Fidelity to communities

The bank in 2015 also partnered the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to establish a critical Care Fund for the Intensive Care Unit to support less privileged patients in need of emergency and intensive care.
It donated a seed money of GHS50,000 for the project.
During the June 3 disaster in 2015, Fidelity also partnered Citi FM to support victims.
