Life has taken a positive turn for three expats from three countries – thanks to Oman’s green initiative, the O! Millionaire draw.
Aboubakr Abdulkader is originally from Thrissur, in the Indian state of Kerala. Joy knew no bounds when he received the news that he was a winner of OMR 10,000 at the special draw. The man, who has been eking out a living filling fuel for the last 20 years in Oman, says the win is super special.
“I consider myself very lucky by the grace of God. I purchased the green certificate for the first time and turned into a winner right away. I believe the money will change my life forever,” he explains.
The first person Aboubakr called after winning was his daughter – he plans to use the money for her education. In addition, he wants to support his family members who backed him during his early years of struggle.
Aboubakr, who got to know of the green initiative through YouTube, urges everyone to participate and support a worthy green dream that O! Millionaire aspires to achieve.
He thanks O! Millionaire for conceptualizing the cause that will change the world for the better.
O! Millionaire special draw winner, Tarun Sharma can’t begin to describe how life has changed for him since he won the weekly draw of OMR 10,000.
The Indian expat who now works in UAE says, “I was struggling for a big break for the last three years. I lost my job during COVID-19 but had to pay rent and send money to India too. Though I got a job, I took a personal loan from India to meet ends meet. It was difficult to repay as I was earning less. The win has helped me clear my loans and inspired me to book a new house too.”
Like Aboubakr, Tarun heard of O! Millionaire through social media. He registered and participated in the draw and immediately won.
He says, “When they called to say I won, I double checked to confirm, then called my family who thought I was joking. When I said it was real, my mom started crying. The entire family was overjoyed. O! Millionaire truly changes people’s lives.”
Tarun is proud to be part O! Millionaire’s green initiative which he believes will help the world become greener and more sustainable.
“It is a fantastic initiative, and now my friends are buying the green certificate on my recommendation,” Tarun says.
Mohammed Azam from Qatar is thankful to O! Millionaire family for giving him such an ‘awesome’ gift.
Hailing from Hyderabad, in the Indian state of Telangana Mohammed has a wife and three kids who stay with his father and mother back home.
“O! Millionaire has given me an opportunity to bring them to Qatar and spend some quality time with them which otherwise, I couldn’t. The money which when converted turns around Rs 20 lakhs is huge money. It will help me build my dream home and help with my children’s education. I plan to use it in a wise way,” he says.
Mohammed heard about O! Millionaire through his friend.
“Knowing of my financial constraints, he said why don’t you try this initiative? He was the first person I called when I won.” he says.
He appreciates this great initiative as part of which they plan to build an Oasis Park in Oman. He wants to by green certificates, contribute to a good cause and hopes to win the Grand Prize one day.
O! Millionaire’s goals inspire individuals to make a positive difference in their own lives and their communities.
A green certificate, which participants purchase to support O! Millionaire’s tree-planting programme that forms the basis of Oasis Park, entitles them to an entry for a draw valued at over OMR 6,000,000. The certificate provides participants two chances to win – one through a raffle that pays out one winner OMR 10,000 every week and another through a draw that can bring them prizes valued at more than OMR 6,000,000. The draw is held every Thursday at 8 pm and should no grand prize winner be selected in a draw; a sum of OMR 50,000 will be added to the prize sum every week.
O! Millionaire environmental initiative intends to create Middle East’s most significant green park – the Oasis Park in Oman which will be spread across an area of 1,200 square kilometers and will host 60 million trees. Once Oasis Park is fully developed, it is expected to contribute to CO2 reduction by 1,440,000 tons approximately and will also witness a reduction of the total annual CO2 emission of Oman and will eventually help build the world’s atmosphere.
In line with the key objectives of Oman Vision 2040, this initiative seeks to protect the environment and conserve Oman’s rich biodiversity. It also aims to contribute towards the country’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint in alignment with the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Oasis Park is a bold endeavor to promote conservation, develop sustainability for the country, and support continued research and education. The goal is to take positive steps toward climate change mitigation, carbon sequestration, food security, water security, biodiversity conservation amongst others.
