I would like to extend my best wishes to you and to your families for a peaceful ‘Id al-Adha and some well-deserved time for rest and relaxation.
I recognize that a number of our colleagues are away from their families this ‘Id, but we are united in our appreciation for their sacrifices. While there has been much progress in fighting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot afford to let our guard down just yet. It is crucial that we maintain our momentum and remain vigilant by wearing face masks and maintaining high standards of hygiene while practicing physical distancing.
You are making a difference, not only by helping halt the spread of the virus, but also by reaching out to those most affected by it. Through Aramco’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” care box campaign, you donated nearly SR6.5 million to support the less fortunate, and through the Ramadan Campaign, nearly 10,000 of you went on to donate more than SR5 million. Together, with the company matching your donations, we have provided approximately SR23 million to people in need. I continue to be inspired by your generosity and care for our communities.
‘Id al-Adha is the “Festival of the Sacrifice,” and in a year of unprecedented challenges, we have all certainly gained a better understanding of how placing the needs of others first can be a powerful force for good. Even if we are separated by many miles, let us be together in spirit, recognizing that the essence of ‘Id is within us.
On behalf of Aramco management, I wish you a heartfelt ‘Id Mubarak.
Saudi Aramco president and CEO
