The 2020/2021 cohort of National Service Personnel at Republic Bank reached out to Ashaiman Polyclinic and donated a package comprising trolleys, screens, hand sanitizers, drip stands, soap, bleach and paper towel. The support for the Ashaiman Polyclinic reflects the spirit of social responsibility and volunteerism that undergirds the vision statement of Republic Bank and was is also consistent with the bank’s commitment to contribute to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (Goal#3: Good Health and Well-Being).
Mr. Tetteh Mamah, Head of Human Resources of Republic Bank officially handed over the donated package on the behalf of the National Service Personnel. Mr. Mamah commented that Republic Bank placed high high premium on social responsibility and community intervention and continually encouraged staff to voluntarily contribute to and support community initiatives within their areas of operation. Mr. Mamah said the kind gesture of the National Service Personnel showed the power of help even when it is advanced with limited resources.
“It was therefore heart-warming when the National Service Personnel came together to mobilize funds through various sources to purchase these assorted medical supplies on donation,” Mr. Mamah said. He hoped that the kind gesture would set a good precedent for future service personnel of the Republic Bank and other personal in other institutions across Ghana.
Dr. Mavis Amoako, Principal Medical Officer of the Ashaiman Polyclinic, received the gift package and expressed appreciation to the Bank for the kind gesture.
Republic Bank in 2020, welcomed Service Personnel as part of the mandatory National Service for tertiary school leavers. The personnel were assigned to various Departments and Branches of the Bank to acquire requisite skills needed for their development and to prepare them to face the corporate world especially experiences in Banking and other related fields.
