KIB sponsors First Annual Conference for Health, Nutrition and Special Needs
KUWAIT: Under the umbrella of its leading social responsibility program and its ongoing efforts to support the special needs community, Kuwait International Bank (KIB) sponsored the First Annual Exhibition for Health, Nutrition and Special Needs, which was held under the title “Your life is in your health, your health is in your diet”.
Held under the patronage of the Minister of Health, Dr Jamal Al-Harbi, the event aimed to raise awareness about the importance of diet and nutrition for people with special needs, in order to ensure their healthy development. The exhibition also sought to shed light on the critical role nutrition plays in combating obesity, particularly amongst the younger generations. Over the course of two days, the event featured a number of lectures on nutrition and healthy diets, in addition to several sporting activities, free medical tests, and live healthy cooking demonstrations.
Speaking about KIB’s participation in the exhibition, Nawaf Najia, Manager of the Corporate Communications Unit at the bank, said: “At KIB, we have always been committed to supporting the special needs community in Kuwait in every way possible. Under the umbrella of our social responsibility program, we are heavily focused on sponsoring and participating in initiatives that seek to raise awareness and educate the public about special needs. Our aim is to help shed light on the talents, achievements and ambitions of people with disabilities, underscoring the major role they are able to play in national development.”
KIB’s sponsorship of this exhibition comes as part of the bank’s ongoing program of initiatives dedicated to supporting the special needs community. It is also in line with the bank’s commitment to promoting tolerance, acceptance and positive interactions when it comes to people with disabilities.
