Meezan Bank Supports Friends of Adam

October 22nd, 2013

Meezan Bank, Pakistan’s first and largest Islamic bank, is supporting ‘Friends of Adam’, a welfare association for special children, for launching a unique initiative that will provide disabled members of the society a sense of accomplishment by providing them real-life work experience.

Under this initiative, a group of disabled young people will provide car tyre air pressure checking service for cars at Meezan Bank’s Head office – Meezan House, Karachi and Meezan Bank will pay them for these services. This activity will give the special children a sense of accomplishment and value-addition in the society and will help in eradicating the stereotype mindset that special children cannot be earning members of a family. Opening ceremony of this initiative was held on Tuesday, 22nd October 2014 at Meezan House and was attended by senior officials of Meezan Bank along with Mr. Tahir Bin Ghaffar, president Friends of Adam and Mr. Wajid Mahmood, Manager Marketing, Anis Tyres and the Project Consultant to Friends of Adam. ’Friends of Adam’ has been founded by Adam, a 15-year old disabled and epileptic child. Despite his physical disability, Adam has not only proved his worth to the competitive world by getting actively involved in diverse areas like sports, arts, social work, etc. but also established the association to help other special children to overcome their weaknesses.
