Nasser Al Amri, Founder and General Manager of Sunaae Almajd, which specialises in designing social responsibility projects and he introduced the concept of HSR to the employees of Al Madina Takaful.

We are driven by the belief that every employee has the ability to help make our local community better through special efforts.”
