In these extremely challenging times, I would like to share our cordial support and camaraderie with you and your families. IIFC Group, the health and safety of our colleagues, clients, and the communities in which we operate is our number one priority. We have a 8-year legacy of responsible financial services and we are committed to doing all we can to keep everyone safe.
As governments around the world are implementing measures to contain this public health crisis, we have been taking strict precautions to protect our colleagues and clients while securing customer service. Our business is considered essential during times of crisis as we are part of the financial services, as well as a critical player in public health and hygiene.
Our branches around Afghanistan are fully operational and our services are secured. Furthermore, we have extensive contingency plans in place securing our services and ongoing operation.
We are following the advice of all governments and public health authorities, and proactively implementing a range of precautionary measures, from stringent sanitation and cleaning protocols, to workplace distancing, global temperature checks and a worldwide travel ban. To best protect those who must be at IIFC Group facility to carry out their work, the majority of our colleagues are working from home.
We are extremely proud of and grateful to our teams who come on site every day to ensure service continuity.
Our measures are aligned with World Health Organization guidelines and local health officials, and we continue to adjust our approach as necessary.
We will keep you informed as the situation evolves and thank you for your continued trust.
