MUSCAT – Bank Muscat has launched its annual Tadhamun programme in partnership with the Ministry of Social Development. In 2021, the programme will distribute 790 household appliances to 150 social welfare families across Oman. Earlier this year, the bank also provided laptops and tablets to 1,240 students from low-income families with the aim of supporting the government’s efforts to make online education available for all students in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. A joint team from the Ministry of Social Development and the bank is at present distributing household appliances to families in the Governorate of Muscat, and will continue in other governorates in the coming weeks. The distribution is being conducted after taking all precautions and in full compliance with COVID-19 social distancing norms so as to maintain the safety and health of everyone.
