NBK supports Jidariyyat initiative in renovating the National Council for Culture and Arts’ wall
As part of its philanthropic role and social outreach
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.
