Al Hilal’s Visit to The Friendship Society

As part of the company’s annual Corporate Social responsibility initiative in the holy month of Ramadan, Al Hilal Life employees visited the Friendship Society for the Blind, which is a center that specializes in caring for children with full or partial visual impairment. Habib Jaafar, Zainab Abd Ali, Abbas Fadhel and Aalaa Haji interacted with the children whose ages ranged between 3 and 10, through fun games and distribution of prizes. They also handed out to each child gifts and sweets in “Gerga’oun” bags.

When asked about their experience, Zainab said that “I very much enjoyed this visit, and I hope that more people would volunteer in such centers to make the children happy.” As for Habib, he mentioned that “it was an enlightening experience, and it reminded me to be thankful for the simple things that I take for granted every day.”

Head of the Friendship Society for the Blind Mr. Ali Haji and the rest of the management team thanked Al Hilal Life for the donation and for their engaging visit, and wished the company all the best in its future CSR events.
