INVESTBANK, the leading bank in Jordan in providing pioneering financial solutions sponsored a fundraising dinner in support of Gift of Life Amman (GOLA) on March 5th at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman.

GOLA is a Jordanian charitable society founded in 2006 by a group of Jordanians inspired by Gift of Life International, which facilitates open-heart surgeries for underprivileged children in Jordan with congenital heart defects.

Speaking at the fundraising dinner, INVESTBANK CEO Muntaser Dawwas said, “We are very pleased to support GOLA in its mission to carry out open-heart surgeries for underprivileged children across Jordan. The GOLA initiative’s work has touched hearts across the Middle East and we encourage others join us in supporting the continuation of this cycle of hope and healing throughout Jordan and the region. “

GOLA President, Nael Msharbash, expressed his appreciation for INVESTBANK’s generous support for Gift of Life Amman that will facilitate its implementation of new open-heart surgeries for disadvantaged children in the coming year across Jordan.

The GOLA initiative utilises international, highly qualified medical teams from Jordan and the USA. GOLA has helped in saving 468 children in 2018, of which over 168 cases were operated on from 2016 to 2018. Gift of Life Amman has been providing hope to Middle Eastern children with heart disease since 2006. Over the past thirteen years, Gift of Life Amman has partnered with Gift of Life Indiana, Riley Children’s Hospital, Chain of Hope UK cofounder Professor Magdi Yacoub and Al Khalidi Medical Center in Amman to provide hope to hundreds of children from Jordan and throughout the Middle East.
