As part of its Fidelity Helping Hands Programme (FHHP) initiative, Fidelity Bank has donated borehole, structural renovation and furnishing, various food and sanitary wares to St. Vincent de Paul/The Child Special School, Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
The Child Special School, an institution under the Catholic Diocese of Port Harcourt, presently caters for 30 boys and 34 girls from ages 5 – 32, intellectual impaired by learning disabilities and unable to benefit from normal education system.
Daniel Okorie, Divisional Head, Internal Control, Fidelity Bank, said the bank is committed in impacting the lives of people of its host communities nationwide because of its believe that corporate success is tied to the well being everyone in the operating environment.
He said, “It is in recognition of the needs of the school that we decided to carry out this Corporate Social Responsibility under our FHHP.
“With FHHP, staff across our business locations identify projects that impact their immediate community and raise funds to execute them. The bank’s management thereafter matches this contribution with an equal amount and disburses it for the selected project.”
“To the beneficiaries – students and teachers of this institution, I urge you to put the donated facilities to good use, maintain them always so it also ministers to the needs of many more students long after you’ve graduated from this institution.”
