RJ donates sewing machines to women on Mother’s Day

Amman, The Royal Jordanian (RJ) chose mothers from Adhruh village, in Ma’an governorate, south of Amman, to celebrate Mother’s Day, which is observed tomorrow.

RJ team visited the village Tuesday to honor a group of women who completed a course in sewing by offering them sewing machines which would help them work and sustainably support their families.

The event, which was held in cooperation with the Association of Training and Qualifying Jordanian Women, included distributing 30 sewing machines and symbolic gifts. The women expressed thanks and happiness for this gesture, praising the RJ for always staying connected with communities all over Jordan, as well as for its significant efforts to boost the concept of sustainable development and social solidarity values.

President/CEO Stefan Pichler stressed that RJ is keen to lend continuous support to the local community, on different occasions marked throughout the year, in view of its role as Jordan’s national carrier and a pillar of its economic structure. He also recalled the key role the private sector plays in helping to reduce poverty and unemployment, in addition to improving the quality of life in remote areas of the country.

” RJ takes its social responsibility very seriously, considering it a duty that goes along with its main responsibility of serving the national economy”, he added.

The head of the Association of Training and Qualifying Jordanian Women, Munifa Al Jazi, praised the national carrier initiatives through which it interacts with members of the society, as well as the company’s contribution to offer help to those in need, especially when it creates opportunities to help women to become independent and support their families economically.

Al Jazi also highlighted the importance of training and qualifying Jordanian women to face poverty and challenges the Jordanian society suffer from.
