(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) In line with its commitment to the communities in which it operates, HSBC Bank #Oman SAOG has concluded the distribution of 2,250 food hampers to low income families across the country in preparation for Ramadan.


The food hampers contained nonperishable food items typically consumed throughout the holy month including dates, powdered milk, sugar, and rice, among others. A number of employees from across the bank's nationwide branch network supported the philanthropic initiative by being actively involved first-hand in distribution efforts, in collaboration with NGOs and local wali offices across their respective regions.


Andrew Long, chief executive officer, HSBC Bank Oman, said, ''We always ensure that our staff feel empowered to do the right thing in and out of work, engaging in public projects and offring their time for the greater good of the communities they serve.


This Ramadan initiative has now become a staple event in our annual corporate social responsibility calendar that allows us to draw a smile on many families' faces and we continue to see more staff participate in this effort year on year, which further reinforces our commitment to #Oman and its people.''


Later on in Ramadan, HSBC Bank #Oman volunteers will once again be hosting a group of children from the #Oman Child Care Centre for iftar, coupled with some fun and entertaining activities. Across the HSBC Group, every employee is entitled to take at least one day off per year to participate in voluntary activities. Last year, employees volunteered for 409,911 hours of their own time in activities supported by HSBC, translating into 255,925 hours of work time.
