As part of its corporate social responsibility of giving back to society, Energy Commercial Bank has donated assorted food items to Foster Home Orphanage at Adenta- Frafraha in the Greater Accra region.
The food items included bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, noodles, canned tomatoes and fruit juices.
The move by the Bank is expected to support the management of the orphanage while helping with the overall development of the children.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Energy Commercial Bank, Christiana Olaoye said her outfit has over the years supported some orphanages and hospitals, and is always committed in fulfilling stakeholder demand by giving back to the society in which it operate.
According to her, “The chairman of the board, Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim is an educationist and has established schools in local communities in which he comes from, he encourages the companies within the group to support education and health…these are issues that are important to society. Since we establish our presence here, we refurbished the wing of the Children’s Hospital and donated some items.”
She noted that “Every year we take students from the University for Internship, about 50 of them for three months internship; those of them who have been successful with the internship are further given the opportunity to do national service with the Bank.”
She added that Energy Commercial Bank will continue to support society, adding the donation will be sown as a seed in the life of the children.
Abraham Kwaku Danso, a Director and Caretaker of the home commended Energy Commercial Bank for its support, urging other corporate institutions to emulate the kind gesture.
“We are very grateful for this kind of support. I’m proud to say that we have some of the children in universities and other tertiary institutions.”
Mr. Danso also prayed for success of the bank, adding, the bank will one day testify about his prayers.
