Mu­nira Ab­dulnabi Macki GM - HR and Cor­po­rate Sup­port, Bank So­har, said, “As a fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion that al­ways gives back to the com­mu­nity, we have been at the fore­front of ini­tia­tives that pro­mote so­cial devel­op­ment and pro­vide as­sis­tance to the needy. Or­phans are an im­por­tant part of our so­ci­ety and can be highly pro­duc­tive mem­bers of the econ­omy with the right kind of as­sis­tance. It is there­fore nec­es­sary for them to have sta­ble sup­port sys­tem that will im­prove their in­come and give them sus­tain­abil­ity for the fu­ture.

“We have been sup­port­ing Omani Bah­jah or­phan so­ci­ety in Salalah for the last four years and we com­mend them for the in­valu­able and un­tir­ing ef­forts in re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing the or­phaned mem­bers of so­ci­ety. Their en­deav­ours have had a great im­pact on the lives of th­ese in­di­vid­u­als for they have given them hope.”

Thank­ing So­har Is­lamic for its mag­nan­i­mous con­tri­bu­tion, Shaikh Dr Yaafi said, “We are im­mensely grate­ful to So­har Is­lamic for their gen­eros­ity that will make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of our mem­bers. It sets a good ex­am­ple for how im­por­tant it is that the pri­vate sec­tor be proac­tively en­gaged in so­cial causes. Our goal is to cre­ate a sta­ble en­vi­ron­ment for or­phans and ex­pand our net­work to cater to a larger num­ber of or­phan chil­dren.”

Es­tab­lished in Fe­bru­ary 2014, the Omani Bah­jah Or­phan So­ci­ety pro­vides or­phans with food sup­plies, psy­cho­log­i­cal and emo- tional care, apart from so­cial, ed­u­ca­tion and health care. The cen­tre also builds and re­con­structs homes for or­phans, co­or­di­nates with gov­ern­ment bod­ies to pro­vide as­sis­tance to or­phaned chil­dren as well as cre­ates aware­ness among lo­cal so­ci­eties. This do­na­tion marks the fourth con­sec­u­tive year So­har Is­lamic has sup­ported the Omani Bah­jah Or­phan So­ci­ety.

In recog­ni­tion of its con­tri­bu­tions, Bank So­har has re­ceived nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades for its CSR ef­forts lo­cally, re­gion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. The most re­cent of th­ese awards was the ‘Golden Or­der of Merit in the field of CSR’.
