Management and Staff of Zenith Bank raised GHS34,000 to support two-year-old Mabel Adjoa Koomson who was diagnosed with Atrioventricular Septal Defect, a condition which creates holes between the chambers of the right and left sides of the heart and poor formation of the valves that control the flow of blood between the chambers.

Doctors recommended a surgical procedure in India to save Mabel’s life. Her parents however were unable to raise the total cost of funds needed for the operation. So staff of Zenith Bank stepped in and mobilized personal donations to enable Mabel get the life-saving surgery she needs.

Mrs. Chidinma Braye-Yankee, Head of Corporate Affairs and Service Delivery at Zenith Bank , expressed appreciation to Management and staff of the Bank for their generosity and swift responsiveness to save the life of Mabel. She described their kind gesture as a true reflection of employees commitment to the bank’s CSR commitments to give back to society in the communities where the bank operates.

Ms. Rebecca Mills, mother of little Mabel, was surprised when she got a call informing her of the support underway by the staff of Zenith. She explained that she had been “moving from place to place in search of financial assistance” over the past two years. Ms. Mills was immensely grateful to management and staff of the bank for their act of kindness.
