For the fifth year in a row, Qatar First Bank (QFB), Qatar’s first independent Shari’ah compliant bank regulated by the QFC Regulatory Authority, will launch the annual Ramadan Blessings Campaign. The campaign will include several community-based activities aimed at promoting solidarity and brotherhood during the holy month.
QFB will encourage its employees to actively participate in the campaign’s various activities which include corporate Iftars for partners and employees, a visit to the children of the Qatar Autism and Special Needs Centre, an Iftar for the Elderly and a Garangaouh celebration for the children of Qatar Orphan Foundation (Dhreima) . This year, for the first time, QFB will place a donation box on its premises to encourage its employees and other tenants at the QFB building to contribute in kind donations which will be given to Qatar based charities for distribution to families who are in need.
Emad Mansour, Chief Executive Officer of QFB, commented, “This is the fifth consecutive year for our Ramadan Blessings Campaign. We firmly believe in the importance of giving back to the community which we are a part of. As a Shari’ah-compliant institution, QFB is committed to engaging the local community and contributing to its welfare, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, where it is the custom to reach out to the less fortunate.”
