Consistent with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives, Fidelity Bank Plc has handed over a 50-bed capacity isolation centre at Ekwulobia General Hospital to the Anambra State Government. Equipped with medical equipment and other state-of-the-art facilities, the bank on Saturday donated the isolation centre to assist the Willie Obiano-led administration in the fight against the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Speaking at the handover ceremony on Saturday, Regional Bank Head (RBH), Awka, Fidelity Bank, Henry Asiegbu, pointed out that the gesture was part of the bank’s CSR policy anchored on a commitment to enhancing the lives and wellbeing communities where the bank operates.
“The government and people of Anambra State have been very supportive of Fidelity Bank. It was therefore expedient that we rose to the occasion to fund this centre for the benefit of the people of Ndi-Anambra and Nigeria,” said Asiegbu.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 in Nigeria, Asiegbu noted that the bank had remained in the forefront of galvanising requisite resources to support governments’ response to the Coronavirus pandemic as exemplified by monetary donations to other State governments including Plateau State, Kebbi State, Benue State, Kano State, amongst others. “This is in spite of our contributions to the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID)” he said.
According to him corporate philanthropy and social giving are at the core of the bank’s philosophy and outlook because the bank believes that organisations and the societies where they do business are in a symbiotic relationship.
In his remarks, the Governor of Anambra State, Obiano said the facility was to ensure that Covid-19 patients in the State received first-rate medical treatment. Obiano, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr Nkem Okeke, said though the number of COVID-19 cases in Anambra remained minimal, the facility was necessary to ensure the state’s readiness for any eventuality.
Okeke also thanked the bank for its laudable contributions to the growth and development of Anambra State. Speaking in the same vein, Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala, said the 50-bed capacity Isolation Center had the capacity to effectively cater to the needs of patients. Okpala commended the bank for the gesture, describing it as a demonstration of good neighbourliness. He said the facility is equipped with oxygen concentrators, mobilizers and other machines that will help the fight against COVID-19.
