TRIBUNE NEWS NETWORK
DOHA MASRAF Al Rayan, one of the leading Islamic banks in Qatar, has signed a partnership agreement with the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) to launch its charity card to help people benefit from the services of the QRCS.
The launch of the new cobranded charity card, to be used exclusively for Qatar Red Crescent activities, is part of Masraf Al Rayan’s corporate social responsibility.
The agreement was signed on Thursday at the Masraf headquarters by Masraf Group CEO Adel Mustafawi and Qatar Red Crescent Executive Director Saleh Ali al Mohannadi.
As part of the agreement, Masraf will launch the charity cards which are convenient and easy to use within and beyond Qatar.
Mustafawi said: “Corporate social responsibility at Masraf Al Rayan is an ongoing involvement. We have constantly endeavoured to work with organisations which work with the less privileged.
In this context, we are privileged to be working closely with Qatar Red Crescent. We are confident that the launch of this charity card will go a long way in significantly contributing towards the humanitarian role played by Qatar Red Crescent for the benefit of the needy families in particular and support their programmes across the country and beyond.” Mohannadi said that the agreement represented a partnership for charitable causes that goes a long way in promoting the role of humanitarian establishments and civil societies which have a huge social impact on the individual and community.
“We are confident that the partnership with Masraf Al Rayan in this direction will strengthen and activate cooperation that will bear fruits in the near future, God willing,” he said.
Manal al Sulaiti, head of social development department at the QRCS, emphasised the social role being played by Qatar Red Crescent for the benefit of needy families and children.
She outlined the QRCS’s comprehensive contribution that runs throughout the year, in line with a set strategy aimed at improving its involvement in various social causes.
The partnership with Masraf Al Rayan would improve and develop the interaction with needy families and groups, she said.
The launch of the charity card reaffirms Masraf Al Rayan’s contribution that goes beyond its role as a leading financial institution that believes in lending helping to needy and actively contributing to various charity projects and campaigns.
Masraf Al Rayan has significantly contributed to various charitable causes and prominent humanitarian initiatives.
These include the ‘Dirham Recycling’ project of Qatar Foundation wherein Masraf customers donated surplus dirhams and rials for projects of Qatar Charity, thus reinforcing the commitment of the establishment to social responsibility and solidarity across various segments of the society.
