01 Aug, 2017
Arab Bank and the Jordan Air Ambulance Center have renewed their cooperation agreement for a second consecutive year. The aim of the agreement is to support the Center in achieving its goal of raising the standard of medical services available in the Kingdom. The renewal of the agreement for a second year highlights Arab Bank’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.
Arab Bank will continue to support the Jordan Air Ambulance Center in all its services, including moving injured persons aerially from remote locations to specialized medical centers, through search and rescue missions using helicopters. This will ensure better treatment in emergency situations.
Mr. Tareq Haj Hasan, Senior Vice President and Head of Branding at Arab Bank stated: “The renewal of this agreement comes as part of Arab Bank’s corporate social responsibility and reflects its belief in JAAC’s mission and the special role it plays in medical air evacuation for emergency cases in remote areas. This humanitarian mission was manifested through the several critical cases which the center handled successfully last year.”
Rami Amoush JAAC, CEO expressed his appreciation for the private sector support of humanitarian centers which will result in widening the base of those who have access to these medical services. He added: “We are proud of our relationship with a leading institution such as Arab Bank. This cooperation is an example of a successful corporate social responsibility program. It also embodies the constructive partnerships built with the private sector in order to provide our citizens with access to life-saving medical services.”
The Jordan Air Ambulance Center was launched in 2014 by a Royal directive, with a trained and professional crew, and two helicopters fully equipped and capable of covering the entire Kingdom. This service ensures that Jordanians and residents have access to air-lifting in case of emergencies 24 hours a day, all week long; summarized by JAAC’s slogan “On a Mission to Save Lives”. Over the past two years, JAAC has saved the lives of more than sixty people, thanks to its ability to provide comprehensive pre-hospital emergency and critical care swiftly to those in need.
