Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) P.Q.S.C., Qatar’s next generation bank, has extended its support to IHSAN Center, one of Qatar Foundation for Social Work (QFSW) affiliated Centers with a deep-rooted history in charitable and voluntary work that focuses on the provision of initiatives and programs that seek to empower the elderly and promote solidarity between generations, as well as the promotion of opportunities for interaction between them.

al khaliji’s partnership with IHSAN Center falls under the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, guided by a main objective of helping the vulnerable and serving the common humanitarian causes. Mr. Omar Al Emadi, Head of Corporate Banking and Mr. Nawaf Talfat, Senior Regional Manager, visited the administrative headquarters of IHSAN and provided financial support to the Foundation.

For his part, Mr. Mubarak bin Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, Executive Director of IHSAN, praised the efforts of al khaliji to support projects and programs for the elderly and praised their generous initiative and the great role they play in programs that will lead to a dignified life for the elderly, and raise community awareness regarding communication skills needed to interact with them. Al Khalifa also lauded the Bank's keenness on exerting outstanding efforts at all levels through their interest in CSR initiatives and supporting the activities of social institutions.

“We thank al khaliji for its efforts in their continuous pursuit of meeting the needs of the community and finding optimal solutions (for their problems). We hope that this will not be the first and last phase of cooperation between us and we look forward to a future partnership that is beneficial to all segments of society and the elderly in particular.”

On his part, Mr. Omar Al Emadi, Head of Corporate Banking at al khaliji, said: “This charitable initiative is a humble attempt to give back to our loved ones - our elderly people - and the Bank will continue to support humanitarian and social activities that benefit the Qatari society. We also praise the noble humanitarian role played by IHSAN in helping and contributing to alleviating the suffering of the elderly and protecting their rights.”

Al khaliji has an ongoing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Supporting human development within the community is a cornerstone within al khaliji values, as it aims to achieve the Human Development pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. Many nonprofit organizations have benefited from al khaliji's CSR activities. The bank has extended its support to a wide range of charitable activities in and outside of the country.
