OCBC Al-Amin CEO hits KL streets to spread goodwill for Ramadhan - for the 12th year
The month of Ramadhan is back and OCBC Al-Amin Bank Berhad (OCBC Al-Amin) staff, led by its Chief Executive Officer Tuan Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik, took to the streets around Masjid Jamek to spread goodwill once again through the act of sharing.
Like in the eleven years before the pandemic struck last year, the staff of OCBC Al-Amin marked 1 Ramadhan with the symbolic gesture of offering bubur lambuk to their neighbours. This has remained a tradition since the Bank began operations in 2008.
People from all walks of life in surrounding areas of the Bank’s headquarters at Wisma Lee Rubber, Jalan Melaka, enjoyed the Ramadhan goodies and shared in the spirit of the fasting month.
“As we begin Ramadhan, we remember what has become ingrained as a tradition for us at OCBC Al-Amin; this is to share in solidarity and the spirit of togetherness and almsgiving by offering what we have to others. While we were unable to shake hands with our friends or even get close to them due to the strict standard operating procedures that are in place, we are pleased to have been able to do the next best thing, which is to ensure the meals reach them.
“I am pleased that we were able to distribute bubur lambuk to about 300 people from around our headquarters here near Masjid Jamek. A big thank you to our friends from Masjid Jamek who partnered with us in this effort. We hope the public will have a meaningful Ramadhan this year as we look forward to 1 Syawal in a month from now,” Tuan Syed Abdull Aziz said.
OCBC Al-Amin, among the top two foreign Islamic banks in Malaysia, has 9 branches nationwide and also offers its products and services through the 33 conventional OCBC Bank branches nationwide.
