Capital Bank has renewed the strategic partnership agreement with Tkiyet Um Ali for the fifth year in a row. The Bank will sponsor 10 disadvantaged families benefiting from the Tkiyet Um Ali program that are distributed throughout the Kingdom through a monthly food package sufficient for the preparation of three meals a day.
The agreement was signed by Capital Bank Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Isam Samara, and Tkiyet Um Ali Director of Resource Development, Ibrahim Fakhir.
Capital Bank has consistently supported Tkiyet Um Ali's efforts to combat hunger by providing sustainable food support to families living below the food poverty line.
In addition to supporting the Family Sponsorship Program, Capital Bank is keen to create opportunities to actively involve the Bank’s volunteers in various volunteer programs organized by Tkiyet Um Ali, such as food packaging and distribution to beneficiary families, home renovations and other programs throughout the year.
During the month of Ramadan, Capital Bank also sponsored an Iftar hosted by Tkiyet Um Ali as part of the “Mawa’ed Al-Rahman” program. A number of Bank employees and members of the Executive Management volunteered to serve an Iftar for fasting guests who came to the Tkiyet Um Ali headquarters on a daily basis throughout the holy month.
"We highly value Capital Bank's strong efforts to promote the concept of sustainable food security and support disadvantaged families throughout the year by providing healthy and sustainable food support programs," commented Samara on the Bank’s partnership with Tkiyet Um Ali.
He added: "We place special importance on Tkiyet Um Ali’s initiatives to achieve sustainable development that are consistent with our objectives and aspirations. We also aim to strengthen our role in the area of corporate social responsibility through partnerships and cooperation agreements with local actors who play an active role in society.”
From his side, Fakhir said: "We are proud to be working with Capital Bank, which is considered to be one of the leading banks in the Jordanian market and has made significant contributions to community outreach and development. The support received by Tkiyet Um Ali from national companies and institutions such as Capital bank bears witness to the absolute faith in our vision of reaching a hunger-free Jordan."
Fakhir further pointed out that Tkiyet Umm Ali is currently delivering monthly and sustainable food support to 30,000 families living below the food poverty line across all the governorates of the Kingdom, amounting up to 160,000 individuals who have food parcels delivered to them monthly and throughout the year.
