Cengiz Oztelcan, CEO of GBI, said, “This was our first initiative and we are very happy to have been able to participate and give back during the holy month of Ramadan. We also look forward to continuing to work with Qatar Charity with various upcoming initiatives to make a positive impact in our community in Qatar.”
