One Family Ambassador Bana Alabed visited Kuala Lumpur this week for the exciting launch of One Family Malaysia.
As the Headline Sponsor for the Maher Zain Live tour in Malaysia, CIMB Bank hosted a special Gala Dinner, on the eve of the opening concert in Kuala Lumpur, to celebrate the launch.
“We are delighted to launch One Family in Malaysia, and look working with the many partners and friends that have embraced our vision for a better world” said Sharif Banna, Chairman of One Family.
The next day, during his sell out concert in Kuala Lumpur, Maher took a short break to invite 8-year-old Bana to the stage to be cheered by an audience of 10,000 people, as she highlighted the humanitarian crisis in Syria and pleaded with everyone “not to forget the Syrian people.”
Bana was inspired to meet Dr. Wan Azizah, the first serving female Deputy Prime-Minister of Malaysia, and Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the Prime-Minister-in-waiting, who both attended the concert at the Axiata Arena.
