National Investment Bank (NIB) has donated a sum of GH¢30,000 to cover up the expenditures of surgery, physiotherapy and medical expenses at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) for a junior high school graduate, Patience Addo.
The 16-year-old patient, who has been diagnosed of tumor in the spine and wanted vital remedial surgery to bring back her health, has been caught NIB’s attention through Global Outreach Consortium, a non-governmental organisation focused on the delivery of advanced medical care to the underprivileged through collaboration.
The bank was touched to make a differentiation in her life as part of its corporate social initiatives.
The Head of Corporate Affairs, Charles Wordey, who presented the cheque on behalf of the bank, reiterated NIB’s make their mind up to continue providing support to the deprived and needy in the society, as this is one of the fundamental standards of the bank.
He, therefore, entreated the customers of the bank to keep faith with NIB to enable it to reach out a lot more to the needy.
Patience got paralyzed in 2016 a few weeks after she was diagnosed of the tumour.
This injured and deprived her of the opportunity to sit her Basic Education Certification Examination (BECE) at the Association Basic School.
She, however, managed to sit the exam in 2018 following interventions by some kind organisations supporting with relief and maintenance medications.
Her condition deteriorated and required urgent surgery to correct it.
