FIRST National Bank (FNB) will continue to supplement Government efforts in providing proper health care services across the country.
FNB Senior Manager Corporate Affairs, Mpangwe Mutwale, said the financial firm would continue with this in areas in which it operated.
Mr Mutwale said the firm had witnessed how the the country had been negatively impacted by the the Covi-19 pandemic, hence, the resolve to supplement the efforts.
Mr Mutwale was speaking shortly before he handed over 220 oxygen cylinders valued at K 70, 000 to Kitwe Teaching Hospital ( KTH).
“FNB is concerned with the welfare of bank employees who were also part of the community that is why we are doing what we are doing to help.
“We will continue to ensure that the communities we operate were protected from the pandemic by also ensuring edherance,” he said.
Meanwhile, KTH acting head Clinical Care Benson Kaluba thanked the financial institution for the gesture.
Dr Kaluba appealed to other cooperating partners to emulate what FNB had done and help the hospital with more oxygen cylinders as well as drugs to manage the Covi-19 virus.
He advised members of the community to get vaccinated and adhere to all the Covid-19 health guidelines all the time so as to reduce the spread of the pandemic.
