AUB honors volunteering team for success of Ramadan social program
Ahli United Bank’s (AUB) management honored the Bank’s volunteering team for their efforts and outstanding performance, which led to the successful implementation of the Bank’s charitable, cultural, religious and social responsibility activities during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
During a special ceremony, which was attended by the Bank’s management and led by Richard Groves, AUB’s Chief Executive Officer, the Bank highlighted its gratitude for the team’s strong spirit, which was reflected by having a robust and successful social responsibility activity calendar during the Holy Month of Ramadan. AUB, as part of its continued commitment, developed an extensive Ramadan program that included a range of social activities. These included the distribution of thousands of Iftar and Sohoor meals in different areas across Kuwait for those who had been fasting; visiting orphanages and children at hospitals, and presenting a host of gifts and gergean to them. Moreover the Bank held a religious seminar for its employees under the theme of “How do we prepare for Ramadan?”, which was headed by Sheikh Dr. Khaled Al-Mathkoor - Head of Shari’ah and Fatwa Supervisory Board at AUB.
In addition, AUB launched a TV commercial to celebrate the arrival of the Holy month. The TV advertisement’s message was a welcoming one to mark the arrival of the blessed month of Ramadan and it achieved a very large number of viewers. Furthermore, the Bank held its Ramadan Quran Recitation competition in addition to its participation in an awareness drive to support autism patients. As part of spreading religious awareness across mainstream media, AUB, during Ramadan, sponsored Al Rai TV’s ‘Ahadeeth Wa Ebar’ program, which is hosted by Sheikh Dr Abdulaziz Al-Qassar, a member and reporter of the Bank’s sharia and Fatwa Supervisory Board.
On this occasion, AUB pointed out that it is keen to honor its Ramadan volunteering team for their tireless efforts and commitment to serve the community. It is also an occasion to thank them and promote the spirit of giving and for them to become role models for other employees in the coming years and in different initiatives.
In short, AUB reaffirms its commitment towards supporting social responsibility activities as part of its desire to play a vital role in serving society. The Bank’s strategy focuses on developing its CSR platform, especially during the Holy month of Ramadan, in an effort to guarantee and ensure the provision of the best possible activities each year and that these are in line with the values of the Holy month. Values that strengthen the Bank’s social bonds with the local community.
