As part of Qatar First Investment Bank’s (QFIB) annual Ramadan Blessings Campaign, the Bank recently hosted a special iftar in celebration of the Garangaou for the children of Qatar Orphan Foundation (Dhreima).
“As an Islamic institution we place great emphasis on the Islamic precepts. Islam has set the tone on the importance of engaging the less fortunate in the community specifically during the holy month where solidarity and brotherhood are greatly promoted. We have a long standing relationship with Dhreima and our employees eagerly await this occasion to share in the joys of the Garangaou celebrations with the children of Dhreima.”, said Emad Mansour, Chief Executive Officer of QFIB.
Following iftar, the children joined QFIB staff and their families in a series of entertainment activities and the children were presented with the traditional Garangaou bag and gifts.
Khalid Kamal, the general director of Qatar Orphan Foundation said, “We would like to thank QFIB for engaging the children of Dhreima and making them part of their social fabric. This has become an annual event that our children look forward to. Over the years, QFIB has demonstrated its on-going commitment to Islamic social values by trying to integrate this important segment of the community.”
Dhreima Qatar Orphan aims to provide an integrated Islamic system of care and shelter for orphans in the State of Qatar. Dhreima believes ensuring the welfare of orphans is the responsibility of society which is why partnering with other local organisations is an important aspect of their work.
