Apr 18,2023 - Last updated at Apr 18,2023

Falling in line with its aspiration to promote Aqaba’s prosperity and growth, and make a positive impact on the community, Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) recently renewed its partnership with Tikyet Um Ali to increase the number of beneficiaries.

Tkiyet Um Ali is a non-profit organisation providing food support to vulnerable communities in the Kingdom.

The agreement was signed between ACT CEO Soren Jensen and the Director General of Tikyet Um Ali Samer Balkar.

Commenting on this occasion, Jensen said: “ACT is proud to announce its continued partnership with Tkiyet Um Ali. The additional funds allowed the organisation to assist 2,124 beneficiaries instead of the 1,152 reached last year and provided them with the critical nutrition and food assistance they require. We are excited to be part of this vital mission and look forward to making a positive impact on the community. 

Soren added that caring for the well-being of the citizens in Aqaba and its surrounding communities is fundamental to the way the company aspires to do business; thus, it is committed to achieving a balanced society where opportunities are available to all.

Balkar said: “We would like to thank Aqaba Container Terminal for their long-term support of our efforts in eradicating hunger in Jordan. We commend their efforts in helping us achieve our vision to reach a hunger-free Jordan.”

ACT conducted its annual Ahl Al Khair initiative, through which it distributed vouchers to disadvantaged households, which could be exchanged for necessities and groceries from selected stores in Aqaba. 

The company has also cooperated with the Directorate of Social Development in Aqaba to support those in need in the coastal city and nearby villages. 

Moreover, ACT established collaboration with the Helping Hands Organisation for Relief and Development to supply 150 food parcels to their recipients in local areas.
