Muscat November 03, 2013: Showcasing their ongoing drive towards raising awareness for road safety issues in the Sultanate, Bank Sohar organised a road safety responsiveness event, where the Traffic Village was inaugurated at Jalan Bani Bu Hassan.
Road Safety has been a core area of concern for the government as well as the private sector and Bank Sohar has joined hands with Oman Road Safety Association (ORSA) for a yearlong campaign to increase consciousness among the public about the significance of vigilance on the road. In line with the same, the Traffic Safety Village which has been travelling across locations was brought to Jalan Private School and was launched by the chief guest, H.E. Sheikh Hamed Bin Rashid Al Muqbali - Wali of Jalaan Bani Bu Hassan in the presence of Ms. Shaima Al Lawati, CEO of ORSA in addition to representatives of Bank Sohar’s Marketing department and number of VIPs.
Dr. Mohamed Abdulaziz Kalmoor, CEO of Bank Sohar commented, “Since the inception of our association with ORSA, the Bank has undertaken numerous initiatives across different Wilayats in the Sultanate to spread awareness about the significance of being vigilant on the road. The Safety Village showcased the risks of careless driving behavior which often pose the greatest danger on our roads. It was great to see that all the children from Jalan Private School were enthused about the cause and I would like to thank everyone involved in making this event a success.”
