The Transaction Banking Team of Stanbic Bank Ghana has donated GHS 30,000 to the Gynecology and Maternity Ward of the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) Hospital.

The donation covered the medical bills of 15 new mothers who have remained at the hospital after childbirth due to financial challenges.

During the presentation of the cheque to the hospital, Kate Agamah, Head of Transaction Banking at Stanbic Bank, mentioned that the donation aligned perfectly with their commitment to giving back to the community.

She said, “At Stanbic Bank, we strongly, believe in leaving a positive impact in our community towards driving national growth and development. This gesture was born out of our desire to make a positive impact beyond our normal banking activities.

We are deeply aware of the interconnectedness of our society, and when we heard about the financial struggles faced by some of these new mothers, we felt compelled to lend a helping hand.”

She added, “Today, we are proud to have raised GHS 30,000 to assist 15 of these women. Knowing that they can now return home to their families fills our hearts with warmth and fulfilment. This act of kindness is just one example of our ongoing commitment to supporting our community and contributing to the growth and development of our beloved country.”

Dr. Akua Afriyie Gyimah-Asante, the medical superintendent of LEKMA Hospital, expressed profound gratitude for the donation, emphasizing its timeliness and impact. “We are extremely grateful to the Transaction Banking Team at Stanbic Bank for this remarkable act of generosity. This gesture has made a significant difference in the lives of these women, enabling them to reunite with their families and move forward with their lives. We appreciate their continuous support and encourage them to keep up the good work,” she said.

Recipients of the donation also shared their heartfelt appreciation, expressing how the support had positively impacted their lives. One of the new mothers who shared her excitement said, “This period has been incredibly challenging for us. Being unable to settle our medical bills meant we couldn’t leave the hospital after giving birth. Thanks to Stanbic Bank’s kindness, I can finally return home with my baby and be with my family. This donation means the world to us, and we are truly overwhelmed by this act of kindness. May God continue to bless the team at Stanbic Bank for their thoughtfulness.”

Stanbic Bank Ghana has consistently demonstrated its commitment to making a positive difference in various communities across the country. Last year, a team from Stanbic Investment Management Services (SIMS) donated vital hospital equipment to the Neonatal Unit of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital in the Central Region, further exemplifying the bank’s dedication to supporting healthcare initiatives.
