Mahmood Al-Yousif assumes the presidency of the Rotary Club of Adliya

Posted on

Believing in rendering services to the community, Mahmood Al-Yousif became a Rotarian in 2007 through his introduction to the Rotary Club of Adliya, the youngest Rotary club in Bahrain with an honorable roll of achievements throughout its young history. The club has raised approximately BD300,000 (US$800k) the vast majority of which has gone directly into helping the local community.

Rotary Clubs around the world elect a new president every Rotary year, which runs from July 1st through to June 30th.

This year, Mahmood Al-Yousif, the founder and CEO of Gulf Broadcast, has the privilege and honour to serve as the Rotary Club of Adliya’s president. He and his board have already discussed various events which will be launched during the year to help raise necessary funds for the projects the Club will support.

Chief amongst these projects is the “Gift of Life – Bahrain” an initiative to create a diagnosis and treatment centre within the Salmaniya Medical Centre – the main health care institution in Bahrain – specifically designed to care for children with congenital cardiovascular defects.

Should you wish to contribute time, effort or money to this cause, please do contact Mahmood who will be happy to provide you with the information you require.

The club aims to raise BD100,000 to not only equip the centre, but also to train a doctor and some nurses in necessary techniques to help those affected children.

Together, we can make a difference.

    Even if I don’t know that many Bahrainis, I can’t think of a better person for a role like this one.

    Continued success my friend.
