In total, 1,530 school bags were packed and prepared by the volunteers on Saturday, August 15. The bags were then delivered to eight charity organizations which then distributed these bags to needy children in the Jubail Industrial City, Jubail City, Nariyah, Mulayjah, Al Khafji, Al Rufay’ah and Dareen areas.

Each school bag contains a total of 18 items required by students for the school year, in addition to some gifts to celebrate the National Day of Saudi Arabia.

Khalid Al Hamid, Engineering Director, Sadara Chemical Company, who was one of the volunteers at the event, said, “The School Bag initiative is an important and worthy cause; one that we at Sadara are extremely proud to sponsor. All of the volunteers who participated this year showed their strong commitment and unfailing dedication to supporting and improving the Jubail community. We believe that giving back is a cornerstone of our success at Sadara and, as a member of the Jubail community, it is essential for us to continue to strive to improve ourselves, our community and our business in order to live up to the expectations of our stakeholders. ”

About Sadara:

Sadara is a joint venture developed by the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company. With a total investment of about $20 billion, Sadara is building a world scale chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. Comprised of 26 world scale manufacturing units, the Sadara complex is the world’s largest to be built in a single phase and will be the first in the Middle East to use refinery liquids, such as naphtha, as feedstock. By using best-in-class technologies to crack refinery liquid feedstock, Sadara will enable many industries that either currently do not exist in Saudi Arabia or only exist through imports of raw materials. The adjacent PlasChem Park, a unique collaboration between Sadara and the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, will create more value downstream, generating unprecedented investment, innovation, economic growth and thousands of jobs. Sadara is on track to deliver its first products in the second half of 2015, with the complex in full operation in 2016.
