Leading non-banking financial institution, JISLAH Financial Services Limited has donated food items, toiletries and cash to the Children’s Ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital and the Weija Leprosarium.
A delegation from the company, jointly led by Ms. Mimi Anaman, Personal Assistant to the Chief Executive, and Mr. Emmanuel Obeng (Jnr), Senior Officer in charge of Project and Recovery made the first donation to the Children’s Ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital to present the items, including, diapers, bags of rice, sugar, water and cooking oil.
Ms. Anaman said the donation was part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility aimed at supporting the needy.
“As a Christian organisation, we believe in the mandate of giving back to society what God has blessed us with. We do this twice every year, on the Chief Executives’s birthday and the end of year,” she explained.
JISLAH, she reiterated, would continue to give care and support for the less-privileged in the society through its Corporate Social Responsibility programme and urged other corporate bodies to follow suit and support the needy
Mrs. Makafui Agbeko, Nursing Officer in charge of the Children’s Ward who received the items on behalf of the hospital, acknowledged the continuous support given by JISLAH over the years, and expressed profound gratitude to the company.
“We are grateful for the wonderful donation, especially the encouragement and support you have given us over the years,” she said
At the Weija Leprosarium, another team led by Mr. Christopher Quaye, Head of Recovery, presented bags of water, drinks, food and cash to the inmates.
The items were received by Mrs. Gladys Adobea, Leader/Prefect of the facility, who thanked the company for supporting the needy, and called on other corporate organisations to emulate JISLA’s example.
