NBK sup­ports Ji­dariyyat ini­tia­tive in ren­o­vat­ing the Na­tional Coun­cil for Cul­ture and Arts’ wall

As part of its phi­lan­thropic role and so­cial out­reach

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Na­tional Bank of Kuwait (NBK) sup­ported the new Ji­dariyyat Vol­un­teer Group ini­tia­tive in trans­form­ing the wall at the Na­tional Coun­cil for Cul­ture and Arts to a colorful paint­ing fea­tur­ing the let­ters of the Ara­bic lan­guage and more specif­i­cally the Ara­bic letter ‘Dhaad.’

This ini­tia­tive comes as a part of a wider phi­lan­thropic scheme that in­cludes in­volve­ment of NBK in a se­ries of cultural ac­tiv­i­ties meant to en­cour­age our com­mu­nity to fol­low suit the in­flu­en­tial mes­sage of art and sup­port young Kuwaiti tal­ents.

NBK vol­un­teers par­tic­i­pated in this ini­tia­tive which was held in co­op­er­a­tion with the Kuwaiti artist Fa­reed Al Ali who de­signed the piece which aims to glo­rify the Ara­bic lan­guage and its beauty with the unique letter ‘Dhaad.’

Com­ment­ing on the oc­ca­sion, NBK’s Pub­lic Re­la­tions Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager, Ab­dul Mohsen Al-Rushaid said that NBK’s com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity, which by far ex­ceeds the role normally ex­pected from a bank­ing in­sti­tu­tion and em­braces a broad spec­trum of so­cial and phi­lan­thropic in­volve­ment.

“NBK has a long tra­di­tion in the adop­tion and sup­port of so­cial and cultural ini­tia­tives. Our vi­sion has met with Ji­dariyyat, and here came this co­op­er­a­tion which we look through it to see a beau­ti­ful and colorful Kuwait signed by tal­ented and am­bi­tious young Kuwaitis,” he added.

It is worth men­tion­ing that NBK has un­der­taken sev­eral ma­jor ini­tia­tives to demon­strate its full sup­port for so­ci­ety, in­clud­ing the cre­ation of the NBK Chil­dren Hos­pi­tal at Al-Sabah Med­i­cal Area to pro­vide med­i­cal at­ten­tion for chil­dren suf­fer­ing from chronic and in­cur­able ail­ments, in ad­di­tion to the an­nual bud­gets al­lo­cated for sup­port­ing the var­i­ous char­i­ta­ble and phi­lan­thropic pro­jects.
