Ecobank Nigeria’s continued support to the welfare of less privileged children in the SOS homes across Nigeria has attracted commendation.

Erhumwunse Eghosa, national director, SOS Children’s Villages in Nigeria, says Ecobank has consistently demonstrated strong financial support to SOS Villages in the country, thereby making life meaningful for the children.

Eghosa enjoins other corporate organisations and public spirited individuals to emulate the bank, saying “we are grateful for your humanitarian support. This most importantly reminds the children that you believe in their right to a happy, healthy childhood and a bright future.”

He assures that the children will continue to receive the needed physical and emotional bonding that every child deserves, “so as to help them cope with the challenges of their day-to-day life as well as build and strengthen the foundation for their holistic development.”

In a statement, Jibril Aku, managing director, Ecobank Nigeria, says the bank’s support to the SOS Villages is part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment.

He explains that the bank has consistently supported the organisation annually because “we share a common vision of assisting the under-privileged in the society,” as children need long-term family-based care.

In his words: “This donation is in line with our commitment to help the SOS Villages to continue in their mission of providing a loving home for every child that has been orphaned or abandoned. We share that common vision and as a responsible bank, we will continue to play an active role in this regard.”
