Beirut, January 10, 2019 – In line with its core values that rest on giving back to the community in which it operates, and in keeping with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives to promote health and wellness programs, Bankmed decided to replace its end-of-year Corporate Gifts by donations to seven Lebanese NGOs, granting each one an amount of USD 30,000. Through this act, Bankmed exhibits a unique way of giving during the festive season, replacing its annual Corporate Gifts by contributions that make a difference for those in need.
The selected NGOs for this year are: Orphan Welfare Society–Saida, Dar Al Ajaza El Eslamiya, Ajialouna, Oum Al Nour, St. Vincent de Paul, Ahlouna, and Institut de Reéducation Audio-Phonetique (IRAP). These NGOs seek to address, across the Lebanese territory, social, medical, educational or cultural needs of underprivileged families, orphans, women, disabled and elderly, providing them with various healthcare and wellness programs.
This initiative comes at a crucial time as Lebanon faces tight economic and social conditions.
Through these contributions, Bankmed continues to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the community through an act that clearly accentuates the spirit of giving and highlights its mission to engage with these and other NGOs as real partners in community-related deeds.
