Staff of the bank presents a dummy cheque to Rev Kofi Owusu Afriyie
Heritage Bank Limited has presented a cheque for GH¢2,000 to the King Jesus Charity Home at Boadi in Kumasi as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Staff from the bank’s Suame and Adum branches in Kumasi visited the orphans at the home, which is also a school.
They gave a variety of goodies to the children and served as guest-tutors and supervisors for the day.
The delegation, comprising about 20 staff, led by the Manager of the Suame Branch, Titus Beyuoh, engaged the children in a mini-party, talent display and indoor games.
They also educated them on good hygiene and career choices.
The climax was the presentation of assorted food items, drinks, clothes, toiletries and others to the children.
In addition to these, the bank provided a cash token to the home.
Rev Kofi Owusu Afriyie, the Founder and President of King Jesus Charity Home, Nungua, who thanked the Heritage Bank team, heaped praises on the institution, saying, “Your gesture has empowered our spirit to continue aiding and training more needy children. May the Lord Almighty continue to bless all your undertakings and grant you divine success.”
Commenting on this gesture, Titus Beyuoh stated that the habit of identifying the needy and vulnerable in society and providing sustainable support initiatives to uplift them is an intrinsic aspect of the corporate culture at Heritage Bank.
“Our mantra: ‘It’s Possible’ isn’t only relevant to our clients and other business interests. At Heritage Bank, beyond the business of banking, we believe that we are primarily in the business of making dreams come true for the needy and vulnerable within the communities that we serve. This act of support for the King Jesus Charity Home is just one of many community-centred initiatives that the bank will be rolling out across the country in the ensuing days.”
It would be recalled that Managing Director of Heritage Bank Limited, Patrick Fiscian, recently told members of the media that the bank is on course to meeting the BoG’s minimum capital requirement ahead of the December 31 deadline.
Within a year of operations, the bank has established seven branches, with four in Accra (Airport City, East Legon, Dzorwulu, Abbossey Okai), two in Kumasi (Adum and Suame-Magazine) and one in Tema.
All branches of the bank offer extended banking services from 8:30am to 6:00pm throughout the working week.
The bank also offers digital banking platforms and consumer asset finance loan, as well as a host of other bespoke products.
