FIDELITY BANK and the newest member of its family, ProCredit, recently feted children of New Life Orphanage in Nungua and the Home for Women and Children (HOMWAC) in the Mallam Atta market.
The delegation of about 30 staff, led by the Director, Financial Inclusion and Corporate Social Responsibility, Dr William Derban, spent four hours with the children eating delicious food and delectable desserts, dancing to good tunes, chatting and playing games.
The highlight of the occasion was the presentation of assorted food items, drinks, toys and learning aids, clothing and a host of other goodies to the children.
Commenting on the gesture, Dr Derban emphasized that the donations were coming from the generosity of Fidelity and ProCredit staff whose overarching theme remains ‘Building Lives through Finance’.
‘Our colleague engagement programme, Charity@Work, seeks to galvanise Fidelity Bank staff nationwide on a cause. A core part of Fidelity’s culture is supporting others who are in need.’
Dr Derban hinted that this gesture was just a fraction of what Fidelity had in store for the country this year.
Thanking the Fidelity team, Cephas Afotey, Founder and President of New Life Orphanage, Nungua, heaped the blessings of God upon the institution saying, ‘the most important thing is that my children are happy and may Fidelity continue to grow from grace to grace.’
He added that the institution was dependent on the support of private and individual donors and encouraged others to emulate Fidelity.
Madam Alberta Adaglo, the proprietor of HOMWAC, said she was happy to receive the items on behalf of the children of ‘kayayei’ who worked in the market and use the centre.
