[PHOTO FEATURE] International Labour Day: That’s #MyCommunity

As we mark International Worker’s Day today, here’s our little attempt of getting to know our community better. We asked you to submit a photo of someone you interact with daily, but don’t know well.
And this is what you gave. We are keeping this section open the whole of May, so please do continue submitting your photos and stories.

Abdulla, a valuable member of the Msheireb Family. He is a ray of sunshine, he’s one of those people that brings joy with him wherever he goes.

Our security guard at Beach Tower. His name is Hillary. He’s from Cameroon. What he loves the most in his job is that it makes everyone in the building safer and happier. He has a good heart, he loves kids, he loves the people of the tower and we love him too. He is resourceful and fixes all our issues, even if it’s not part of his job role.

He is an extremely friendly and informative guy, and very helpful in terms of mental and physical fitness. He dreams of becoming a professional model. He likes boxing and basketball.

That’s Joy from Qatar Tennis Federation. She’s a bit camera shy, so requested for a candid shot! Joy does court bookings and manages the schedule of trainings. She’s usually on night duty. She’s very generous. Even if I call in at the last minute to book a court, she tries her best to make one available for me. She likes to watch people play tennis, though she doesn’t play the game herself.

That’s a picture of me with Abdulla (in green). Abdullah is a porter at the Kilo Market on Salwa Road. At 70 years, he’s probably the oldest employee there! Despite his age, he works hard at his job. It’s tiring, he says. But he needs to work to support his wife back home in Iran. He has no complaints in life, and you can see the contentment is his eyes.
