Fidelity Bank Plc says it is touching lives and impacting positively on communities, with its Fidelity Helping Hands Project, an initiative that enables the bank and its staff to carry out corporate social responsibility interventions.
It said staff members donated hospital equipment and renovated a maternity and child welfare clinic in Kofaran, Bauchi State.
The renovated health centre was unveiled by the bank’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, in a programme that attracted people from the host communities and environs.
Okonkwo, who was represented by the Regional Bank Head, North-East, Fidelity Bank, Dr. Musa Tarimbuka, noted that the bank took great pride in entrenching the culture of true and responsible citizenship among its staff.
He said government alone could not solve all of societal problems and called on private sector organisations and corporate bodies to lend their support to government, particularly as it relates to the provision of basic infrastructure and social amenities.
“Giving is a culture at Fidelity Bank and we will continue to encourage this. Under the FHHP initiative, the bank matches 100 percent whatever amount that is contributed by staff to fund CSR projects of their choices. This project was funded by the combined contributions of individual staff members of Bauchi main branch of Fidelity Bank” he stated.
