CSR in A Pandemic

In spite of this, the management of OMS believes in doing the right thing when presented with a clear need to continue to pay it forward in simple and meaningful ways, where the company is able to do so.
In the past years and months, OMS had been involved in various community outreach programs that have given much needed support to needy children and used different ways to engage them in their educational journey, even with the challenges of the pandemic.
