Zain Telecom organized a ceremony honoring the outstanding students in cooperation with its strategic partner, the Kuwait Food and Relief Bank, and honored 250 outstanding male and female orphans registered with the bank from the primary, middle and secondary levels, amid precautionary health measures.
The honoring ceremony, which was held at the bank’s headquarters in Cordoba, was attended by the CEO of Relations and Communications at Zain Kuwait, Walid Al-Khashti, the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Kuwait Bank for Food and Relief Mishaal Al-Ansari, and the company and bank officials.
Al-Khashti said, “I congratulate my outstanding sons and daughters for the achievement they have achieved during this exceptional school year, as their achievement would not have become a reality without their perseverance and effort, and today they are reaping the fruits of all that fatigue and effort.”
Al-Khashti added, “We are pleased to continue to support the various initiatives and social and charitable programs organized by our colleagues in the Kuwait Bank for Food and Relief throughout the year.”
He pointed out that this cooperation is only a real translation of effective solidarity between private sector institutions and public benefit associations in Kuwait, to serve the various humanitarian and social issues in the country.
For his part, Al-Ansari praised Zain’s initiatives aimed at providing all means of support and care for community events, including this event, which was organized in appreciation of the students’ efforts, and their keenness on diligence and perseverance throughout the school year despite the Corona pandemic, and to encourage outstanding students to continue their academic excellence.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Zain, in cooperation with its strategic partner, the Kuwait Bank for Food and Relief, has launched many charitable and humanitarian initiatives, such as providing the “Ramadan machete” to needy families inside Kuwait to secure their basic food needs before entering the blessed month of Ramadan, which benefited more than 10,000 beneficiaries this year.
At the beginning of 2020, the company provided, as a gesture to support the tremendous efforts made by the state during exceptional circumstances, more than 40,000 meals in cooperation with the Kuwait Food and Relief Bank, a large number of which were distributed during the week allocated by the Ministry of Health to examine the residents returning to the country in the land of International exhibitions in Mishref area to reduce the long waiting times for them, and many meals were distributed continuously at Kuwait International Airport inside the waiting halls for planes that were designated for evacuating residents returning to their countries.
Zain stressed that it devotes more efforts to support humanitarian and educational initiatives in the country, and that it will spare no effort to harness its material and human capabilities to strengthen ties with bodies and institutions concerned with charitable work, and to support educational projects and initiatives that effectively contribute to human development in general.
