The Group’s gesture reflects its strong commitment to its corporate social responsibility obligations and its duty to contribute to national efforts to safeguard the wellbeing of the community.
The contribution to the Fund is also aimed at supporting the business sector, especially small and medium companies and individual entrepreneurs who are facing significant challenges due to the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
