KIB Sil­ver Spon­sor of ‘Di­a­betes Chal­lenge Trip’

In part­ner­ship with Blue Cir­cle

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Blue Cir­cle, the non-profit move­ment founded by a group of lo­cal di­a­betic youth, re­cently hon­ored Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Bank (KIB) for their sil­ver spon­sor­ship to­wards the ‘Di­a­betes Chal­lenge Trip’. The ini­tia­tive, which is focused on rais­ing aware­ness of di­a­betes, sent a group of di­a­betic youth on an in­ter­na­tional trip to take part in a num­ber of sport­ing chal­lenges.

The ini­tia­tive sought to high­light how di­a­betic pa­tients are able to take charge of their con­di­tions and suc­cess­fully man­age their dis­ease, through de­ter­mi­na­tion and strong will. Ir­re­spec­tive of their di­ag­no­sis, these in­di­vid­u­als are able to live a nor­mal and ful­fill­ing life, and are more than ca­pa­ble of ac­tively tak­ing part in de­mand­ing and chal­leng­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

“KIB is al­ways striv­ing to sup­port such sig­nif­i­cant so­cial ini­tia­tives and ac­tiv­i­ties, which aim to raise aware­ness and drive real change in the com­mu­nity. We are also ded­i­cated to of­fer­ing sup­port to lo­cal youth projects and ini­tia­tives, as these young ac­tivists are the ones who will be shap­ing the fu­ture of this coun­try, and it is vi­tal that we of­fer them all the help they need in or­der to be­come ac­tive part­ners in so­cial de­vel­op­ment,” said Nawaf Na­jia, Man­ager of the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit at KIB.

“KIB is es­pe­cially focused on sup­port­ing health­care-focused ini­tia­tives, in its ef­forts to pro­mote a greater sense of health con­scious­ness across the coun­try,” added Na­jia. KIB’s spon­sor­ship of the ‘Di­a­betes Chal­lenge Trip’ comes within the con­text of its holis­tic and ro­bust so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram, and in line with its ef­forts to pro­mote a cul­ture of vol­un­teer­ing, col­lab­o­ra­tive ini­tia­tives and non-profit pro­grams na­tion­wide.
