KUWAIT CITY, June 1: On the occasion of the Holy month of Ramadan and in line with its activities planned for this year, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) made a donation to the Kuwait Blind Association, in its efforts to provide the visually impaired with the Holy Quran in Braille.
The Bank’s main CSR focus since 2016 has been special needs which stems from its strong belief in the importance of creating equal opportunities for individuals with special needs and raising awareness among Kuwait’s society.
The donation was presented by Mr. Fawzy Al Thunayan; ABK’s General Manager of Board Affairs, to Fahad Al Eenzi, Board Member and Head of the Cultural Committee at the Kuwait Blind Association.
Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Fawzy Al Thunayan said: “Ensuring that every Muslim individual has access to the Holy Quran, despite any physical disabilities, is our duty as a socially responsible entity. There are so many different forms of giving that can be adopted by individuals and companies alike, simple acts of giving during this time of year is even more special as we aim to offer a sense of serenity and peace across every home in Kuwait”.
Fahad Al Eenzi expressed his appreciation to ABK for its support on behalf of the Kuwait Blind Association and every visually impaired individual that will be able to benefit from this contribution.
This is one of a series of initiatives embraced by the Bank this year. The Bank also recently distributed relief packages in collaboration with the Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS), whereby relief packages containing non-perishable food items were distributed to underprivileged families.
