Muscat, August 24th 2016 – As part of their shared commitment to giving back to the communities they serve, Oman Arab Bank (OAB) and Oman International Development and Investment Company (Omnivest) have funded the construction of a children’s playground at the Royal Hospital in Muscat. Promoting positivity and hope, the playground will create a lasting legacy for children and provide a safe area for them to exercise and play while their families seek treatment.
Mutassim bin Hamoud Al-Zadjali, Head of Corporate Communication at Oman Arab Bank, said, “From the onset, Oman Arab Bank has been a firm believer in the importance of positively impacting communities across the Sultanate through adopting and launching various corporate social responsibility initiatives and activities. The new playground will undoubtedly make a great addition to the Royal Hospital and create an environment where children can remain entertained while their families visit the hospital.”
Hamid Al Harthi, Head of Support Services at Ominvest, added, “As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility agenda, Ominvest and its subsidiaries are committed to empowering and nurturing communities by supporting various foundations. We are happy to provide a safe and fun playground for children at Royal Hospital, especially that it’s the first initiative of its kind where children would enjoy their time while their parents are engaged in the hospital visitations. Families visiting the hospital will now enjoy the new experience of fun for children and parents. We are reviewing other fun options to be added to this playground for more enjoyment.”
