The Egyptian Arab Land Bank, one of the pioneers in the Jordanian banking sector, organized a football match for its employees and the King Hussein Orphanage Society on Wednesday, October 6th at Al Ittihad School in Tabarbour.

The football game entertained the likes of 25 orphans, six of which played against the EALB staff members, and the remaining youngsters cheered on their team. The Bank's regional manager Mr. Hazem Yousef took part in the match that was attended by family members of the Bank's employees.

Mr. Hazem Yousef stated, "Being able to play sports makes children happy, and through football and other fun activities children learn to develop team spirit and self-esteem."

He added, "There are an estimated 3000 orphans in Jordan, and we believe it is our duty, as a sociably responsible bank, to interact with as many orphans as possible and organize activities that we hope will put a smile on their faces and ultimately help build a better future for them. We are fully dedicated to providing support, be it in kind or financial, to various charitable organizations across the Kingdom, especially with regards to needy students and orphans."

The Egyptian Arab Land Bank develops and implements yearly social responsibility programs. This year's program has focused on supporting orphans and underprivileged children on both a financial and emotional level. This is being achieved through weekly field visits by the Bank to orphanages established under the umbrella of the Ministry of Social Development.
