12 August 2012
IBQ’s annual “Do Good Deeds in the Month of Charity” campaign has recently kick-started with the bank’s management and team, headed by the Managing Director, Jabra Ghandour, reaching out to Rumailah Hospital to bring ease and comfort during Ramadan to the young and elderly in partnership with W Doha Hotel & Residences.
In its fourth consecutive edition, IBQ’s Ramadan campaign is strongly in line with the bank’s solid commitment towards the welfare of its community by engaging its senior officials and staff through volunteer endeavors across the country.
The campaign saw IBQ’s team visiting the Pediatrics ward at Rumailah celebrating the occasion by offering gifts to children.
For the second year in a row, an Iftar banquet was also held for the elderly residents at the hospital in collaboration with W Doha Hotel & Residences where nutritional, well-balanced meals minding the medical standards and conditions of the patients were offered along with IBQ’s necessity-bags. Attending the Iftar banquet was Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director of IBQ and Gerald Chevasson, Hotel Manager of W Doha Hotel & Residences.
Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director of IBQ said: “IBQ’s commitment to Rumailah Hospital is an endeavor we live up to and continue to develop year on year. We’re happy to be partnering with W Doha, once again, and we thank them for their generous contribution to our campaign.”
“Our strong sense of social responsibility stems from our firm belief in the significance of supporting our society and investing the effort and time to actively engage with the various walks of our community. At IBQ, we place very high importance on our role as conscious corporate citizens and this is a value that is deeply engrained throughout our culture and the way we do business.” added Ghandour.
Safak Guvenc, General Manager of W Doha Hotel & Residences said: “The holy month of Ramadan is a wonderful occasion for every person to add value to everything they do. It is for this particular reason that we’ve come on board IBQ’s campaign as we feel it is a great community initiative. At W Doha, CSR ranks high on our corporate agenda and we save no effort to sustain it and grow it on an annual basis.”
