LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dahabshiil are extremely proud and honoured to be part of the Muslim News Awards for Excellence 2014 which took place last night at Grosvenor House, London. The Muslim News is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and the awards are an important celebration of Muslim talent and the contribution of the Muslim community to British Society.
In 2013, Dahabshiil was honoured to be the recipient of the Excellence for Enterprise award for its vital role in fostering social development and increasing financial stability in developing countries through remittance finance.
Last night, Mr Abdirashid Duale, CEO of the Dahabshiil Group, was proud to present the Fazlur Rahman Khan Award for Excellence in Engineering, Science and Technology to Dr Farid Khan for his outstanding contribution to technological innovation in the field of human health in the UK and the Developing World.
Mr Duale said:
“I am extremely proud and honoured to be part of the Muslim News Awards for Excellence. The awards are an important way to celebrate success and recognise the contribution of Muslims from all walks of life to British Society.
Dahabshiil has in the past been recognised for the contribution we have made to the communities that we serve and for supporting increased financial stability in Somalia. These principles remain at the heart of our business.
I was pleased to have the opportunity last night to raise the issues facing the Somali remittance industry directly with the Prime Minister himself and would like to thank the UK government for their ongoing commitment to find a solution which enables a safe and transparent remittance corridor to remain open with Somalia. This is vital service for the Muslim community in the UK and overseas.
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mo Farah on winning the Faezeh Hashemi Award for Excellence in Sport and to thank him for his continued support of Dahabshiil and the Save Remittance Giving campaign.”
