GIB makes its first donation to the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society

Gulf International Bank (GIB) recently made its first donation in line with its new Corporate Social Responsibility programme ‘WAGIB’ to the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society.

Nader Shaheen, Head of Corporate Communications at GIB presented the cheque to Jehad Al Zain, Deputy Chairman of the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society, accompanied by Ahmed A. Al-Ali, Treasurer of the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society.

GIB CEO Dr. Yahya Alyahya commented: “GIB is proud to partner with the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society, supporting the community in which it operates, and helping promote public awareness of Down Syndrome in both the local and expatriate communities.”

The Bahrain Down Syndrome Society provides direct and indirect support to individuals with Down Syndrome, their parents and their families. It also works towards the development of local service available to individuals with Down Syndrome in the fields of health, psychology, education and social skills.

This initiative falls under GIB’s new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme ‘WAGIB’ launched this year, which aims at supporting local communities.

GIB is owned by the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries, with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund being the major shareholder.

Gulf International Bank (GIB) is a pan-GCC universal bank that specializes in corporate and investment banking and has a growing retail franchise. In addition to its main subsidiaries, London-based Gulf International Bank (UK) Ltd., and Riyadh-based GIB Capital LLC, it has branches in London, New York, Abu Dhabi, Dhahran, Riyadh and Jeddah with representative offices in Dubai and Beirut.
