United Arab Bank extends support to Al Thiqah Club for Handicapped

March 29, 2014 12:29 pm

United Arab Bank (UAB), one of the fastest growing banks in the Middle East, continues to grow at an unparalleled rate in the UAE and giving back to the local community remains a top priority.

As part of its corporate social responsibility, UAB has established a strong partnership with Al Thiqah Club for the Handicapped, an organisation that provides invaluable support for people with special needs in the UAE.

Recently UAB provided a contribution of Dhs250,000 to the club to support its activities related to the welfare and development of the handicapped. This was followed by a visit to UAB’s corporate headquarters by a delegation from Al Thiqah Club for the Handicapped to show their appreciation for the bank’s support. The delegation included HE Tariq Sultan Bin Khadim, Chairman of Al Thiqah Club for the Handicapped, Humaid Al Abar, Vice-Chairman of the club and Haider Talib Erabeh, GM of Al Thiqah Projects.

Over the years, the Bank has developed a long-standing relationship with the Al Thiqah Club for the Handicapped and has been supporting and recruiting citizens with special needs for many years and providing cash contributions since 2003. UAB is also the exclusive sponsor of all the Program Training sessions, with the sole objective of inducting special-needs citizens into the local community. UAB furthermore supports the club by employing some of their special needs students with the bank.

Speaking on the occasion, Paul Trowbridge, CEO of United Arab Bank, said: “UAB is firmly committed to giving back to the community as social responsibility has always been an integral part of UAB’s corporate policy. Whilst the bank performs exceptionally well year after year, we wish to give something back to the community that we operate in and support its citizens. By helping those who have special needs, it gives us great satisfaction to be able to play a role in their integration into the workforce as well as help provide the necessary training to make this possible.”
