Fidelity Bank Ghana Limited has donated 500 dustbins to support the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly’s ‘Keep the City Clean and Green’ Project.
The bank said the initiative was geared towards making Kumasi clean and green.
It was also to ensure the wellbeing of residents of Kumasi.
At a brief ceremony in Kumasi, Deputy Managing Director, Julian Kingsley Opuni stated, “We, at Fidelity Bank, are not only interested in the financial wellbeing of our customers but also their physical wellbeing. We believe in the vision of the KMA to make Kumasi clean and green, hence our support for this sanitation project.”
“We believe these 500 dustbins will significantly help in reducing insanitary conditions in the Kumasi Metropolis. Fidelity Bank is also open to collaborate more with the KMA in other areas of development,” he added.
Fidelity Bank is well-known for its contributions to community projects through initiatives such as donation towards the construction of the new maternity block for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
In the past, the bank has organized several financial literacy programmes for students in tertiary institutions to empower them to make sound financial decisions.
Additionally, Fidelity Bank, in partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and SNV Netherlands Development Organization, supports deprived farming communities in the northern part of Ghana through education on the essence of savings.
Farmers, who achieve their savings target, are rewarded with fertilizers, weedicides and mobile phones.
So far, 679 farmers have undergone training and over 380 farmers have been rewarded.
