The Liberia Bankers Association (LBA) has donated several food items and medical supply to the Group of 77 on Newport Street and the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home on 10th Street, Sinkor.The donation is part of the bank's social corporate responsibility to the community in observance of what it calls "Bankers Week". The week is being observed under the theme: "Rebuilding the Financial Sector Infrastructure".
Presenting the items on behalf of her colleagues yesterday, the Acting Managing Director/CEO of Global Bank, Madam Beatrice N. Dennis encouraged men and women with disability to stand firm and know that someone cares for them.
She said the banking sector would have done more than what it has done but sometimes there are obstacles preventing such a huge donation. Madam Dennis however expressed optimism that as time goes by; the bank would engage into bigger initiatives to assist the disable community.
The banking association presented 17 bags of rice, cartons of bathing soap, toiletries, and several gallons of Argo oil to each of the centers.
Receiving the items on behalf of Group of 77, the Program Officer of the group, Madam Constance T. Kennedy, lauded the banking institutions for the donation and assured them that the items will be used for its intended purpose. For her part, the Home Supervisor of the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home, Madam Georgia J. Robertson said the donation was not a surprise because she knows that banks in Liberia are always identifying with them.
