BOND Savings and Loans Plc. have again gone to the rescue of deprived families who are unable to afford the cost of surgeries to correct congenital heart diseases.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the company has doled out GH¢35,880 in aid of four-year old Fafali Kluvia, diagnosed with a hole-in- heart condition.
The amount will enable little Fafali undergo surgery at the National Cardiothoracic Centre, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) to correct the abnormality.
The Company, last Thursday donated that amount of money to the Children’s Heart Foundation at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital at a brief session organised by the Foundation to receive donations on behalf of children diagnosed with congenital heart diseases.
The Children’s Heart Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental voluntary organisation.
BOND has been supporting the Foundation for the past 5 years, an initiative which is part of the company’s mission.
Media and Public Relations Officer for BOND, Ms Jacqueline Pinto told The Finder the objective is to “extend some relief to these young ones so they can get well, go back to school and play.”
“We are always delighted to be able to support these children; at BOND we always say that we believe Ghanaians must support their own and we are proud to associate with this worthy cause,” Ms Pinto said.
On behalf of BOND, she encouraged parents of diagnosed children to keep hope and support their children.
“We know these are challenging times but thank God we are all here to support; take good care of these young ones and we believe God will see you through,” she appealed.
