RIYADH: The Insan Association hosted a charity dinner as part of its campaign during Ramadan.
The association steps up its activities during the holy month when people traditionally donate handsomely to the charity.
The Insan team, in association with the Hospitality Board Holding Co., a Riyadh-based company operating in the food and staples retail sector, hosted a meeting with the committee for the Aflaaj branch of the charity, Waddah Omran, public relations manager, said Friday.
“This meeting came under the patronage and presence of Aflaaj Gov. Zaid Al-Hussein and a number of top figures from Aflaaj city,” said Omran.
Several donors joined the charity campaign during this meeting, but the largest donation came from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Zannan, a member of the Aflaaj committee and a philanthropist, who donated SR1 million ($267,000) to the project in the Aflaaj region.
Moreover, Al-Zannan agreed to bear the costs of the Insan media campaign to foster public awareness about the charity project for orphan care.
Speaking on this occasion, Hospitality Board Chairman Hamdan Al-Bader said: “The Insan Association is sincerely concerned with orphan care, and is a group in society that is loved by all of us for its noble work.”
“It is indeed an honor for us to continue to support this charity campaign and its people,” said Al-Bader, adding that this humanitarian interest comes from the company’s social responsibility since its establishment.
The Hospitality Board Holding Co. ownes local restaurants including Sizzler House, Canton, Tako Hut, Roma Way, Shawirmarito and Coffee Aroma.
Saleh Al-Yousef, Insan Association general manager , said: “We thank the Hospitality Board for hosting this meeting, for their constant response in coordination to support Insan on various occasions, and Sizzler House for providing wonderful hospitality.”
The Insan Association focuses on enhancing orphan care through emphasizing the importance of education to make orphans self-reliant.
