In line with its CSR plans to raise awareness for local health-related issues and contribute to economic growth, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) recently sponsored a program titled ‘Building Parents Abilities in the Prevention of Drug Use and Negative Behavior’ initiated by The National Anti-Drug Media Project (Ghiras). Held in collaboration with Mentor International and under the supervision of the Ministry of State for Youth Affairs, Ghiras honored ABK for its contribution at a ceremony that took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Kuwait last week.

During the event, the Bank received a trophy from Dr. Ahmed Al Shatti General Manager of Ghiras and H.E Hind Al-Sabeeh, Minister of Social Affairs & Labor and Economic Affairs, which was collected by Mr. Fawzy Al Thunayan, General Manager - Board Affairs at ABK.

“Through our sponsorship of initiatives by Ghiras, we are engaged in helping to raise awareness on serious issues such as the prevention of drug abuse and negative behavior among the youth,” said Fawzy Al Thunayan, General Manager - Board Affairs at ABK. “We hope to continue contributing to these kinds of activities to promote greater awareness and understanding of the prevention of drug-related issues.”

The awareness program, which will run for 3 months, aims at educating families to prevent their children from using drugs and negative behavior, and acts as an educational platform by including training sessions and workshops to build families abilities in prevention of drug use.
