The Heritage Bank Plc. has said it plans to adopt the Cerebral Palsy Centre in Surulere, Lagos, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR). This was recealed at the presentation of a shuttle bus to the centre.
The bank stressed that it was important to show commitment towards the well-being of the physically challenged children in the society.
Presenting the keys of the vehicle to the management of the centre, a senior staff member of the bank, Davidson Regha, said they were delighted to be part of the life-saving efforts of the centre, adding that every child deserves care, irrespective of his or her condition.
“We are committed as a bank and we would see how we can adopt the centre as one of our corporate social responsibilities to the society.”
“We believe that when people are small, we take them from the infancy level to be able to grow them from when they go through education, when they start working, get married and begin to create wealth.
“The culture of Heritage Bank is creating and transmission of wealth and that can only be achieved after identifying people, regardless of their social class or status,” he said.
Expressing her gratitude, founder of the centre, Nonye Nweke, said: “We appreciate this landmark donation by Heritage Bank to enhance our operations. May God reward you abundantly, and we pray that your efforts aimed at consolidating your presence in the financial industry will succeed beyond imagination. This is a timely and timeless gift.”
However, Nweke said one of the challenges of the centre was funding.
The Cerebral Palsy Centre in Surulere, Lagos, offers information, counselling, therapies, respite and support to children and families who are victims of different degrees of cerebral health challenges.
