Bank Sohar extends help to Al Noor Association for the Blind

The bank’s on-going help to the association as nicely as other non-profit organisations nationwide falls below its method to positively contribute by means of sustainable investments that empower communities of differently abled person, additional their education, coaching and socio-financial welfare. The donation cheque was handed more than to Ibrahim Hamdoon al Harthi, chairman of Al Noor Association for the Blind, at their headquarters in Muscat by Mazin Mahmood al Raisi, sr AGM and head of Marketing and Customer Experience at Bank Sohar.

Ahmed al Musalmi, CEO of Bank Sohar, mentioned, “Education is critical to any nation’s advancement, and that should comprise all segments of society, including those that are visually impaired, physically challenged and/or with limited social and economic opportunities. By enabling Al Noor Association for the Blind to provide better means of communication, Bank Sohar is ultimately providing a greater scope of learning opportunities for the association’s benefactors. Our contribution thus delivers sustainable value and helps to bring a far broader range of opportunities for this valued segment of society whilst promoting the association’s continued efforts in meeting their objectives. We commend the association’s on-going efforts and wish them all the best in their endeavours.”

Harthi mentioned, “We thank Bank Sohar for funding this important piece of equipment. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the fact that the quality of care we provide to our beneficiaries is largely a result of the support that we receive from the private sector; thus, we hope the bank’s support inspires other corporations.”
