The National Investment Bank (NIB) has donated an amount of Thirty Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHS30,000.00) to cover the cost of surgery and medical expenses at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, Ridge for a Junior High School graduate, Miss Patience Addo. The 16-year-old who has been diagnosed of a spinal cord tumor needs urgent corrective surgery to restore her failing health. The donation forms part of NIB’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Charles Wordey who presented the cheque on behalf of the Bank reiterated NIB’s resolve to “continue providing support to the underprivileged in our society as this among other values are highly essential to the bank.” He therefore, entreated the bank’s customers to keep faith with NIB to enable it reach out a lot more to the needy.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of her daughter, Rose Biney expressed delight at the gesture saying, “hope was practically lost when almost everybody the family contacted turned their backs on us. We thought Patience would never get the money for the surgery but thanks to NIB, we now have hope.”
