Eagle Hills Jordan partners with Tkiyet Um Ali

Amman, Jordan – July 10, 2016; As part of its ongoing, annual partnership with Tkiyet Um Ali and on behalf of its projects in Aqaba, Saraya Aqaba and Marsa Zayed’s Al Raha Village, Eagle Hills Jordan, the private real estate investment and development company, continued an initiative to distribute food parcels to underprivileged families endorsed by Tkiyet Um Ali in various locations throughout Aqaba. Eagle Hills Jordan partnered with Tkiyet Um Ali for the initiative to play an active role in eradicating hunger, underscoring its ongoing commitment to support the local community in Aqaba.

Through this partnership, Eagle Hills Jordan will be taking part in the distribution of food parcels to hundreds of families in a number of neighbourhoods in Aqaba during the holy month of Ramadan and until the end of 2016. The parcels contain food commodities that cover the nutritional needs of a family for a whole month, allowing them to prepare three meals on a daily basis.

Commenting on the occasion, CEO of Eagle Hills Jordan Alaa Batayneh said, "At Eagle Hills Jordan, we firmly believe in the inseparability of private sector entities and the well-being of those living in the communities in which we are present. As such, our continuous work with Tkiyet Um Ali serves as a major proof point of our dedication to the citizens of Aqaba and of our genuine interest in their collective prosperity.”

Director General of Tkiyet Um Ali Samer Balkar said, “This partnership reflects the commitment of Eagle Hills Jordan to support the local community and its prominent role therein, lending a helping hand to those living in extreme poverty. Through such partnerships and the involvement of the private sector in supporting Tkiyet Um Ali, we will be able to move closer to achieving our goal of a hunger-free Jordan."

The collaboration with Tkiyet Um Ali to combat hunger comes in a series of initiatives undertaken by Eagle Hills Jordan on behalf of its projects to reach different segments of the population, touching and improving the lives of countless citizens. In Aqaba, Eagle Hills Jordan is developing and managing two projects: Saraya Aqaba, a mixed-use luxury development set to transform the city into a bustling hub for tourism, leisure and living, and Al Raha Village, the first private residential neighbourhood of Marsa Zayed.
