Agility Supports 1,000 Families during Ramadan

Agility’s UPAC, Shipa Delivery join Kuwait Union of Consumer Cooperative Societies and Al-Sha’ab Cooperative Society in
Maachla effort

KUWAIT — March 17, 2024 Agility, a supply chain services, infrastructure and innovation company, delivered food baskets this week for 1,000 needy families in Kuwait, part of Maachlat Al Khair,” its annual Ramadan initiative.

Maachlat Al Khair (Food for Good) was done in partnership with Kuwait’s cooperative sector, represented by the Union of Consumer Cooperative Societies and Al-Sha’ab Cooperative Society.

Representatives from Agility, UPAC, Shipa Delivery and Union of Consumer Cooperative Societies working together to help pack and distribute the food packages in the Ramadan Maachla effort.

To identify the families, Agility worked with the Naemati, a Kuwaiti initiative that aims to minimize and stop food wastage and provide necessities to those in need through volunteerism. Agility affiliates United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC) and Shipa Delivery provided additional financial support and donated vehicles for delivering packages. Agility employees, including Chairperson Henadi Al-Saleh, helped pack and distribute the food packages. These packages, containing rice, cooking oil, flour, salt, sugar, and dates, are designed to meet the food requirements of a family throughout the month of Ramadan.

Al-Saleh said: “Supporting families in Kuwait who need it the most, especially during Ramadan, is a project close to my heart. Giving back to the communities where we work is a key part of our company values, and initiatives like Maachlat Al Khair are one of the ways we can give back. Thank you to the partner organizations that helped us reach 1,000 families.”

Nadia Akil, Chief Executive Officer of UPAC, said: “UPAC strives to have a positive impact on lives of others. We are strongly committed to giving back to Kuwait because we believe in the importance of social responsibility and understand the role our company has in supporting its local communities.”

Agility has a long tradition of support for sustainability initiatives, social causes and assistance to those in need. Agility and UPAC have run Ramadan programs since 2017, providing for hundreds of families in need in Kuwait.
