DSI reaches out to underprivileged

Drake and Scull Foundation established to encourage “pragmatic CSR”

A regional market leader in integrated design, engineering and construction, has today announced plans for an initiative to help underprivileged sections of society.

Drake & Scull International PJSC (DSI) set up the Drake and Scull Foundation (DSF) alongside their day to day work in construction, covering MEP, civil contracting and water and power. The new entity is launched to initiate, fund and organise Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

“We believe that the establishment of the foundation will encourage companies in the region to adopt pragmatic CSR programs that drive lasting change and sustained support for communities in need,” said Zeina Tabari chief corporate affairs officer and MD of the new foundation.

“The vision of Drake and Scull Foundation (DSF) is catalyzing efforts to make a real difference in our communities, by providing basic needs like food, clothing, education and medical assistance for disadvantaged people, in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

“The underlying moral of the foundation is ‘Give Back’. Our objective is to align our business operations with social values and to promote socially responsible business practices that contribute to the enhancement of the overall welfare of our surrounding communities,” Tabari continued.

“The gap in social divides is growing and we hope we that the foundation will pave the way for continuous contribution and collaborative efforts between regional companies to address these human challenges and to making a real difference in shaping tomorrow’s future and building a safe and healthy environment for generations to come,’’ Zeina added.
