Emirates NBD supports Al Noor Centre
Emirates NBD, the regional leader in terms of assets, is always at the forefront of several community focused initiatives that set the standard for corporate social responsibility. In conjunction with this commitment to be actively involved within the society, Emirates NBD proudly announces its support of the Al Noor Make a Difference Campaign that will commence at the start of the holy month of Ramadan, 2009.
To help contribute to the great cause of the Al Noor organization and assist with providing the means for the children with special needs to meet their full potential, Emirates NBD customers will be encouraged to contribute a monthly donation of AED 25 and above through their credit cards.
The campaign will begin with forms detailing the donation process that will be distributed with the bank’s monthly statements to all the customers throughout the UAE.
This will help ensure that sustainable funds will be raised to cover the costs of operating, developing and maintaining the Al Noor Training Centre.
Mr. Saif Al Mansoori, Head of Business Marketing in Emirates NBD Group commented, “We have always been committed to establishing Emirates NBD, not only as a financial service provider within the community but also as a caring and responsible member of society. We are dedicated to lending our support in any way we can in order to enhance the growth and development of the community that we are all a part of. This is an excellent cause, and we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the wonderful work that the Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs has done and continues to do with such great dedication, it is truly admirable.”
The Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs is the first organization of its kind in the Middle East. It was established in 1981 with eight children enrolled; today that number exceeds two hundred and fifty. The centre provides an extensive training program that includes therapy, work placement, computer and vocational training for children that face challenges such as Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autism.
The Al Noor Make a Difference Campaign will run for an extensive duration after commencing with the start of the holy month of Ramadan. Emirates NBD patrons who wish to contribute to this cause can inquire about the details at any bank branch, or call 043160316
