Prudential Bank Limited has donated GH¢200,000 to the COVID-19 National Trust Fund in Accra.
This is in addition to earlier donations made by the indigenous bank to the Ghana Association of Bankers, Ghana Tourism Authority, Ghana Immigration Service, and Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at a short ceremony at Jubilee House, the Managing Director of Prudential Bank, Mr. John K. Addo, said the donation is to complement government’s efforts to combat the pandemic, as the fight against the disease requires the collective effort of the entire citizenry.
Mr. Addo was accompanied by the board chairperson of the bank, and said it is necessary to minimise negative impacts of the disease on livelihoods, businesses and the economy as a whole; hence the bank’s decision to support this cause.
Archbishop Justice Ofei Akrofi, a member of the Board of Trustees for the COVID-19 Trust Fund who received the donation, thanked the bank for its kind gesture.
He also used the opportunity to appeal for other corporate institutions to support the Fund, saying that success for the fight is to the benefit of all.
