STANBIC IBTC Holdings Plc has provided 20 children with limb differences with prosthetic limbs and education trust funds under its signature corporate and investment initiative, ‘Together4 A Limb’. The provisions, the financial institution said, formed part of its commitment to see that every Nigerian child is given the opportunity to live a productive and fulfilled life.
A 4-kilometre charity walk to raise public awareness of children without limbs or limb differences was flagged off by Isaac Adewole, guest of honour, minister of health, who was represented by Chris Bode, chief medical director, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
The charity walk was immediately followed by the presentation of cheques for the education trust fund to each of the latest beneficiary children, who had been successfully fitted with artificial limbs. This year’s seven beneficiaries were presented cheques by Bode, Ngozi Edozien, non-executive director, Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, and Ifeoma Esiri, chairman, Stanbic IBTC Asset Management Limited.
