As the Holy Month of Ramadan draws to an end, Al Hilal Bank, one of the UAE's leading Islamic banks, has announced that it will reward its minor account holders with AED 100 as an ‘Eidiya’ or money gift to express its compassion and support for children.
Parents or guardians of Al Hilal’s minor or ‘seghaar’ customers are invited to bring their children to any Al Hilal branch from August 11 to 16, 2012 to collect the generous gift and enjoy a little spending money in time for Eid al-Fitr. Al Hilal is planning more promotions and activities specifically benefitting children. The bank currently has a section dedicated to children’s accounts at its Mall Branch at the Abu Dhabi Corniche and will be the bank sponsor of the Kidszania interactive edutainment centre.
“We are always on the lookout for creative ways to win the hearts of our customers, including the little ones who are being educated on money matters at such a young age. Our eidiya is a perfect way to bring a smile to our young clients on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr,” said Mohamed Jamil Berro, CEO, Al Hilal Bank.
Al Hilal Bank is fully-owned by the Abu Dhabi Investment Council, the investment arm of the Government of Abu Dhabi. It manages 22 local branches and 114 ATMs across the UAE as well as three overseas branches in Kazakhstan.
