KIB sup­ports Ah­madi School Pro­gram for Oral Health

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Bank (KIB) re­cently spon­sored the Ah­madi School Pro­gram for Oral Health, an ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram or­ga­nized by the den­tal unit at the School Health Depart­ment at the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion. As part of its part­ner­ship with the pro­gram, KIB or­ga­nized sev­eral field vis­its to a num­ber of schools, help­ing to ed­u­cate chil­dren about the im­por­tance of oral health and hy­giene. The spon­sor­ship came in line with KIB’s on­go­ing ef­forts to sup­port healthcare aware­ness ini­tia­tives which tar­get all seg­ments of the pop­u­la­tion, es­pe­cially youth and chil­dren.

“KIB is keen on pro­mot­ing the prin­ci­ples of health and well­ness amongst chil­dren, en­hanc­ing their knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of im­por­tant health is­sues through a com­pre­hen­sive pro­gram of ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties and aware­ness ini­tia­tives,” said Nawaf Na­jia, Man­ager of the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit at KIB. “This pro­gram in par­tic­u­lar plays an im­por­tant role in en­hanc­ing healthcare aware­ness amongst chil­dren start­ing from a very early age, as it aims to ed­u­cate stu­dents about the im­por­tance of oral health as a spe­cific area, as well as the im­por­tance of their over­all health and hy­giene in a more gen­eral sense.”

Na­jia also lauded the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s School Health Depart­ment for its ef­forts in or­ga­niz­ing this pro­gram, which tar­gets gov­ern­ment schools that house per­ma­nent den­tal clin­ics. He fur­ther noted that KIB has been an ar­dent sup­porter of the Ah­madi School Pro­gram for Oral Health over the years, stem­ming from the Bank’s be­lief in the im­por­tance of the pro­gram’s goals and ob­jec­tives.

KIB’s lead­ing so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram con­tin­u­ously strives to sup­port healthcare aware­ness ini­tia­tives which specif­i­cally tar­get youth and chil­dren. The Bank has al­ways been a firm be­liever in the im­por­tance of pro­mot­ing health and well­ness amongst the younger seg­ments of the pop­u­la­tion, in or­der to fos­ter health­ier fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.
