Milestone offers Turkish real estate deals

Milestone Properties will be offering real estate investment opportunities in Turkey starting from $25,000 for visitors to the Gulf Property Show.

The Gulf Property Show at The Avenues — Bahrain takes place from Nov. 21 to 24. The mall event is a dedicated boutique showcase promoting specific developments and real estate from Bahrain, the UAE, Turkey and the UK. 

Milestone Properties will be promoting The Sazlibosna Project located on the European side of Istanbul with direct views of the Istanbul Canal and Sazlibosna Lake. The Sazlibosna residents can take advantage of the surrounding entertainment facilities such as shopping malls, medical centers, a gym, a traditional Turkish bath, a sauna, kids’ playing areas and many other facilities. 

“The Sazlibosna Project is just 15 minutes from Istanbul’s airport and 30 minutes away from the center of the old city. Surrounding the area of the peninsula-shaped project are new developments, malls and entertainment facilities with easy access to all the major highways that link Istanbul to other cities in Turkey. The location provides an excellent base for international investors looking to buy a holiday home which gives them access to explore all that Turkey has to offer,” said Milestone Properties Managing Director Rashed Al-Jowder. 

Jubran Abdulrahman, managing director of Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions, organizers of the event, said: “The fall in value of the Turkish lira offers an extra benefit for investors in the GCC who are eager to buy property in Turkey.” 

He added: “The Gulf Property Show has established itself as Bahrain’s leading real estate show. The mall event at The Avenues Bahrain will build on the Gulf Property Show brand to develop a platform to promote a variety of real estate investment opportunities.”

The Gulf Property Show carries the strategic sponsorship of El Mercado Village and the strategic organizational support of the Real Estate Regulatory Authority of Bahrain (RERA), Survey and Land Regulatory Bureau (SLRB) and the Urban Planning and Development Authority of Bahrain.

Shell KSA supports special needs children

Shell Saudi Arabia has announced the continuation of its sponsorship for the Disabled Children’s Association (DCA) art program for two years (2018-2019). The announcement, made at an event organized by the DCA on Nov. 12, is part of Shell Saudi Arabia’s ongoing support for children with special needs.

Since its establishment in 1981, the Disabled Children’s Association has become one of the largest institutions specialized in the care of children with special needs in the Arab world.

The program held last month promoted the skills and artworks of such children.

To mark the collaboration between the two organizations, Abdulrahman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Suwailim, vice chairman of the Disabled Children’s Association’s executive committee, presented a commemorative shield to Mohammed Al-Zomaia, Shell Saudi Arabia’s general manager for corporate development.

“At Shell, we believe in creating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Today’s talent is more diverse than ever before. An inclusive environment is key to innovating, developing and retaining talent, and it begins with the youngest members of our communities,” said Al-Zomaia.

Shell has been active in the Kingdom for over seven decades and has a wide variety of social investment activities in the country, many of which are centered around youth empowerment, such as Shell Intilaaqah and FutbolNet.

Shell Intilaaqah aims to strengthen young people’s career options by enabling them to switch from being an employee to becoming an employer, or making the transition from seeking employment to creating employment. Shell’s trainees have set up 1,100 businesses, in addition to 500 existing small and medium businesses. Together, they created over 3,000 jobs. Shell Intilaaqah has been training Saudi entrepreneurs since 2010. Over the past years, Shell Intilaaqah trained, supported and mentored 10,000 Saudis — the majority of whom were women. 

Shell and Football Club (FC) Barcelona Foundation work together and use football to teach children the importance of values. The FutbolNet program is a 12-week football training course for children supported by dedicated coaches. Futbolnet aims to infuse values like respect, teamwork and commitment, which are key for the children to develop as happy, healthy and value-adding individuals.
