Bank Sohar, in its effort to ensure the continued wellbeing of the community and as part of its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility programme, has extended its support to Omani Women’s Association – Al Amerat Branch. The support was extended in order to support association activities.

Commenting on the donation, Ms. Munira Abdulnabi Macki, DGM of Human Resources and Corporate Support said, “Bank Sohar believes that investing in women fundamentally strengthens families and societies. Since their inception, The Omani Women’s Association has been helping women to realise their potential. Similarly, Bank Sohar has also been a strong advocate of women empowerment, with a large number of Omani women constituting its workforce and with many holding senior positions within the Bank. As such, we are glad to be able to offer our support to the Omani Women’s Association and hope our contribution helps them effectively tend to women in need of support and guidance.”

On receiving support from Bank Sohar, Ms Fatma Ramadan Bahajaj said, “Our organisation has experience in designing and implementing innovative programs to improve women’s social, economic, and political opportunities and enhance women’s rights. Extensive in-country networks, long-term relationships, and years of experience give us credibility, access to sources of innovation, and the necessary tools to complete our projects.The generous support we receive from organizations such as Bank Sohar go a long way in supporting our cause. I would like to express my gratitude for their support and look forward to working with them in the future”.

Bank Sohar’s contribution to our organisation will go a long way in supporting our cause.

The Bank plans to continue in its steadfast quest of philanthropy with many more donations and charitable events planned for the current year.

The goal is to improve the economic and social standing of the family and to train women to locate and obtain sources of income. The association has a wide network of branch across the sultanate.
