(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muscat- As part of Bank Sohar CSR largesse outlined under Sohar al Atta, the bank recently supported the Oman Diabetes Association. The funds will go towards the purchase of glucose meters and height and weight scales of the association's 2018 campaign on diabetes.
Munira Abdulnabi Macki, Bank Sohar's GM, HR and Corporate Support, said, 'We firmly believe in giving back to the society and empowering those sections of the community with the right opportunities and access to proper enhanced facilities in healthcare, education and living standards.
'Bank Sohar has been a strong voice in the local community for programmes that support underserved sections of the society and assisting an awareness campaign on crucial health-related topics such as diabetes forms part of our CSR goals under Sohar al Atta.
'We share the same objectives as that of the Oman Diabetes Association in generating patient advocacy, providing medical support and facilitating communication among those in the private sector who are invested in the nation's health.'
Mazin Mahmood al Raisi, senior AGM and head of Marketing and Customer Experience from Bank Sohar, handed over the cheque to Dr Noora Bader al Busaidi, president, Oman Diabetes Association.
Dr Noora thanked the bank and said, 'We are grateful to Bank Sohar for once again assisting us with the purchase of life-saving equipment in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes as well as for their support towards our awareness campaign. We are happy that they are setting a precedent for the private sector to be proactively involved in the health of the nation and look forward to their continued support.'
Last year, Bank Sohar contributed towards the purchase of five special vital signs monitors, four flat scales with cabled remote display and four portable stadiometres.
