CBQ conducts community activities to mark National Day
Commercial Bank (CBQ), Qatar’s first private bank, has conducted a number of outreach activities to include the wider Qatari community as part of its National Day celebrations.
Volunteers from Commercial Bank visited the children’s floor at Al Wakrah hospital, many independence schools, international schools and Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs distributing special National Day gifts.
Two girls’ independent schools performed a traditional song in front of Commercial Bank Board Members, employees and guests at Commercial Bank’s staff event honouring Qatari heritage at Commercial Bank Plaza.
Celebration events were also held at the Bank’s branches from December 10 to 14. All branches were decorated with the national colours of Qatar including flags, to welcome customers and visitors, serving popular Arabic coffee and sweets. Activities include gifts distributions to kids, henna drawing and photography booths in addition to offering photos with falconry.
Commercial Bank Group CEO Joseph Abraham said: “As a leading company in Qatar’s private sector, CSR is integral to our business and we have a responsibility to give back to the Qatari community. Qatar National Day is a proud day in Qatar’s history that all Qataris should be able to enjoy, including those in less fortunate circumstances, and also children as they are the future of the nation. We have therefore included local schools in Commercial Bank’s staff celebrations, distributed gifts to children at local hospitals, and helped many people to enjoy the National Day joy.”
