Abdul Hakeem Mostafawi, chief executive officer of HSBC Bank Middle East Limited, Qatar said: “This will be our fifth consecutive year of taking part in this activity during the Holy Month of Ramadan. The support we continue to receive from customers and staff has been overwhelming. We all have items at home that we do not need any more but are still in good condition. I encourage everyone to take the time and make the effort to bring these in to our branches”.

Other charity initiatives include distributing food boxes to a few needy families, Iftar meals for the elderly and orphans. HSBC Qatar has been actively supporting a number of local community activities to share in the spirit of Ramadan.
