    I think if you make much effort, then some more ex-ARAMCONS can join your association.

    My friend brother Anwar Kamal lives in Buffer Zone. I have lost his address, so I have no information about his welfare. Now he works in National Bank of Pakistan. This information I got from Face Book. He was in Safaniya and worked in Training/Education.

  2. Mohammed Yousuf says:

    I congratulate all office bearers of SAEEA for such a nice function was held & a lot of ex-employees attended. Please keep the good work on progress and we will support you. Thanks
