BML’s Community Fund projects completed in Th. Kinbidhoo, N. Landhoo


Bank of Maldives on Thursday announced the successful completion of projects in Thaa Atoll Kinbidhoo and Noonu Atoll Landhoo as part of its Community Fund.

Under the project, a picnic area was developed in Th. Kinbidhoo. BML said the space will be utilized by residents and students of Kinbidhoo School, and is equipped with huts, traditional joali, wooden benches, BBQ areas and an outdoor shower.

The project was proposed by Aishath Sama from Kinbidhoo who commented about the lack of a “proper beach” in the island, residents usually travel to nearby islands for picnic or recreational activities, and with the development of the area, the residents now have a space for everyone to enjoy
