- PRESS RELEASE
Kulluna, a campaign by Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and ConocoPhillips Qatar, took its message of health and safety to International School of London Qatar (ISLQatar) Family Food Fair recently.
Children and parents participated in activities at the display, which uses technology such as iPads to engage the audience with its safety message during the popular Family Food Fair which is held annually by the school.
Mr. Christopher Charleson, Head of ISLQatar, said, "The school was very pleased that Kulluna has accepted our invitation to raise home safety awareness at the community event."
"We are proud that our students were involved in this initiative by assisting the Kulluna team at the booth. We see this involvement as both an opportunity for our students to learn as well as to make a difference in the community," he added.
Dr. Khalid Abdulnoor Saifeldeen, Director of the Hamad International Training Center (HITC) and Senior Consultant Emergency Medicine, said, "Attending the fair was a great opportunity to spread Kulluna's message of health and safety to a wider audience."
"Each year more than 40,000 children aged 14 and under suffer injuries every year. In fact 85% of all injuries to children occur in the home and all of these are preventable. The injuries tend to fall into six main categories - falls, burns, drowning, being hit by cars in the driveway, choking and poisoning. We were pleased with ISLQatar's invitation to educate the visitors of the International Family Food Fair how to prevent such incidents. The Kulluna display is dedicated to keeping our children safe at home by using fun interactive educational games as well as a giant kitchen to show parent a child's perspective," he added.
Gary Sykes, ConocoPhillips President in Qatar, said, "We are extremely happy to continue supporting the Kulluna campaign. Awareness of the various hazards faced by our children at home is a very important task that we are happy to support. The Kulluna team has done a remarkable job so far and we are excited that the school programmes are kicking off now with planned visits to both local and international schools."
