Fidelity Bank has announced plans to execute a number of social impact projects as part of activities marking its 15th anniversary celebration.
The bank said in a statement that the year-long celebration would focus on “giving back to society” in recognition of the support it had garnered from its customers and partners thus far.
Fidelity Bank was licensed on October 6, 2006 and has since grown to become one of the prominent and thriving brands in the Ghanaian financial services industry.
Announcing the impending anniversary celebrations in a special message of appreciation to the bank’s stakeholders, Mr Edward Effah, Board Chairman and Founder of the Bank, expressed profound gratitude to the Bank’s customers, staff, and stakeholders for contributing to its success.
“I want to assure everyone that Fidelity Bank will keep striving to provide value to all our stakeholders and we will continue to contribute towards the development of the banking industry as well as the economy of Ghana,” he said.
In a separate message, Mr Julian Opuni, the Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, said: “We have chosen to celebrate this momentous anniversary by giving back to you, to society and to the nation as a whole.”
He said the Bank would, in the coming month, launch a variety of social impact initiatives to add on to the numerous projects it had executed.
Outlining some of Bank’s social interventions thus far, the statement said the Bank recently supported the construction of the Ghana Infectious Disease Centre with a donation of GH¢1,000,000.00.
It said the Bank had also launched a Malaria Prevention Fundraising programme, supported the launch of the Korle-Bu Critical Care Fund, and also sponsored training programmes for disabled persons.
“The Bank also partnered with development-oriented NGOs, including USAID, Financial Sector Deepening Africa, GIZ, Solidaridad and SNV, to impact rural lives with financial services and to provide valuable medical guidance and treatment in the areas of mental health, tuberculosis, HIV, family planning, hypertension and diabetes, among others,” it added.
