The Village of Hope Orphanage benefited from a ¢20,000 contribution to their efforts towards the education of some of the Home’s wards.
The Lifeline for Childhood Cancer Ghana Foundation received ¢10,000 as the Bank’s contribution towards its efforts to make available medical care to children with cancer.

The Ghana Police also received a facelift to the office of the Rapid Deployment Unit from the Bank which is valued at ¢10,000.
FBNBank’s CR&S Week is commemorated together with its parent, FirstBank of Nigeria Limited and across all its subsidiary countries.
This year, the celebrations were under the theme, “Kindness: A Way of Life.” The Week also provides staff with an opportunity to show compassion and kindness by offering their time and resources in support of defined causes.
Commenting on the Bank’s CR&S efforts, FBNBank’s Managing Director and Chief Executive, Victor Yaw Asante, said, “This year, we look forward, together with our people, to demonstrate that in all things we put our stakeholders first, be it business or community activities.
“This will be achieved by supporting causes which make an impact in the lives of people, causes which resonate with all of us; from deprived children to support for institutions like schools and public service organisations through to national sports.
“During the CR&S Week and after, our actions would give tangibility to the ethos of the FBNBank brand and would also showcase our contribution to our communities and FBNBank’s responsibility as a good corporate citizen of Ghana. In all these, our staff will be offering their time and resources in support of our chosen causes. Together we will be delivering on our promise of putting our stakeholders first.
“This is evidence of the fact that at FBNBank our actions are driven by our brand. We are, therefore, as a matter of habit, enjoined to put our stakeholders, including our customers and communities first by attending to their needs and generally delivering value to them. It is our DNA.”
The cheques for the donations were received on behalf of the beneficiary institutions by their representatives.
These included Harrison Sasu, Director, Finance and Administration, Ministry of Youth and Sports who received the cheque for the Ghana Black Stars from Victor Yaw Asante supported by Mohammed Ozamah, Chief Risk Officer and Semiu Lamidi, Chief Financial Officer all of FBNBank.
