Our contributions usually focus on areas such as the environment, education, sports, health, and sustainable community activities.

In Egypt, we sponsor environmental awareness programs and social seminars related to them, as well as contribute to improving educational levels by providing a scholarship at the College of Chemical Engineering at the American University of Sharjah. In the Kurdistan region of Iraq, we provide office supplies and school bags to three primary schools located within our operational area.

We also sponsor sports events in Sharjah and support health centers in various areas, in addition to supporting non-governmental organizations to develop sustainable business practices in some villages in Egypt. While the individual programs implemented by Dana Gas in this field may vary, its commitment to social responsibility brings about real change in various areas where it operates.
