Jordan Ahli Bank recently announced its sponsorship of Pope Francis's first visit to the Kingdom.
The management of Jordan Ahli Bank explained that this sponsorship stems from the bank's continued commitment to actively supporting large-scale events hosted within the Kingdom in hopes of reinforcing Jordan's image as a shining example of peacemaking and cultural tolerance.
The bank's management further noted that the Pope's visit goes hand in hand with the bank's internal culture, which is founded on the principles of diversity, equality and mutual respect ̶ values that have helped the bank transform itself into a microcosm of Jordan's wide-ranging community. The Pope's endeavors for peace in the region also reflect the bank's commitment to sustainable development in the Kingdom through its various initiatives that aim to deliver measurable benefits to numerous social segments.
The visit conducted by Pope Francis - part of a historical pilgrimage to the Holy Land - is considered of paramount importance as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the historic meeting in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras in 1964. The visit is expected to have lasting benefits on a local scale by improving the services delivered to refugees and individuals with special needs and encouraging religious tourism within the Kingdom.
