Reinforcing its values as an organization that is dedicated to serving the community, Sohar International recently provided laptops for a number of the Oman College of Health Science students that had been impacted by Cyclone Shaheen. The laptops were handed over to the students at an event held at the Oman College of Health Sciences on November 23, 2021.

Welcomed by Dr Musatafa Fahmi, Dean of the Oman College of Health Sciences, the event was commemorated in the presence of Mr. Khalil Salim Al Hedaifi, Chief Retail Banking Officer of Sohar International. Commencing with an inspiring speech from Mr. Saif Said Al Rashdi, Senior Vice President and Head of Distribution at Sohar International, the students of Al Sarooj School for Basic Education School then put up an entertaining performance of folklore. Following the performance and amidst a round of applause and cheer, Sohar International gifted the laptops to the Oman College of Health Sciences students.

“At Sohar International, we believe that the best way to honor the occasion of the country’s 51st National Day is to extend our support towards beneficial causes that have a positive impact on our nation focusing on youth” said Mr. Khalil Salim Al Hedaifi, Chief Retail Banking Officer of Sohar International. “The youth are the future of the nation and it is vital to ensure that their educational journey remains uncompromised. Acknowledging the role of technology in imparting lessons, we, therefore, decided to sponsor laptops to the university which we believe will help students continue their learning journey uninterrupted.”

Steadfast in its endeavors to support educational institutions, this initiative is in line with the bank’s principle to provide more value, more velocity and more vision by contributing towards the development of Oman’s youth and boosting their spirit of learning. The bank has also been a pioneer in supporting the youth through a variety of educational programs in the past. By providing students the needed aid to enhance their learning experience, Sohar International has been a key advocate of imparting quality education which it believes is a building block to secure a strong future for the youth.

The initiative to support the Oman College of Health Science is a testament to the bank’s continued commitment to support educational institutions and sponsor initiatives that have a long-term impact on the youth. With a strong sense of corporate social responsibility, Sohar International has remained at the forefront of community service and has partnered with various government bodies and charitable organizations to initiate a number of community welfare drives.
