Their honest work and their tremendous efforts make me really pleased that I am chairing the team. That I have such wonderful people who are committed beyond a day to day job to contribute to CSR,” said Al Benali.
“At Equate we are committed to the community we live in, from all aspects, this is something that we not only want to show or be recognized for, rather it is something that is in our blood, we feel responsible to our society, the people, as we are blessed with the different resources we are provided with, to succeed in our business, we have a responsibility to pay back and share our successes with the society we live in,” he said. “Our efforts extend from health aspects, education, environment and sponsoring different initiatives. We are really proud that we live in Kuwait and are responsible to the society.”
