Residents of Kamuli district have welcomed an extension of Centenary Bank’s expanding Corporate Social Responsibility in the health services sector.
The banking giants on Thursday reached out to communities in the eastern district, by providing mattresses worth shs2.1 million to Kamuli Mission Hospital. The mattresses will be used by patients in the newly refurbished ward at the hospital.
Officials at the bank revealed that this was one of the activities being carried out to mark its Kamuli branch customer week which started on November 03 and ends on November 7, 2014.
The event was presided over by District LC5 Chairperson Hon. Salaam Musumba, who lauded Centenary Bank for promoting better health services in the district by making the hospital a comfortable and conducive place for patients in the district.
“Today’s function demonstrates that as a bank, we recognize the importance of the provision of high quality medical services in society to ensure that our people receive worthy health services in their time of need,” Moses Oseku, Branch Manager Centenary Bank –Kamuli said at the event.
The bank, he added, is complimenting the efforts of the hospital in delivering quality health services to patients at the hospital.
“We strongly believe that the mattresses we are providing today will create comfort for patients at Kamuli Mission Hospital wards,” he said.
Early this year, Centenary Bank also extended similar support to Bugiri Referral Hospital where it donated mattresses worth shs1 million to the maternity ward. The support followed a visit to the hospital by the bank’s team in Bugiri where it found that the hospital lacked mattresses and some of the available ones were very old and tattered.
“It is our hope that our exemplary actions today will inspire other able organizations, big and small, to lend additional assistance to health centers in Kamuli district to promote good health in our communities,” Oseku noted.
