Intigral, a provider of digital entertainment, sports and related solutions in the Middle East and North Africa, participated in the recent Tamkeen Forum, organized by the Ministry of Labor and Social Development and sponsored by Minister of Labor Ahmad bin Salman Al-Rajhi. The event took place on Sept. 17-18 in the Sultana Hall at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Intigral’s participation comes in line with its commitment toward supporting and empowering Saudi youth within the job market and supports the economic reform program established by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as part of Saudi Vision 2030.

The forum aimed to gather companies that offer opportunities to social security beneficiaries, in addition to identifying their qualifications and providing them with appropriate work opportunities. This will in turn support the Saudi job market and transform it from a culture of dependency to independence to develop proactive generations that will contribute toward achieving the targets of the National Transformation Program 2020.

Intigral’s participation was highlighted through a dedicated pavilion where it outlined its role in supporting Saudi talents through a plethora of programs. Moreover, the forum presented 4,000 job opportunities from 50 companies, in addition to 32 workshops and 120 career guidance sessions.


Bupa Arabia supports the underprivileged & orphans

Bupa Arabia supports the underprivileged & orphans

Bupa Arabia for Cooperative Insurance has partnered with the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development to distribute 3,000 food baskets among underprivileged families, which are registered with the ministry’s Social Welfare and Family Welfare Agency. The initiative comes in line with the spirit of Ramadan, a month of giving, and in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This year, orphans who are covered under Bupa Arabia’s free health insurance program will help in preparing and distributing the baskets to inculcate a sense of giving among them.

Dr. Abdullah Al-Wahaibi, undersecretary at the Social Welfare and Family Welfare Agency, hailed Bupa Arabia’s move to involve orphans in preparing and distributing baskets under the supervision of the agency, saying: “This is a caring gesture from Bupa Arabia, and it promotes a sense of belonging among orphans while cultivating the principles of giving, communication and closeness between them and society.”

He added that the initiative supports what the company has been offering orphans for years. More than 2,600 orphans, living in more than 47 homes across the Kingdom, benefit from Bupa Arabia’s free health insurance program. The program includes divorced orphans and widows who live with their children in social care homes.

Loay Hisham Nazer, chairman of Bupa Arabia, said: “The orphans will be joining hands to assemble and distribute baskets to the families in an attempt to get a sense of the pride of giving during the holy month. We’ve also extended this to our employees, who collectively prepared 411 food baskets. We hope that we make a real and positive impact through this initiative.”

Bupa Arabia was the first company to offer free health insurance for residents of “Dar Al-Rafeef” in 2011. Three years later, in 2014, the program expanded to cover all orphans residing in shelters supervised by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.

“We believe that in order to play a proactive role in society, we need to provide more than just health insurance; we should aim to become the health care partner for every orphan in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, we would like them to know that we are always by their side,” Nazer said, adding that the orphans receive special treatment and the same services that are given to some VIP clients.

The free health insurance program offers a range of quality services, including a designated hotline to receive calls and provide immediate assistance. Bupa Arabia also developed an integrated program that enables doctors to visit beneficiaries periodically for checkups, and regularly organizes health education workshops to raise awareness. The program is approved by the Cooperative Health Insurance Council and covers all treatments, including plastic surgery, dermatology, and even cases that are not covered by regular health insurance.
