At iib, we believe in taking tangible steps towards a sustainable future, and what better occasion to do so than Earth Day!

In line with the theme for 2024: “Planet vs Plastics,” iib set out to do something unique, inclusive and actionable. On the 28th of April, in partnership with the team at Sounah Al Haya, iib organised an activity that truly represented the values and ideals we hope to foster in society. From refugee students to special needs children, the iib team led dozens of children on a neighbourhood clean-up drive around their schools. To witness children from all walks of life, work cheerfully and collectively to pick up over 30 bags of garbage and litter off their streets was especially heartwarming and inspiring for everyone involved.

This initiative marks yet another step forward in our sustainability goals at iib. Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword for us; it’s central to our promise and ethos. We firmly believe that by investing in initiatives like these, and empowering organisations like Sounah Al Haya, whose inclusionary approach reflects our own, we can create a brighter and more sustainable future for generations to come.

To all the students who participated, and to our partners at Sounah Al Haya, we’re so proud of what you accomplished and we celebrate you for playing your part in keeping our community clean and green. Your passion and dedication inspire us to keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Together, let’s continue to make a positive impact on our planet.

In partnership with Sounah-Alhaya, iib Djibouti embarked on a heartfelt endeavour to extend compassion and support to our community during the holy month of Ramadan. Recognising the challenges faced by many families during this time of celebration, our collaborative efforts were dedicated to easing their burdens and spreading joy throughout our community.

Our initiatives were xecuted with the utmost care and consideration for those in need. Central to our endeavours was the distribution of food bags, meticulously curated to provide essential sustenance to families experiencing hardship. These food bags were thoughtfully designed to encompass a variety of nutritious items, ensuring that recipients could focus on other activities as the basic need of food was provisioned for.

Our outreach efforts extended beyond mere material assistance. We sought to cultivate a sense of warmth and togetherness within our community, fostering an environment where individuals felt supported and valued. Through acts of kindness and solidarity, we aimed to uplift spirits and instil a sense of hope and optimism among those facing adversity.

At iib Djibouti, we firmly believe in the transformative power of collective action and the profound impact it can have on the lives of individuals and families in need. By uniting with our partners and stakeholders, we reaffirm our commitment to serving as a beacon of compassion and support within our community, particularly during moments of celebration and reflection such as Eid-ul-Adha.

As we reflect on the success of our initiatives and the countless lives touched by our efforts, we are inspired to continue our mission of making a positive difference in the world around us.

Working with Sounah-Alhaya and other charitable organisations, iib Djibouti reached out to the community to help ease the burden off Eid-ul-Adha. Activities were centred around the distribution of food bags to needy families to help with the sentiment of feasting after fasting. Children clothing was also distributed and a party was held for the children to celebrate the occasion. iib also made a donation to special need school for children.

The International Investment Bank (Djibouti) S.A. announced a customer donation matching commitment to support the COVID-19 government support fund. iib customers donated DJF 10 million which was equally matched by the Bank.

On 16 June 2020, iib Djibouti represented by Mr Raj Dussoye, Chief Executive Officer of iib (Djibouti) donated the total amount of DJF 20 million to the COVID-19 fund in the presence of officers from the Ministry of the Budget (Ministère du Budget, Djibouti). The donation was broadcasted on the national television, Radio Television of Djibouti (RTD). The donation is in support of the government’s effort in fighting COVID-19.

The Ministry of Economy and Finance, in charge of Industry has created within the Partial Credit Guarantee Fund of Djibouti (FGPCD) a new product called Exceptional Depreciable Cash Credit. This new product aims to allow bank financing exceptional for the benefit of companies whose cash flow was negatively impacted by the Covid-19 health crisis.

As you are aware, Djibouti is currently facing a difficult situation due to COVID 19 and the President of the Republic has called for solidarity from one and all to combat this calamity.

The confinement has become a necessary evil to combat the Virus. While we, ordinary citizens, are confined in the security of our homes, we have some warriors on the front line who are fighting day and night against this virus. They are sacrificing their health and their security as well as that of their families for us. They include doctors, nurses and other health professionals.

But let us not forget the officers of the police and the military, who are working, all round the clock, to ensure that we respect the rules of confinement. They are also directly exposed. Many of those warriors are clients of iib Bank.

iib Group, through iib Bank in djibouti, has thought of being besides those warriors of the frontline. We were made aware that they were needing water coolers for and Parasols. We quickly procured them with the help of our friends Said del Waiss of HALT Group and Mr Gamil. I wish to thank them both for their invaluable help.

Today, I had the honour of donating to the National Police 50 water coolers and 50 Parasols which will be used at road blocks. This is a symbolic gesture from iib Group and we will be coming with other measures to be besides the people of Djibouti during these difficult times.

iib Group and iib Bank in Djibouti remain fully committed to the development of Djibouti and remain united and in solidarity with the people of Djibouti.

I would like to thank my Team, Team iib, which put in lots of efforts for this project and other projects to come very soon, INCHA ALLAH.

iib is bringing its contributing stone………, and You?
