Staff of Stanbic Bank Ghana donated 200 bags of cement and a truck load of sand to support the completion of a project to provide residential facilities at Potter’s Village Children’s Home. When completed the project will help alleviate congestion in the children and youth shelter and orphanage. Speaking at the donation event, Mr. Richard Asare, Commercial Suite Manager at Stanbic Bank, said employees of the bank remain committed to supporting the wellbeing children in the orphanage.

During a previous visit to the orphanage, the staff team observed the dilapidated state of several of the facilities and decided to mobilize funds to help the orphanage evacuate some of the dilapidated structures. The Bank team were glad their contribution had been impactful and indicated their willingness to do more to continue supporting the orphanage to complete all its projects.

“As a bank that prioritises the wellbeing of Africa and its people, we are happy to partner with Institutions like yours to make possible the dreams of these future leaders, hence our slogan ‘It Can Be’. This month of love presents a perfect opportunity to show our love with these 200 bags of cement, one trip of sand and some basic provisions for the little ones”
