In their fifth consecutive year of support to the Oman Association for the Disabled, Bank Sohar has once again made a significant contribution towards their successful operation. In its ongoing mission of philanthropy the Bank donated a number of cerebral and sports wheelchairs to help the Association meet its immediate requirements.
The donation was handed over at the Oman Association for the Disabled premises to Mr. Yahya Al Amri, Chairman of the Association, by Ms. Munira Abdulnabi Macki, DGM – Human Resources & Corporate Support at Bank Sohar.
Commenting on this support, Ms. Munira Abdulnabi Macki said, “As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program, we aim to reach out to a wide array of associations that are engaged in the overall development and support of the community. Oman Association for the Disabled continues to positively impact the society and help change the lives of individuals that need such care, and in support of this wonderful endeavor, the Bank has continuously supported the Association for five consecutive years.”
Oman Association for the Disabled was established in Muscat in 1995 to serve disabled individuals and highlight their true potential to the society. The Association ensures that the rights of such individuals are being upheld in a fair manner and encourages their participation in various activities and sporting events. In addition, the Association works towards building and developing their skills and talents; thereby increasing their work potential and enriching their lives.
Thanking Bank Sohar for its support, Mr. Yahya Al Amri said, “We, at the Oman Association for the Disabled work towards a better understanding of the needs of people with disabilities and aim to provide them with the support and education required for them to be contributing members of our society. We are truly grateful to Bank Sohar for their continuous support. Such contributions reflect the Bank’s focus and concern on its social responsibilities in giving back to the community it serves and is very well received by everyone here at the Association.”
Bank Sohar has been actively engaging in various social, educational and environmental initiatives as part of its CSR program. The CSR initiatives of the Bank are primarily focused at helping the youth and disadvantaged members of our community improve their living standards and assist them in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This year alone, and in addition to Oman Association for the Disabled, Bank Sohar has also supported several organizations and their activities including Creative Centre for Rehabilitation, Al Noor Association for the Blind and Association of Early intervention for Children with Disabilities.
