Sharjah: Sharjah Islamic Bank has obtained an accreditation certificate from the World Disability Union (the regional office) as a friendly entity for people with special needs. The certification comes following the bank’s success in qualifying three of its branches to be suitable for people with special needs- the branches are in City Center Mirdif, Mall of the Emirates and Sahara Center.

Sharjah Islamic Bank is keen to provide the highest international standards in this field, which includes facilitating access and usage through technologies, mechanisms, and systems that enhance independence and allow usage of their branches.

Sharjah Islamic Bank was honored during the ceremony organized by the regional office of the World Disability Union as part of its celebrations of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which honors the bodies that implement standards and practices for people of determination, in the presence of His Excellency Mohamed Abdalla, CEO of Sharjah Islamic Bank.

His Excellency Mohamed Abdalla said, “Today, as a national bank, we are pleased to be present at the ceremony of the World Disability Union and to receive this certification. I am pleased to commend the efforts of the Union which contribute to promoting the integration of people of determination in society and their support of the best practices. We extend our thanks, also, to His Excellency Dr Tariq Sultan bin Khadim, Vice President of the World Disability Union, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Al Thiqah Club for Handicapped, for supporting this initiative. We at Sharjah Islamic Bank are honored to be part of Sharjah’s success story as a friendly emirate for people of determination.”

His Excellency Mohamed Abdalla confirmed that the ceremony, organized by the regional office of the World Disability Union, is part of the efforts and achievements made by the emirate of Sharjah to serve people with disabilities since it received the title of “friendly city for people with mobility disabilities and amputations” two years ago. The appointment of the title falls in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, to facilitate the people of determination in the emirate and enable them to have access to facilities and institutions.

CEO of Sharjah Islamic Bank added, "At Sharjah Islamic Bank, we celebrate today our success in the qualifying of three of our branches as disability-friendly, and work is underway to do the same through the rest of our branches, according to the standards of the World Disability Union. We continue to work to implement the best policies and practices that enable people of determination to lead a normal life in society, We call on all institutions to follow the example of those who have succeeded in rehabilitating and preparing their facilities to serve our residents and citizens with disabilities, who are an integral part of our society.”

Sharjah Islamic Bank continuously strives to provide all electronic services and facilities, which are designed to meet the requirements of the retail and corporate customers during the current period. The bank seeks to support the nation’s efforts to contain the Coronavirus under the slogan " We Commit Until We Succeed,” and aligns with the UAE’s vision 2021, aimed at achieving a competitive and technology based advanced knowledge  economy through  innovation, along with the bank’s strategy to keep pace with the latest global digital banking technologies.
