The 2020/2021 batch of National Service Personnel of Republic Bank donated assorted medical supplies to the Ashaiman Polyclinic in the spirit of social responsibility and volunteerism as underpinned in the Bank’s vision statement. The donation is in line with the Republic Bank’s commitment to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals on Good Health and Well-Being (SDG 3).
Presenting the items on behalf of the National Service Personnel, Mr. Tetteh Mamah, Head of Human Resources of Republic Bank said the Bank places high premium on social responsibility and community intervention thus, continually encouraging staff to voluntarily contribute to support community initiatives within their areas of operation.
“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 added that the kind gesture of the National Service Personnel also shows the power of help even with little resources.
He is hopeful this kind gesture will be a good precedent for future service personnel of the Bank and those who may find themselves within other institutions across the country.
Items donated included trolleys, screens, hand sanitizers, drip stands, liquid soap, bleach and tissue paper.
Dr. Mavis Amoako, Principal Medical Officer of the Ashaiman Polyclinic was full of appreciation to the Bank for the kind gesture and assured the Bank to put the items to good use.
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.
