Bank al Etihad Supports KHCC's Patients
Amman, December 27, 2020 - As part of Bank al Etihad's social responsibility program, which aims to positively impact its community, and believing in the importance of the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) and Center’s (KHCC) noble mission, the bank recently extended its support to the KHCC’s Goodwill Fund, which is designed to cover the treatment costs of underprivileged cancer patients. This support comes as part of the strategic partnership between the two parties, during which Bank al Etihad provided various forms of support to several KHCF programs that aim to offer the best treatment opportunities and spread cancer awareness.
In 2020, the bank provided sponsorship for the KHCC’s Academy of Education and Training, due to its belief in the importance of the role that this academy plays in preparing highly skilled, professional medical personnel.
Regarding this partnership, Mrs. Nisreen Qatamish, Director General of the KHCF, said: "We appreciate the efforts made by Bank al Etihad in supporting us, and we look forward to continuing this meaningful cooperation, so that we can achieve our mission and save more patients who are fighting cancer with determination."
Mrs. Nadia Al Saeed, Chief Executive Officer of Bank al Etihad, referred to the significance of social responsibility to the bank, and its adoption of a special strategy that goes in line with the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), and that “our clients and community are our family, and we always look forward to building effective partnerships with community institutions to increase the impact of these initiatives, and working to ensure everyone's right to a better future”. She also added, "Our partnership with the KHCF and KHCC extends for over a decade, and comes from our belief in the noble mission and the important role it plays in society, in a way that is in proportion with the pillars of our social responsibility, GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being, in particular.
It is worth mentioning that the KHCF’s Goodwill Fund was established in 2003 to help underprivileged cancer patients whose treatment costs are not covered by any party, regardless of their nationality, age, or gender.
