Fidelity Bank Plc says it is continuously touching lives and impacting positively on communities through its Fidelity Helping Hands Project.
This, it said, was in line with its corporate social responsibility objective of helping the underprivileged in the society.
According a statement by the bank, the FHHP is an initiative that enables the employees to carry out corporate social responsibility interventions.
The bank stated that last week, refugees at Ogoja Refugee Camp in Cross River State benefited from the bank’s corporate humanitarian initiative.
It stated, “Staff of Fidelity Bank, UNICAL branch brought smiles to the faces of Internally Displaced Persons and refugees at the camp by donating relief materials and building a children’s playground.
“To achieve this, they partnered Community Humanitarian Emergency Backing Nigeria, a non-governmental humanitarian organisation created to respond to diverse humanitarian crises and provide humanitarian services.”
According to the statement, while speaking at the presentation ceremony and inauguration of the playground, the Country Director, COHEB Nig, Ugochi Ossai, commended the laudable effort of Fidelity Bank.
She noted that the bank had been an exceptional organisation making it a duty to positively impact on communities where it was doing business.
She urged other corporate and non-governmental organisations to emulate the pace-setting initiative of the bank.
