention towards spreading awareness on various health related matters over the years is a continuous and ongoing effort that the Company considers to be an essential pillar in its CSR agenda.

Educating the community and spreading awareness on how to prevent diseases is one of the keys to a healthier lifestyle, which goes hand in hand with stc’s business model and mission to enable the digital transformation in Kuwait.
