UBA Ghana has put smiles on the faces of underprivileged people in Ashaiman and Ridge through its ‘Food Bank’ Initiative which distributed over 500 goodie bags.
The event was held on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, as part of the UBA Foundation activities which aim to make sustainable improvements in the lives of the needy and underprivileged in the communities in which the bank operates in the areas of education, economic empowerment, and special projects.
Commenting on the initiative, Henry Nii Dottey, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications at UBA Ghana said, “Christmas is a special time and the occasion should be seen as a season of giving and expressing love.
“We are deeply fulfilled that we have spread some holiday cheer to our brothers and sisters on the street who are less privileged in society through this gesture of giving. The smiles we see on their faces as they receive their goodie bags warm our hearts and we are happy to celebrate the season with them”.
Henry Nii Dottey also stated that the initiative is also a response to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals 1 and 2 which deals with No poverty and zero hunger. He added that the Bank will continue to do this in the coming years and also work with other partners to ensure that many lives are touched during Christmas.
Receiving their Christmas goodie bags, Kofi Amoah and Yahya Perley who are all residents of Ashaiman where the Bank recently opened a new Business Office said, “Thank you to UBA Ghana for thinking about us and feeding us. God bless you so much. We pray and look forward to seeing you again next year”
Other beneficiaries from Ashaiman and Ridge were also thankful to UBA Ghana for the warm and kind gesture.
