Doha Bank has contributed QR2mn in donations to Qatar Charity’s project that provides quarantined migrant workers in the Industrial Area with food and medical supplies.
The step comes in light of the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management’s recent decision to conduct necessary medical examinations for the coronavirus. In keeping with its corporate social responsibility (CSR), Doha Bank’s initiative is dedicated to bolstering the Qatari government’s efforts and precautionary measures as to restrict the spread of the contagious virus.
Recently, the bank also donated 1,000 tablets in support of the Qatar Charity’s E-learning initiative with the aim of helping the needy students to resume the learning process online.
The initiative, which is part of Qatar Charity’s ‘Our Good for Our People’ campaign, complements the Qatari government’s efforts to combat the virus, following its decision to suspend public and private schools and universities until further notice.
Speaking about Doha Bank’s step, Ahmad al-Henzab, head of Administration & Properties, said: “In continuation to the efforts exerted to uphold the government’s decisions with the aim of eliminating the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, Doha Bank has donated QR2mn in order to facilitate the flow of necessary supplies of food and medicine to help the quarantined migrant workers in the Industrial Area, following the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management’s decision to perform crucial medical tests on the workers.
“At Doha Bank, we reiterate our keenness to be one of the effective institutions in promoting our government’s preventive actions, which are imperative to the safety and well-being of all citizens and residents. We at Doha Bank stress our commitment to support our leadership’s decisions and precautionary measures to protect the safety of our nation. We would also like to extend our gratitude and appreciation for the Qatari government and its bodies, the health sector in particular, for all of its extraordinary efforts to contain the situation.”
