In its ongoing commitment to the well-being and health of the Qatari society, Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) Q.S.C. in cooperation with Qatar Cancer Society recently visited Hamad General Hospital to support children suffering from cancer in their battle against the disease. The initiative was marked by a distribution of gifts bringing smiles to children's faces during the holy month of Ramadan.

Ms. Abeer Al Kalla, al khaliji’s Head of Public Relations and Communications said, “We understand the impact cancer can have on a child and on family life, for this reason, we partnered with Hamad General Hospital and Qatar Cancer Society to support children and their families by bringing a smile to their faces and providing them with hope and encouragement to cope with cancer.”

During the visit, al khaliji representatives met with representatives from Hamad General Hospital and families of the children with Cancer and discussed the health progress, needs, and challenges facing the children. The team took a tour in the hospital to check on the children’s progress and handed them parting gifts while praised the endeavors and dedication of the staff and leadership of Hamad General Hospital and Qatar Cancer Society into driving their missions forward and scaling them to provide more support for children with cancer.

For her part, Ms. Mariam Hamad Al Nuaimi, General Manager of Qatar Cancer Society emphasized the importance of such events and campaigns in helping children to resist disease and defeatit. She also added these gifts are the least that can be provided for children from psychological support rather than moral support which we must all contribute to it, she added: "I thank all those who are working to support our activities in every available way and their participation in all events for cancer patients and awareness events."

From their side, Hamad General Hospital, Qatar Cancer Society and the families extended their gratitude to the al khaliji team for the continued support and efforts to alleviate pain and help children in their fight against cancer.

The visit came as part of al khaliji’s corporate social responsibility strategy which focuses on supporting educational and health-care initiatives, conserving the environment and giving back to the community. 

This Ramadan, the bank has launched for the third consecutive year a charity donation campaign. For every transaction customers make through their al khaliji debit or credit card, the bank will contribute QAR 1 to charity, effectively allowing al khaliji customers to partake in its charitable activities during the Holy month simply by carrying out their day-to-day banking activities.
