On Saturday 25th June, part of our ABC Bank team visited Kayole Children’s Home to deliver story books. The children were really excited to get so many storybooks that will keep them occupied with something constructive while they are home due to the Corona pandemic. It was a fun-filled day as the kids had fun and interacted with the Bank staff.
Merab Kivuti is the definition of beating the odds. Growing up in Kayole Children’s Home did not deter her from pursuing her dreams. She did not allow her circumstances to determine her destiny. She studied hard, passed her KCSE, and was admitted to Moi University. ABC Bank sponsored her with an education scholarship and she is now in her first year studying Tourism.
With the Universities closed due to the Corona pandemic, classes are now online for students. Merab needed a laptop to keep up with the classes and to help her keep up her grades. ABC Bank staff led by the Friends of Kayole (FOK) group teamed up to buy her a laptop for her studies and she was presented with the laptop yesterday at our Head Office.
They say charity begins at home. This is what our staff believe in. On 26th June, ABC Bank staff gifted their support staff in the Head Office and Branches with packages to support them and their families during this tough Covid-19 pandemic times.
The support team has been at the forefront of ensuring that we are keeping safe during this period by ensuring our touchpoints are disinfected and clean. We appreciate our essential workers for their efforts and good work.
As part of ABC Bank’s culture of giving back to the community and our customers, we have been conducting various initiatives targeting various stakeholders and partners in supporting the Government and community to curb the spread of the Covid19 Virus.
The Bank is committed to making a difference through interventions such as the provision of face masks, hand sanitizers and the donation of food for families affected by the pandemic. Recently, we donated facemasks to our customers and partners for distribution to the vulnerable groups they work with.
We are also supporting efforts by the Government of Kenya to flatten the curve by contributing to the National COVID-19 Fund. The Bank has made a donation of Kes 1 million to the National COVID-19 Fund that is working with charities and community organizations to support vulnerable groups, especially in informal settlements.
ABC Bank joined our customer, MyCredit, in supporting a food donation drive that is distributing foodstuff in Kibera and Mukuru slums. MyCredit has partnered with GreenCard, a Community Based Organisation, that is working with the Government of Kenya to distribute hand sanitizers and foodstuffs in informal settlements as part of the efforts to curb the spread of Covid19.
The Bank joined the cause to buy foodstuff that will feed 3,000 families and go a long way in putting a meal on the table for the families that have been adversely affected by the pandemic.
