FBNBank Ghana Ltd., a subsidiary of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, has donated an amount of GH¢20,000 to support Rotary Ghana, the Ghana National Polio Plus Committee, and selected Rotary Clubs mostly in the Ashanti Region in the fight against Polio in Ghana.
This is to help Rotary and its partners roll out a polio immunization exercise for children between zero (0) months to infants of up to fifty-nine (59) months.
Even though Africa has now been declared polio-free, there remains work to be done to ensure polio stays out.
Making the presentation to mark the International Polio Day celebration in Kumasi, Managing Director of FBNBank Ghana, Victor Yaw Asante emphasized the bank’s commitment to promote the health and wellbeing of children.
‘‘FBNBank Ghana, a bank that continually strives for excellence, drives the financial industry through the offering of innovative solutions to our customers, opportunities for our employees and support the communities in which the bank operates finds it important to partner with Rotary International to tackle head-on, and eradicate Polio in Ghana and beyond.”
He said he is optimistic that the bank’s support to Rotary in the fight against polio will go a long way in changing the world and ensure that the gains achieved over the years are sustained.
Victor Yaw Asante urged Rotary and its partners not to relent in this fight against polio.
He commended the efforts of Rotary and its partners on the huge amount of work it has done to make Africa polio-free.
He underscored the need for all benevolent entities to join in supporting the fight against Polio.
“We hope by this gesture, other well-meaning players in corporate Ghana will also support the drive to completely eradicate Polio” he added.
