Fidelity Bank marks national Chocolate Day with donations

Fidelity Bank through its customer experience team embarked on philanthropic initiatives to mark the national Chocolate Day celebration.

The initiatives included the donation of GHS10,000 and two boxes of locally made chocolates to the New Horizon School and a special event honouring mothers of children with disabilities.

The Bank also marked the day at Cosmos Centre for Children with Special Needs in Dormaa Ahenkro where a donation of items valued at GHS 10,000 was made to support efforts of providing specialised care for children with special needs.

The initiatives highlighted the Bank’s longstanding commitment to inclusivity, empowering the less fortunate, and community development.

Speaking at the New Horizon School, Madam Comfort Amoo, Head, Customer Experience, said: ‘Building an inclusive future where everyone has access to opportunity, regardless of ability, is a core value at Fidelity Bank.’

‘Our enduring support for New Horizon exemplifies our commitment to this principle. The interactions and
conversations we share with the students here are truly enriching, reminding us to return each year and offer our love and support,’ she said.

She noted that the National Chocolate Day and the month of love presented the perfect opportunity to share those moments with the New Horizon family.

Jocelyn Adoboe, Deputy Principal (Academic Section) of New Horizon Special School, expressed gratitude to the Bank for the continuous support to the School.

‘From supporting us through challenging times to offering this generous donation, Fidelity Bank truly embodies the spirit of partnership. This combination of essential materials and the engaging chocolate experience perfectly represents ‘learning through joy”.

Beyond chocolate delights, Fidelity Bank’s Accra Sector recognised the remarkable resilience of mothers raising children with disabilities.

A special luncheon and donation event held at the Ghana Federation of Disability Organisations (GFD) offered the extraordinary women a moment of respite, connection, a
nd support.

Mrs. Hannah Awadzi, Executive Director of the Special Mothers Project, commended the Bank for its commitment to inclusivity and called for more engagement towards addressing issues affecting children with disabilities.

Majorie Quansah, Corporate Social Responsibility Co-Ordinator, said the National Chocolate Day presented an opportunity to spread kindness and make a positive impact in the Ghanaian communities.
