Funds pour in for ‘Together We Care’ campaign

THOUSANDS of dinars were donated by the Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB) to the Capital Governorate’s ‘Together We Care’ campaign.

It was launched to support the underprivileged and those who have been adversely affected by Covid-19, which spans across multiple economic sectors, by distributing much-needed meals during this health crisis.

The initiative is being spearheaded by Capital Governor Shaikh Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa.

The bank’s BD30,000 donation is in line with its commitment to support the local community in this difficult time, and as part of its endeavour to contribute to the unified efforts of Team Bahrain.

“Bahrain, known for its warmth and generosity, has been commended for its efforts in combating the spread of the disease,” said BisB chief executive Hassan Jarrar.

“As a local bank, we see it as our duty to be a part of local initiatives that support the kingdom’s community, citizens and residents during these difficult times.

“Following our recent donation to the medical workforce, we wanted to do our part to support the ‘Together We Care’ initiative being led by the Capital Governor, to aid the underprivileged and those who have been affected by the spread of the coronavirus, by supplying them with much-needed meals.”

Meanwhile, a total of 5,780 food bags were distributed to people affected by Covid-19 in Manama as part of the campaign.

A number of Filipinos volunteered to help in the distribution.
