    100 children benefit for an entire year

    Al Rajhi Bank recently signed an agreement with the Disabled Children Association under which the integrated clinic is to be developed and rebuilt while ensuring its operations run for a full year. Donations will amount to 1,496,000 Saudi Riyals, which Al Rajhi Bank will undertake as one of its sustainable social responsibility projects to ensure its success.

    The agreement was signed by His Excellency Dr. Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Al-Tamimi, CEO of the association, and Mr. Muhammad Al-Yami, Director of Institutional Communication at the bank, in the presence of a number of officials from both sides at the Disabled Children Association’s headquarters in Riyadh.

    Dr. Ahmed Al-Tamimi praised Al Rajhi Bank for its societal initiative in adopting such projects, stressing the importance of continuous cooperation between sectors to provide high quality services across all parts of our beloved kingdom. This project, God willing, will bring an added value in offering treatment and creating suitable conditions for children with disabilities. As a result, God willing, more than 100 children from the ages of 0 to 12 will have access to clinical services with 3 hours of treatment per day for a whole year.

    The bank’s donation comes in support of the association’s programs under its social responsibility, to help organizations reach their goals and contribute to addressing disabilities in light of the monumental steps taken since its inception more than four decades ago.

    Al Rajhi Bank is keen on adopting sustainable projects to serve the community, with this project taken as a model for community service through the complete cooperation between the bank and the Disabled Children Association.

    Since its establishment, the bank has continued to support many projects for the benefit of the community in every aspect, whether in education, health, training, or through the support of charities. In addition, the bank has initiated and put volunteering into action during the last five years, in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 to reach a total of one million volunteers, God willing.

    Al Rajhi Bank has recently joined hands with the Saudi Food Bank for distributing 50 thousand meals in a month to the beneficiaries registered at the association who were greatly affected by the pandemic, since all the events and celebrations were cancelled. The cancellation of events resulted in the absence of surplus food to be distributed as usual. Al Rajhi Bank decided to coordinate with the Saudi Food Bank to distribute those meals in five cities: Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Jubail, and Al-Ahsaa.

    This initiative is one of Al Rajhi Bank’s recent social responsibility initiatives for the most needy families, and is an extension of the initiative of His Royal Highness Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz, Governor of Riyadh, that was launched yesterday to help the poor and the expatriates who were affected by the pandemic in Riyadh, all with the aim of alleviating the damage caused by the pandemic.

    In 2020, Al Rajhi Bank participated in a number of initiatives to aid the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic such as, supporting the Health Endowment Fund with 25 million SAR, donating 15.5 million SAR to the Community Fund, an initiative launched by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development and the General Authority of Endowments to intensify the collective efforts, increase the private and governmental donations and direct them through the most effective channels to meet the necessary needs of those affected by the pandemic. In addition, Al Rajhi Bank supported Watan Al-‘Ataa’ initiative with 9.1 million SAR in cooperation with the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development to support the needy families stuck in their homes especially the sick and elderly, and to provide them with the food and medical supplies.

    It goes without saying that Al Rajhi Bank’s management and employees believe with full conviction in the importance of the integration between the public and private sector to achieve the general strategy and vision of our beloved Kingdom. That’s why the Bank has always been one of the most important supporters of this integration through direct support or active participation in the social initiatives.
