On behalf of ARC, Executive Director, Ms Zenysha Zaki accepted the cheque presented by General Manager, Mr Mohamed Haanee, at an event held at Color Bank. Speaking at the event, Ms Zaki highlighted that the funds will be utilized for ARC’s HOPE Campaign against Child Abuse, under which awareness raising activities are conducted in Male’ and the atolls, targeting children, parents and teachers.
