Bank Muscat celebrates Qaranqasho with children

MUSCAT: Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate, in line with its vision ’To serve you better, everyday’ and commitment to partnership in promoting community activities, joined children for Qaranqasho celebrations across Oman as part of its month-long ‘Ramadhan Al Khair’ programmes.
The bank organised a grand Qaranqasho celebration in the Wilayat of Rustaq where children turned out in large numbers and enjoyed the night singing Qaranqasho.
The bank employees joined the celebrations organised at Bait Al Gharbi Museum in Al Qasra Village and presented gifts and sweets to the children.
The bank supported Qaranqasho celebrations organised by Muscat Municipality at Muscat Grand Mall. The celebrations included a variety of exciting activities and games in which the bank presented attractive gifts to the children. The bank also joined Qaranqasho celebrations organised at Avenues Mall and Barka Mall and presented gifts and sweets to the large turn-out of children. The bank utilised the opportunity to highlight al Mazyona children’s savings account.
The traditional Qaranqasho celebration held on the night before the 15th day of the Holy Month of Ramadhan is aimed at rewarding children for successfully fasting during the first half of the month and encouraging them to continue through the second half. Dressed in traditional costumes, children visit their neighbourhood homes singing Qaranqasho songs and collect sweets. The celebrations help children develop community bonding.
