  • Doha Festival City and Hamad Medical Corporation unite for World No Tobacco Day Awareness Campaign

    Organized as part of Doha Festival City's #FestivalCares CSR program, the campaign aims to encourage quitting smoking and raise awareness on the negative impacts of tobacco cultivation. Doha, Qatar – 1 June, 2023 – Doha Festival City, Qatar’s ultimate destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment, having revamped its brand positioning “It’s my Place, my Choice”, has joined forces with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) to launch a 4 days awareness campaign on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day. Observed annually on May 31st, World No Tobacco Day serves as a global initiative led by the World Health Organization (WHO) to raise awareness about the health risks associated with tobacco use. Held from May 31st to June 3rd, The campaign aims to educate the community about the harmful effects of tobacco and promote a smoke-free lifestyle, through an awareness booth open from 2 PM to 10 PM at the Atrium Node for visitors to learn more about the impacts of tobacco use and its cultivation. The booth labeled “We need Food, not Tobacco” will be staffed by knowledgeable representatives who will help answer visitors’ question about smoking and provide support to those willing to quit, while also raising awareness about the detrimental impact of tobacco growing on food insecurity and malnutrition. Tobacco cultivation occupies significant amounts of arable land, diverting resources from the cultivation of essential and nourishing crops. This exacerbates issues of food security and malnutrition, particularly in low and middle-income nations. Commenting on the World No Tobacco Day awareness campaign, Robert Hall, General Manager of Doha Festival City, said: " At Doha Festival City, we take our commitment to promoting health and well-being seriously. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Hamad Medical Corporation for their continued collaboration and support. Together, we aim to raise awareness about the harmful impact of tobacco and empower individuals to make informed choices for a smoke-free and more sustainable future." Dr. Ahmad Al Mulla, Director of HMC’s Tobacco Control Center thanked Doha Festival City for its efforts in supporting the reduction of tobacco use in the community. “Quitting smoking improves blood circulation and glucose levels which regulates insulin, especially in diabetic patients, and reduces bad cholesterol as well as prevents many ailments and conditions. Tobacco contains around 70 harmful chemicals that cause cancer and this is why we advise smokers to seriously consider giving this habit up and we appreciate major organizations supporting our efforts,” he said. Doha Festival City and HMC have a proven history of successful collaborations, focusing on promoting important health issues to our visitors. The ongoing partnership has recently achieved great success with the joint flu vaccination campaign, effectively raising awareness and encouraging vaccination among visitors. Additionally, in March, Doha Festival City hosted an interactive booth in celebration of World Kidney Day 2023, where it engaged a substantial number of visitors through educational activities and informative displays. Furthermore, the mall conducted a mental health awareness campaign in April, emphasizing the significance of mental well-being. These initiatives highlight Doha Festival City’s commitment to prioritizing health and well-being within its community.

Qatar Labor Law Kadalasan, ito ang tanong ng ating mga kababayan lalo pa't katatapos lamang ang Eid holiday, kung saan ang nasabing tatlong araw ay dapat walang pasok sa mga pampubliko o pribadong tanggapan, Ang tanong, magkano daw ba dapat ang bayad o sweldo kapag ikaw ay pinagtrabaho pa rin sa araw ng iyong pahinga (Friday) o kaya ay mga non-working holidays? Ayon sa Article 75 ng Law No. 14 of 2004 o mas kilala sa tawag na Qatar Labor Law (as amended), ang mga manggagawa ay may karapatan para sa isang kompletong (24 consecutive hours) araw na pahinga, kadalasan ay Biyernes, maliban sa ibang mga manggagawa na may tinatawag na 'shift timings'. Pero, pinapayagan din ng nasabing artikulo na kung kinakailangan, maaaring pagtrabahuhin ng employer ang manggagawa kahit sa araw ng pahinga subalit kinakailangang tumbasan ng ibang araw ang araw na pahinga, at ang magiging bayad ng manggagawa sa nasabing araw ng pahinga ay may dagdag na hindi dapat bababa sa 150%. Halimbawa, kung ang sweldo ng manggagawa ay QR100 per day, kapag pinagtrabaho sya sa araw ng pahinga (o non-working day), ang magiging bayad o sweldo sa kanya sa araw na 'yun ay QR 100 + 150 = QR250 dapat. Samakatuwid, maliban sa dagdag na sweldo na hindi bababa sa 150%, bibigyan pa rin ng katumbas na bilang ng araw ang manggagawa para magpahinga. Sinasabi pa sa artikulo na bagamat maaari o pinapayagan ang mga employer na pagtrabahuhin sa araw ng pahinga ang mga manggagawa, hindi ito dapat maging magkakasunod. Samantala, meron namang mga kategorya ng manggagawa na hindi saklaw ng nasabing artikulo. Alinsunod kasi sa Article 76 ng Qatar Labor Law, ang mga provisions ng Articles 73, 74, at 75 ay hindi sumasaklaw sa mga manggagawang nasa kategorya na trabaho tulad ng security guards at mga cleaners.

Samo't sari ang mga reaksiyon na ating narinig o nabasa mula sa ating mga kababayan, katulad ng, paano raw kung mataas na ang sweldo nila, e di mas ibababa pa? Ito po ay isang mali na pang-unawa, hindi po ganun 'yon. Ang layunin ng nasabing batas ay magtakda ng kontrol sa pinakamababa na sahod na dapat tanggapin ng mga manggagawa at hindi upang ibaba pa ang sahod na dati ng mataas. Halimbawa, kung ang dati mong sahod ay nasa QR800 lamang, ito po ay magiging isang paglabag sa batas kung ang itinatakda ng batas ay dapat hindi na bababa sa QR1,800 ang sahod (QR 1,000 - basic wage + QR500 (accommodation) + QR300 (food). O kaya, kung ang manggagawa ay pasasahurin ng mas mababa sa QR 1,800 kada buwan (inclusive of accommodation and food allowance), ito po ay magiging isang paglabag din sa batas. Maaari bang gamitin ng employer ang batas na ito upang ibaba ang sweldo ng manggagawa sa pinakamababang itinakda ng Law No. 17 of 2020? Of course not, Alalahanin po natin na ang taas o baba ng sweldo na ino-offer sa isang aplikante sa trabaho ay nakabase rin sa propesyon, experience, at kakayahan ng isang manggagawa. Para sa inyong mga tanong o komento, maaari nyo pong isulat sa post na ito, o kaya ay mag post mismo sa Qabayan Forum. Like 0 comments 0 Forum - Frameless 1/13
