Ghana: Stanbic employees donates to Breast Care International

The Affluent Banking Team of Stanbic Bank Ghana has contributed GH¢20,000 to Breast Care International as a demonstration of their dedication to promoting breast cancer awareness and care. This generous donation was presented during a community outreach event aimed at raising awareness about breast cancer. The event took place at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Living Streams Congregation in Ashiyie, a suburb of Accra.

Speaking at the ceremony, Head of Affluent Clients at Stanbic Bank, Margaret Obimpeh, shared that the donation forms part of the team’s mission to impact lives.

She said: “At Stanbic Bank, we firmly believe in not only providing top-notch banking services, but also ensuring that we make positive impacts in the communities we operate. We believe that the issue of breast cancer is a very important one as it is one of the leading cancers that claim the lives of women in Ghana. Unfortunately, there is a lot of stigma around it and many women fear getting checked. That is why we partnered with the Breast Care International on this awareness creation drive. They have been doing an incredible work in this area; and today, we are here to ensure that the people of Ashiyie benefit from this campaign”.

“Women empowerment is at the centre of everything we do. Recently, the bank launched the Stanbic Women’s Forum to empower and support the ladies in the bank. We remain committed to supporting the ‘She’ cause. This donation is to help women in need of financial assistance to get checked or undergo treatment for this ailment. Breast cancer is a universal problem and we all need to get involved. Early detection and prompt action save lives,” she added.

Dr. Beatrice Addai Wiafe of Breast Care International received the cheque on behalf of the organisation and thanked the bank, saying: “We are grateful to the Affluent Team of Stanbic for this generous donation and for supporting us today at this breast screening event. We say early detection saves lives, but it is actually early detection and prompt action that saves lives. We must create awareness and ensure that even after October and throughout the year, we continue to spread the word and ensure people get checked before it is too late”

Stanbic Bank Ghana has consistently demonstrated its dedication to empowering women through a range of initiatives. Before the breast screening event, the bank actively engaged in a health walk alongside Breast Care International to foster awareness. Furthermore, the bank recently introduced the Stanbic Women’s Forum, aiming to champion gender equality and create a more inclusive and promising future for women within the institution.
