Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) is participating in UNHCR’s “2 Billion Kilometres to Safety” campaign, which calls on people all over the world to cover the distance travelled by refugees each year, championing individual acts of solidarity. ABK’s participation falls in line with World Humanitarian Day, which is marked universally on 19 August through initiatives and projects committed to recognizing humanitarian personnel.
ABK is encouraging both staff and customers to take part in the campaign, with the Bank targeting a total distance of 5,000 kilometres by the end of the year. People interested in participating in the campaign can find all the information on: https://stepwithrefugees.org/en-ae/abk/
According to UNHCR, refugees around the world are forced to travel a total of approximately two billion kilometres every year to reach the first point of safety. The ‘2 Billion Kilometres to Safety’ campaign invites people to act in solidarity and run, walk or cycle to achieve a cumulative total of two billion kilometres.
ABK is participating in the campaign to make a difference in the communities in which it operates. Through its CSR initiatives, ABK advocates inclusive, social and sustainable development and the creation of a more equitable society.
