First Bank of Nigeria (FBN) Limited and its subsidiaries, have initiated a fund-raising drive across its staff as part of the FirstBank Employee Volunteering Scheme, to provide humanitarian service to the victims of the mudslides and floods that devastated parts of Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown.

The initiative which is part of its commitment to drive the sustainable development of the communities in which it does business, will see staff members collectively render succour and hope to the needy and the funds raised will complement the bank’s corporate donation to the victims of the disaster.

The bank has also implored its customers and members of the public to join in the cause of providing succour to victims of this tragedy.

A special donations account has been set up and staff, customers and members of the public can pay directly into the account: FBN CSR Donations - 2032381764.

The MD/CEO of First Bank of Nigeria Limited and Subsidiaries, Adesola Adeduntan, said it will continue to uphold the citizenship approach which includes considering the needs of its stakeholders and working to meet those needs in line with its corporate responsibility and sustainability strategy.
