Raiffeisenbank staff throughout Russia tied white ribbons on their shirts in support of disabled people on International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
ZAO Raiffeisenbank understands the social responsibility of business to society. Traditionally one of the main activities of the bank in the field of charity is to help people of all ages with disabilities.
By engaging in this action, the bank’s team stressed that Russian people with disabilities, even confined within their families and flats, are not alone. We understand that the moral support needed for this category of people is no less necessary than material support.
