Bank Distributes 3,000 Food Packs to Vulnerable Households in Zamfara

To help alleviate the effects of hunger in Nigeria, Fidelity Bank Plc distributed over 3,000 food packs to vulnerable households and underprivileged families in Gusau, Zamfara State.

A press release issued by the bank on Monday stated that the gesture was part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative. This initiative aims to reach out to vulnerable individuals and reduce hunger within communities.

“The Fidelity Food Bank Initiative is designed to alleviate the hardship experienced by many due to the current economic challenges in the country,” said Muhammad Ahijo, the bank’s Regional Head, North West 2.

“At Fidelity Bank, we recognize the importance of supporting and empowering communities to thrive. We believe that by investing in the well-being of the communities we serve, we contribute to building a better society for all.

“We firmly believe that addressing the root causes of poverty and alleviating hunger can make a significant impact on the lives of those in need.  Therefore, Fidelity Bank has donated 3,000 food packs to vulnerable families in the state to help them get through these difficult times.”

While commending the initiative by Fidelity Bank, Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal, represented by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Mukhtar Lugga, said, “We are grateful for the kind gesture from Fidelity Bank in providing support to vulnerable households and less privileged families in our community. This is coming at a time when people cannot afford a meal before and during the holy month of Ramadan.”

In his own remarks, the Accountant General of Zamfara State, Alhaji Ali-Akilu Muhammad, expressed his gratitude to Fidelity Bank for its generosity and urged other banks operating in the state to emulate the Fidelity Bank gesture by providing succor to the less privileged families in the state.
