Keystone Bank Nigeria has donated a renovated and fully-equipped Sick Bay to Dodan Barracks Primary School, Obalende, Lagos.
Speaking on this gesture, the Divisional Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications of the bank, Mrs. Omobolanle Osotule said the intervention is in line with keeping with the bank’s commitment to improve the learning and teaching environment in the country and manage minor health challenges of the students.
Buttressing her point, Osotule said: “As a bank that is committed to the development of Nigerian youths, Keystone Bank recognises education as the bedrock of sustainable development, which is why education is one of our core CSR pillars. As much as education is an essential aspect of the development of any society, it is also important that children have easy access to first level healthcare while at school”.
“The initiative is part of the bank’s overall strategy to create a sustainable impact around healthcare, education, youth/women empowerment and employee volunteering. We shall continue to do more in this regard.” Osotule stressed.
In his response, the head teacher of the school, Mr Kayode Edun, thanked the Bank for the kind gesture. “We truly appreciate the efforts of Keystone Bank in giving the school’s sick bay a new lease of life. It is our prayer that the bank will continue to grow from strength to strength; and as progress is made, more initiatives like this will be implemented”, Edun said.
