KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) continues its “I Dream to Be” initiative, a first-of-a-kind initiative that aims at granting wishes for children with severe illnesses around Kuwait, giving them the chance to live their dreams.
Victor Abraham, who is undergoing treatment at NBK Hospital, has always dreamed of being a boxer. NBK and the Burrow Gym helped him make his dream come true.
NBK’s family organized a visit for Victor and his father to The Burrow Gym, where he was given special lessons and practices. The Burrow’s staff alongside with Victor’s family and the NBK team were given a tour of the area and learnt all the boxing techniques and trainings through participating in various activities, competitions and many other training techniques.
The Burrow’s team greeted Victor with a boxing show, giving him precious memorabilia that will help with his future as a boxer.
“Victor’s dream to become a boxer is yet another wish granted through NBK’s initiative “I Dream To Be”. We are proud to be a part of the children’s wishes and expand our support to them as much as possible to fulfill their dreams.” said Joanne Al Abdul Jaleel, NBK Public Relations Officer.
