Muscat: Achieving yet another milestone in its mission to support communities across the Sultanate of Oman, the Khimji Ramdas (KR) Eshraqa Foundation recently completed its annual social development projects in Wilayat Bahla. 

Since its inception in 2016, the KR Eshraqa Foundation has provided support to seven Wilayats, reflecting its unwavering commitment to social development. To commemorate this achievement, the Eshraqa team visited Wilayat Bahla and met with Sheikh Said bin Ali Al Naimi, Wali of Bahla. During the visit, the team, accompanied by the Wali, toured the government institutions that have benefited from Eshraqa’s support, including schools, hospitals, health centers, Al Wafa centers, the Omani Women’s Association, and the Bahla Charity Team.

The Eshraqa Foundation’s contributions in Wilayat Bahla encompassed several key areas:

Education: The Foundation supported 36 schools by providing Smart TVs, tablets, virtual reality glasses, and educational kits, significantly enhancing the learning environment for students.

Community Wellbeing: Eshraqa installed sensory room equipment at Al-Wafa Center, donated a bus to the Omani Women’s Association, and provided ACs, fridges, and cookers to underprivileged families through the Bahla Charity Team. Additionally, the Foundation installed a solar station in Nadan Village and donated appliances to the residents, promoting sustainable living and energy efficiency.

Health: The Foundation supported Bahla Hospital and government health centers by providing essential medical equipment, including defibrillators, patient beds, and ECG machines, thereby improving healthcare services for the local community.
