FBNBank, a subsidiary of the First Bank of Nigeria Limited, has donated assorted food items and sanitary products to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital as part of its corporate social responsibility week celebration.
The bank said the decision to support the staff and inmates of the facility follows reports of the many challenges they face in accessing foodstuff due to low budgetary allocation.
The items donated included bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, assorted drinks and biscuits.
Other items are boxes of antiseptics and some toiletries.
The Head of Commercial Banking of FBNBank, William Amon- Neequaye, said “We heard in the news that the hospital had some needs, so management decided to do something to reduce the burden of the government and also reduce the plight of patients and staff. That was why we brought these items.”
He said the bank’s culture encouraged giving back to society, adding there will be more of such donations to needy organizations in future.
Receiving the donations on behalf of the hospital, the Deputy Director of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, Miss Beatrice Nyarko, expressed her profound gratitude to the team and assured them that the items would be used for the intended purposes.
