Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), the leading provider of Islamic digital banking services in the Kingdom of Bahrain, announced that its volunteering team, Jood, is organizing various humanitarian and voluntary initiatives during the month of August, including the distribution of cold refreshments and hats to workers at different outdoor locations such as petrol stations, construction sites, roads, and more. The team will also visit children with cancer at numerous hospitals, offering them gifts.
The initiatives reflect BisB’s belief in the importance of giving back to the community.
