Access Bank Zambia Joins The Fight Against COVID-19

As part of its commitment to attending to the needs of the people within the communities in which it operates, Access Bank Zambia donated assorted items to Masauko market in Kanyama compound, Lubama market in Kamwala and to the Zambia National Association of the Deaf (ZNAD). These items are meant to help the market and surrounding communities in the fight against COVID-19. The items donated include water tanks, hand sanitisers, nose masks, among others.

Receiving the donation on behalf of the markets, the Zambia National Marketeers Credit Association (ZANAMACA) president, Mr. Mupila Kameya thanked Access Bank for the kind gesture and assured the team of prudent utilization of the donated materials.
 
Leading the Access Bank team to present the items, Country Managing Director Mrs Joana Bannerman indicated the Bank’s readiness to support and complement government efforts to curb the spread of the Corona Virus and the Bank’s commitment to sustainable socio-economic growth in Zambia through the provision of affordable and convenient banking products and services to the segments of our population which hitherto do not have access to banking facilities. i.e. the Zipange Account, a flexible tier 1 account. 
 
She added, “This feat marks an increase in the number of initiatives Access Bank has undertaken across the country. Focus areas for the Bank’s CSR initiatives covers health, education, environment, sports, arts and culture. Helping to deepen the Bank’s community engagements, these projects have directly impacted the lives of people including children, women and the underprivileged in society, with a lot of people being indirect beneficiaries of the numerous projects which were deliberately targeted at critical areas of the community”.
 
Giving meaning to this promise, the Bank in December 2019 donated assorted items, and even participated in the cleaning, and painting at Lusaka Central Correctional Facility, popularly known as Chimbokaila to improve and enhance the lives of inmates especially the women and the circumstantial children who are born to women in the prison.

Acknowledged for its catalyst role for socio-economic development across Zambia, Access Bank continues to demonstrate its commitment to responsible business practice through initiatives and programmes that focus on health, education, sports, arts & culture and the environment.
