Al Ain, 28th October 2010: Expectant mothers in Al Ain can expect double
the joy this month, thanks to the extension of National Bonds’ “Welcome to the
World” campaign to Tawam Hospital.
As part of the ongoing “Welcome to the World” initiative under National Bonds
Corporation PJSC’s corporate social responsibility program, any mother delivering
babies at the hospital during November received a welcome pack that included
National Bonds saving certificates of AED 100 each, a National Bonds baby book
to record their child’s memorable moments, a saving calculator guide to help
them understand the importance of saving for their child’s future at an early age,
a gift hamper and a Baby Shop discount gift voucher.
National Bonds Corporation PJSC, the leading Sharia’a compliant saving scheme,
launched the “Welcome to the World” initiative for new born babies earlier
this summer in Al Wasl Hospital in Dubai. The success of the initiative has
encouraged the company to expand its efforts further as it strives to nurture
a savings culture within the UAE by targeting young children in order to build
strong sense of financial responsibility for generations to come.
A National Bonds kiosk was placed at the hospital during the month-long
campaign to enlighten parents about the importance of saving for the future of
their small ones.
Mr. Mohammed Qasim Al Ali, Chief Executive Officer of National Bonds
Corporation PJSC, said: “We are delighted to continue our “Welcome to the
World” initiative for new born babies with the Tawam Hospital in Al Ain.
The initiative has already touched the lives of approximately 600 families in
Dubai and we are glad to continue this legacy and to play an integral role in
encouraging parents to save for their babies at an early age. Regular savings are
vital in providing a better future for our children and by extending this initiative,
we hope to continue spreading our message to families across the UAE and all
over the region.”
The new born babies will also enjoy the opportunity to be a part of the biggest
draw in the region, with 22,250 prizes given out to bondholders every month
including a monthly reward of one million dirhams. Bondholders will also be
automatically entitled to Takaful life coverage (without any additional fees) from
the age of 12 months to 70 years.
