Speaking on the launch, Mariam Ahli, Head of Corporate Communications, Al Hilal Bank said: “Organizing this campaign is part of our social responsibility and efforts to support all groups of society, especially those who are in need of special care such as people with special needs, orphans, elderly, and workers. The first visit of Al Hilal’s fleet was to people with special needs as taking care of them is not easy and those working with them make a huge effort and are always patient, loyal and devoted. We came here to share Suhour and spend some quality time to show how much we appreciate what they do.”

“The campaign aims to strengthen the spirit of cooperation and love and embodies the values of giving and generosity within the community. At the same time, it reflects the Bank’s belief in Ramadan being the month of giving and an opportunity to get closer to God through good deeds. Al Hilal Bank, being part of this community, it is our role to give back and spread tolerance, it’s all about the community at al Hilal Bank” She added.

I hope that this initiative takes place every year which has received special attention from the country’s leaders. I would like to call on other social organizations to follow the example of Al Hilal Bank.”
