ADB staff donate to Abokobi Health Centre


Staff of the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) PLC have donated GH¢20,000 to the Abokokobi Health Centre as part of activities to mark this year’s Father’s Day celebration.

In making the presentation, General Manager in charge of Retail Banking, Mr. Alfred Amo-Mensah who led the team of staff said: “As part of activities to celebrate this year’s Father’s Day, staff of ADB – particularly the men – decided to make voluntary contributions for a donation to the Abokobi Health Centre as a show of commitment to touching lives and positively impacting communities in different ways. The donation also complements the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities (ADB) as a whole,” he added.

Mr. Amo-Mensah stated that ADB staff recognise the Abokobi Health Centre’s role in health service delivery and ensuring the general well-being of people in the area. “We therefore believe that this little donation will go a long way toward supporting your operations, and also encouraging others to join in providing more assistance to the health centre,” he said

The donation was received by Administrator Madam Joyce Mawuse Adams on behalf of the Abokobi Health Centre. She thanked the staff of ADB for their kind gesture. “This donation will help reduce the health centre’s financial burden,” she said. “We are very grateful to you (the staff) and management of ADB for the support,” she added.

Madam Joyce Mawuse Adams also indicated that the Abokobi Health Centre is in need of more resources to help meet ever-increasing health service delivery needs of the community and its environs. “Running a healthcare centre is a big job, and there are always challenges to face and problems to solve,” she said.

“Our greatest strength however lies in our passion and commitment to saving lives, even with the limited resources and challenging working conditions. We will continue finding innovative ways to collaborate with corporate institutions and philanthropies to support operations of the health centre,” she further stated.

Madam Joyce Mawuse Adams and her team once again thanked ADB staff for their kind gesture and prayed for them and the bank as a whole.

The Agricultural Development Bank PLC and its staff continue to leverage events that touch lives and support the needy and communities through Corporate Social Responsibility activities. In 2021, the bank was acknowledged and awarded as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Company of the Year by the Ghana Business Awards.
