As part of its Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability initiative, the foremost insurance company, FBNInsurance Limited, recently donated various items to Homes and Hospice in Lagos and Port Harcourt.
The company visited children at the Heritage Homes Orphanage (Lagos) and Rhema Orphanage Home (Port Harcourt). Items such as food, beverages, toiletries, clothes as well as cash were donated to the children of the orphanage homes.
In the same vein, the company made a similar donation to the Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria, Lagos. Most of the items donated to the Homes and Hospice were largely raised through the company’s annual Staff Gift Drive, an in-house initiative that encourages members of staff of the company to donate various items for a common cause. The FBNInsurance Staff Gift Drive which incepted in 2015, is in its 6th year.
While appreciating the goodwill of the insurer, the Assistant General Manager, Heritage Homes Orphanage, Mr. Reuben Amara, said: “On behalf of the Board, Management and the entire members of the Heritage Homes Orphanage, we express our deepest appreciation to the Board, Management and the entire staff of FBNInsurance Limited for their kind donation towards the upkeep of the children in the Home. We pray that the Almighty God will reward your labour of love, especially at this difficult time of the global COVID-19 pandemic.”
The National President of the Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria, Mrs. Rose Mordi, also expressed the Foundation’s profound appreciation and gratitude for the insurer’s kind donation. In her statement, she said: “We are grateful for your support, concern, love and for the interest shown to our mission. We thank you from the depth of our hearts and pray that FBNInsurance continues to grow from strength to strength.”
The Management, staff and children of Rhema Orphanage Home, Port Harcourt, in their words of appreciation to FBNInsurance, prayed for continuous growth of the company.
While commenting on the initiative, the Executive Director, Shared Services Division, Mr. Festus Izevbizua, stated that the company is delighted as the initiative is held in the month of February which is a month of love, sacrifice, sharing and giving. He reassured the Orphanages and Foundation of the insurers’ continued commitment to support the cause of the organisations in making the society a better place.
