In line with our community outreach efforts, Mumtalakat oversaw several corporate social responsibility initiatives (CSR) during the past year:
Share The Meal
An initiative of the UN World Food Programme (WFP), the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger. Mumtalakat created its own team, “#Mumtalakat4BH”, on Share The Meal with a challenge to donate 10,000 meals during the month of Ramadan. Staff from Mumtalakat and from local portfolio companies, as well as friends and families contributed a total of 8,444 meals.
Partnership with the Conserving Bounties Society
Mumtalakat also partnered with the Conserving Bounties Society to organise a food packing initiative aimed at tackling food wastage during Ramadan. Staff members from Mumtalakat and portfolio companies, including family members, volunteered to help pack meals from select hotels, which, in turn, were distributed to needy families. In addition, staff members donated essential food supplies to the society to support their Soup Kitchen, where fresh meals were prepared and distributed to families in need.
Annual Blood Donation Drive
In line with our ongoing efforts to encourage community service within our group of companies, we organised a blood drive, in partnership with the Ministry of Health’s Central Blood Bank. The event brought together staff members from the Mumtalakat group in Bahrain and other companies located in the Arcapita Building and Bahrain Bay area, as well as their family members and friends. Approximately 50 units of blood was collected.
Donation to Batelco Child Welfare Centre
Mumtalakat donated furniture, iPads, and other promotional items to the Batelco Child Welfare Centre.
