Several Benefit from Ecobank Christmas Gesture

first_imgSeveral organizations including the Christian Association of the Blind, Fatima Cottage Orphanage Mission in the Township of Dixville and the Old Folks’ Home in Jacobs Town have benefited from Ecobank’s Christmas donation during the festive season. The donation, which was spearheaded by Gibson Kollie, head of domestic banking, included bags of rice, toiletries, cooking oil and cartons of fish. “It is a tradition of Ecobank Liberia that at the end of every year we identify with the less fortunate and other vulnerable persons during the festive season,” Mr. Kollie said. “Our managing director, Mr. Gilles Guarard, wants you to have a good festive season. This is why he instructed me to come and bring you these items,” Mr. Kollie told the beneficiaries. In their responses, the beneficiaries, including Mother Victoria B. Young, founder of Fatima Cottage Orphanage, Beyan Kotta of CAR and others lauded Ecobank Liberia for its donations to meet the needs of ordinary Liberians.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
