Sharing a moment of happiness with children on the occasion of World Music Day was the objective of the Staff Welfare Committee of the ABC Banking Corporation.
The bank employees also took advantage of this occasion to offer musical instruments to the children, hailing from the NGO Caritas’ centres at Pailles and Casis.
Diverse activities were organised at the event, in particular singing, dancing and face painting.
“This initiative allowed those bank employees who volunteered to celebrate World Music Day together with the children who frequent the two centres. At first, our purpose was to donate in one of the institutions managed by Caritas, but seeing the enthusiasm of the employees, the event took a different, more personalised, form,” underlined Abdullah Nurmahomed, Head of Treasury at ABC Banking Corporation and President of the Staff Welfare Committee.
“The employees had several ideas and gifts collected within the bank allowed us to share moments of happiness with the children of these two centers,” Abdullah Nurmahomed added.
According to Patricia Adèle-Félicité, Secretary General of Caritas,” I was very satisfied when the team asked to spend time in our centers, instead of settling with sending a cheque. Together, we thought about a method that would suit both the children and also the employees of the bank. Through this project, Caritas achieved its goal, which is to make a difference in the lives of those we accompany.”
Besides, the Staff Welfare Committee of the ABC Banking Corporation indicated that it planned to repeat this charitable act. This committee has for its main objective to oversee the development of bank employees by organising activities such as excursions, lunches or sports days, among others.
