DOHA: Commercial Bank has organised an Iftar in honour of the elderly residents of the Empowerment and Elderly Care Centre (Ehsan).
The Iftar was held as part of Commercial Bank's series of CSR initiatives focusing on the Qatari community during the holy month of Ramadan and to coincide with the United Nations' annual Global Day of Parents.
A team from Commercial Bank team visited the residents at Ehsan and shared an Iftar buffet with them in an atmosphere of solidarity and happiness that comes with the breaking of the fast.
Commercial Bank Group CEO, Joseph Abraham, said: 'Our Iftar with Ehsan is a gesture of solidarity, appreciation and respect for the older generation who have done so much for Qatar. The United Nations' Global Day of Parents provides an opportunity to thank all parents for their selfless commitment to children and this Iftar was our way of marking this occasion and keeping with an important social value during Ramadan.
Seeking to provide a safe, stable life for Qatar's elderly citizens by offering them healthcare, social and psychological services, Ehsan provides home-based care and raises public awareness, especially amongst families, about embracing the elderly. Ehsan strives to develop an integrated care system that includes the home, the hospital and the nursing home to support the elderly.
