KUWAIT: Zain, the leading digital service provider in Kuwait, announced the continuation of its support to the humanitarian efforts exerted by the Kuwait Food Bank. Zain’s continuous support comes as part of its strategic partnership with the bank, which organizes many relief campaigns inside and outside of Kuwait.

Zain spares no efforts to achieve its comprehensive corporate sustainability and social responsibly strategy that closely focuses on supporting humanitarian initiatives. The company strongly believes that launching and supporting humanitarian initiatives helps to infuse a sense of responsibility into members of the society, and help support those who are in need of help.

Zain recently allocated the entire proceeds of this year’s Waqf to the humanitarian efforts and campaigns of the Kuwait Food Bank, including the distribution of food baskets and essential winter needs to underprivileged individuals and families. This has led The Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation (KAPF) to recognize Zain last month.

Zain expressed its pride in this recognition from KAPF, which further highlights the company’s commitment in enriching the culture of giving and social contribution through launching humanitarian campaigns and supporting initiatives adopted by leading non-profit organizations inside and outside of Kuwait. Zain prides itself on the long track of records and contributions it has put in philanthropic areas over the years, being one of the leading companies in the private sector.

The Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation recognized Zain in 2018 for its role as one of the first Kuwaiti companies to dedicate a KD 1 million Waqf at KAPF since 1996 as endorsed by the Board of Directors, where all of the Waqf’s annual proceeds are dedicated for various charity programs every year.

Last year’s entire proceeds were dedicated to the humanitarian efforts of the Kuwait Food Bank both inside and outside of Kuwait. Such efforts included distributing meals, holding iftar banquets, offering food baskets, as well as conducting relief campaigns all year round.

Zain is proud of its long list of programs and contributions that serve noble causes through strategically partnering with entities that adopt humanitarian work, including non-profit organizations, governmental institutions, and global entities.
