With a deep commitment towards helping improve the quality of life of those in need within our community, Bank Sohar has once again partnered with Dar Al Atta’a. As part of its contribution, Bank Sohar will be providing some key household items and electronic appliances for houses that are currently under construction by the charitable association for the underprivileged.
The support, in the form of a cheque donation was handed over by Ms. Munira Abdulnabi Macki, DGM Human Resources & Corporate Support at Bank Sohar at the Organisation’s premises to Ms. Maryam Al Zadjali, Chairperson of Dar Al Atta’a Organisation.
Commenting on the Bank’s contribution, Ms. Munira Abdulnabi Macki said, “As a local Bank, community development and wellbeing has always been a major pillar of our corporate social responsibility strategy. Lack of adequate housing continues to be a challenge for the underprivileged of our community and it’s the responsibility of every organizations and community to ensure contributions are made towards improving the livelihood of underprivileged members in the community.”
“It’s inspiring to witness the commitment of organisations such as Dar Al Atta’a and the results they’ve been able to achieve. We are pleased to be a part of this initiative – by participating in this project we are not only providing a basic need that every Omani family deserves, we are also building a solid foundation on which the community can secure a better future for themselves,” added Ms. Munira Macki.
Since its inception Bank Sohar has been associated with Dar al Atta’a initiatives by lending a hand with a number of projects including education for children and women’s empowerment, across the Sultanate. In this, it’s most recent contribution; Bank Sohar has provided funds for the purchase of key household items and Electronic appliances for homes that are currently under construction for the underprivileged. These homes are scheduled to be completed during the current year, following which they will be handed over to their new respective occupants.
Thanking Bank Sohar for its support, Ms. Maryam Al Zadjali, Chairperson of Dar al Atta’a said, “Housing, job creation and skills development are some of the top priorities that require attention within the Sultanate. Public and private partnerships play a critical role in bringing solutions to these challenges. We applaud Bank Sohar for partnering with us and thank them for their continued support in helping to build a better community. It is through our collective power and provision of housing, we are able to build a foundation for a truly self-sufficient and sustaining community and provide these families with hope and opportunity for a brighter future.”
