Bank, employees lift Bauchi Community with CSR project
Fidelity Bank Plc has sustained its efforts at touching lives and impacting communities with its Fidelity Helping Hands Project (FHHP)- its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) interventions.
A community in Northeast benefit from the bank’s corporate philanthropy initiative last week, when its employees donated hospital equipment and renovated a maternity and child welfare clinic in Kofaran, Bauchi State.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Nnamdi Okonkwo, unveiled the renovated health centre in a ceremony that attracted people from the host communities and environs.
Okonkwo, who was represented by the bank’s Regional Head, Northeast, Musa Tarimbuka, noted that it gives priority to entrenching the culture of true and responsible citizenship among its staff.
He said government alone could not solve all of societal problems and called on private sector organisations and corporate bodies to support government, particularly as it relates to the provision of basic infrastructure and social amenities.
“Giving is a culture at Fidelity Bank and we will continue to encourage this. Under the FHHP initiative, the bank matches 100 per cent whatever amount contributed by staff to fund CSR projects of their choice. This project was funded from contributions of individual staff members of Bauchi Main Branch of the bank,” he stated.
