WEMA BANK STAFF DONATE TO SUPPORT COMMUNITIES AFFECTED BY COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Nigeria’s leading innovative Bank, Wema Bank Plc. has deepened its service to humanity as the bank’s staff made “salary for love” donations to help cushion the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
In line with our corporate social initiatives in the Bank, the “Salary for love” is a one-day basic salary donation which is a voluntary contribution by staff of Wema Bank to assist the Nigerian government and health workers in fighting the spread of the virus.
“As a Bank and a responsible organization, we recognize the need to support the government and citizens of the country at this period,” said MD/CEO of Wema Bank, Mr Ademola Adebise.
“The “Salary for love” donation will contribute to the cause in helping to fight and reduce the spread of the virus in Nigeria. It is a selfless cash donation from members of staff of Wema Bank PLC, and we are proud of everyone who contributed”
In a statement released by the bank, over four million naira has been raised and used in purchasing palliatives such as face masks, antiseptic soaps, foodstuff among others. The palliatives were shared to families in communities affected by the lockdown.
The bank also created a COVID-19 account to enable members of staff donate voluntarily towards the fight against the spread of the virus in Nigeria.
“Last month, we donated palliatives to state governments and communities, and this is something we will continue with the understanding that some of us have had to face harsher economic realities during this pandemic,” Mr Adebise added.
“We believe that our contribution will not only help curb the spread of the virus, it will also help soften the impact of the pandemic on Nigerians.”
Wema Bank remains committed to its responsibility in supporting communities where it operates, creating initiatives and partnering with platforms that work to build human and societal development.
