In the Christian spirit of charitably giving to the poor, needy and the elderly, the Management of the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank on behalf of the Board and Staff on Wednesday, July 7, 2021, donated a large assortment of food items, suppositories and cash to residents of the King George VI Home in Grafton.
Managing Director, Mr.Abdulai Fidelis Turay said the donation which included cash for administrative support, 20 bags of rice, cooking oil, salt, adult diapers, digestive biscuit, Dettol, among others, was a symbol of the love SLCB has for the Home.
Head of Corporate Affairs Mr Leslie Bola Williams noted that the relationship between SLCB and the Home dates back to over a decade. He said that the donation was part of the Bank culture of giving back to the community in which it operates.
The Acting Administrative Officer of the Home appreciated the donation. She noted that the Home has had a healthy relationship with the bank for some time and has always been kind to them. She prayed for God Almighty to return many folds of what the Bank donated to the Home. However, she reminded the Bank that they have other challenges, such as the need for a borehole to supply the home with water.
She also spoke about completing the erecting of the right side of the perimeter wall to discourage land grabbers. She prayed for the staff of the bank and their families to be protected from the COVID-19 disease.
The SLCB Director of Business Development Mr. Moses CumbohSesay assured the Home that their needs had been heard.
Managing Director Mr.Turay said it would be addressed in the not too distant future. He stated that the small token to the Home came out of profits made and to show that SLCB is a friend who always cares for them. This is not our last visit, he said. â€œWe shall always be coming to you. He promised that SLCB will always remember them every year. He appealed to them to accept what was donated, adding that he was happy that almost the same faces that they saw last year were present and hope to see them again next year.
The program ended with a donation of the items to the Home by the SLCB Director of Audit Mrs.Olayinka Phillips.
