Y. K. Almoayyed & Sons is in the forefront of corporate social responsibility (CSR) through its history of philanthropic activities. From his earliest days, Yousuf Khalil Almoayyed involved himself in charitable activities and contributed in the establishment of the Bahrain Red Crescent Society, the Rotary Club of Manama and the Bahrain Committee for Arab Support. In 1987, he personally financed the construction of the Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre in memory of his late son Mohammed. In December 2010, BD1 million was donated to the Kidney Dialysis Unit at Salmaniya Hospaital by the heirs of the late Yousuf Khalil Almoayyed.

With the continuation of Yousuf Almoayyed’s vision of a prosperous Bahraini society, Y. K. Almoayyed & Sons introduces EDMAJ, an initiative that emphasizes both Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Engagement.
