Barwa Bank supports Best Buddies Al Shafallah

Doha, June 11- Barwa Bank, Qatar’s fastest growing Shari’ah compliant banking service provider, was the proud Silver Sponsor of Buddylicious, an exclusive cooking workshop organised by Stenden University Qatar and Event Management for 30 students from Best Buddies AlShafallah, on Sunday 9th June, 2013 at Al Jazi Compound, West Bay.

Barwa Bank was keen to support the event organised to engage students with special needs and create awareness of Best Buddies AlShafallah, a non-profit initiative dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-on-one friendships and integrated employment. During the day’s activities the students were given a fun and interactive master class in cooking. 

Mr. Steve Troop, CEO, Bawa Bank commented, “Barwa Bank was honoured to be the Silver Sponsor of Buddylicious. It reflects our strong commitment to nurturing and supporting those less fortunate and helping them flourish and grow. I applaud Best Buddies for the invaluable work they are doing in providing opportunities of socialisation, training and career support for people with intellectual disabilities across Qatar and we look forward to collaborating further with them in the future.”

Barwa Bank consistently plays an important role in national and international humanitarian causes and will be reviving its Ramadan corporate social responsibility initiatives this year.
