Gulf Bank announced on 10 August 2014 that it will be the Platinum sponsor of the 26th Memorial Journey for Pearl Diving. The journey, which begins from the 14 - 21 August, is organized each year by the Committee of the Marine Heritage of the Kuwait Sea Sport Club, under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Amir of Kuwait.
During the yearly memorial journey, young participants are reminded of the difficulties Kuwaiti sailors faced before oil had been discovered, along with the traditions their ancestors developed during these times.
The young divers will revisit the hardships faced by Kuwait’s forefathers and celebrate the values instilled within them from their sacrifices. Values such as patience, cooperation, self-reliance and having faith in God that holds true to this day.
The Bank supports and emphasizes the true Kuwaiti identity and the importance of the Kuwaiti traditions and customs, through sponsoring such events.
