Burgan Bank, a leading contributor to progress in the Kuwaiti society, recently held its dedicated ‘ENGAGE’ Toy Drive Initiative in participation of its staff. “Engage Toy Drive” is an internal collection and contributed gifts to Kuwait Association for Care of Children in Hospitals (KACCH). 

Conducted for the first time within Burgan Bank, this initiative was aimed to draw smiles on the faces of the children and share an encouraging gesture on their journey to recovery. Investing in the betterment of Kuwait’s younger generations, Burgan Bank constantly strives to enhance lives of the most vulnerable groups and create meaningful experiences for all segments of the community.

Additionally, the gesture highlights the importance of volunteering and encourages employees to actively participate in causes driven by Burgan Bank. Drawing inspiration from the act of giving, the employees expressed their enthusiasm in sharing in the joy of the children undergoing treatment.

The toys were delivered to KACCH premises, who relayed their gratitude towards the initiative that brought happiness and excitement to all of the little ones. The toys were distributed to all of the clubs that have been allocated by the association in many public and private hospitals in Kuwait. The association has been effortlessly ensuring a healthy and entertaining environment for the benefit of the children.

 Supporting the healthcare sector within pediatric facilities at various health institutions plays an integral part in the bank’s corporate social responsibility framework. Burgan Bank’s continued contributions have helped advance medical and pediatric facilities in several hospitals such as Bait Abdullah which is part of the KACCH, often supporting children and their families with fund treatment and recovery from fatal and terminal illnesses, as well as providing entertainment.

As a strong supporter for over sixteen years, Burgan Bank continues to build and maintain a lasting relationship with the volunteering organization through valuable initiatives. The KACCH is a non-governmental, non-profit organization registered with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour that aims to assist children in coping with the stress of being in hospital for treatment. The association pays great efforts to provide a healthy and entertaining environment to the children through the kids clubs that KACCH established in many hospitals in Kuwait. Bait Abdullah serves as a substitute home to children’s hospitals for patients suffering from terminal illnesses and their families, who need support to live a robust life. Facilities are available to provide daily care, including recreation and residential facilities for emergency or advanced cases.
