Manama, Apr. 1 (BNA): Northern Governor, Ali bin Al-Shaikh Abdul Hussain Al-Asfoor, has affirmed that charity and humanitarian work is one of the characteristic features of the Bahraini society. He paid tribute to His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa as a role model in humanitarian and charity work through his honorary presidency of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF).
The Northern Governor was speaking during the governorate’s distribution of Ramadan baskets as part of a custom followed over the past years marking the advent of the Holy Month of Ramadan and as an extension of the national campaign “Fina Khair”, in support of the initiative of HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Representative of HM the King for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs and RHF Board of Trustees Chairman.
