Dubai, UAE: The Kanoo Group, a leading family-run organization, conducted a Covid 19 Vaccination Drive as one of its measures in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all its employees and their families. The vaccination campaign was held in 2 Phases at the World Trade Centre on 9th & 16th March 2021 which was organized by Ms. Amna Al Mheiri, in coordination with the Ministry of Health-UAE.

Right from the time Covid 19 infection hit the country, The Kanoo Group has always been at the forefront of introducing a lot of safety measures for all employees and  has put a lot of emphasis to ensure their health and wellbeing. The Human Resources team, led by Ms. Maha Kanoo is in-charge of providing a safe working environment for all.

As Vaccinations are currently being carried out only for targeted special category people (such as aged 40 & above and people with chronic diseases), the vaccination drive was even more important as it allowed all The Kanoo Group staff and their family members to avail themselves of the opportunity. Close to 500 staff and their families took part in the vaccination. Aside from its employees, the offer was extended to The Kanoo Group’s Joint Ventures where around 70 staff of Johnson Arabia also benefited from the initiative. Mr. John Miranda, HR Manager of Johnson Arabia expressed his sincere thanks to the Kanoo Team for facilitating this event for their staff also.
