Stanchart partners United Way to support vulnerable communities

Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited has partnered United Way Ghana to provide COVID-19 relief to vulnerable households in the Ayawaso District in the Greater Accra Region.

The relief package comprises nutrition packs, health and hygiene items to vulnerable households, literacy materials for children and sanitation items to a Community Health Centre.


Beyond giving out the relief packs, United Way Ghana will also undertake community sensitisation to ensure families follow hygiene protocols.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted the vulnerable, and as such Standard Chartered Bank, as part of its GH¢1 million commitment to support emergency relief and aid those affected believes in empowering the underserved in Ghana.

The Chief Financial Officer of Standard Chartered Ghana, Mr Kweku Nimfah-Essuman, who made the presentation on behalf of the bank, said the bank was committed to supporting its communities and the country at large during such dire times of need.

“Our immediate goal is to deliver relief measures to support the most vulnerable, and it is the reason we have partnered with United Way to address the needs of the most impacted. We shall continue mobilising our resources to support the most vulnerable,” he stated.

He said the partnership with United Way was aimed at augmenting the efforts of the government and other stakeholders to contain the outbreak of the virus, while embarking on a house to house sensitisation programme, using the local languages, to ensure that targeted individuals were well informed about the COVID-19 virus and how it spread.

For her part, the acting Executive Director of United Way Ghana, Ms Janet Butler, said her outfit was excited to partner Standard Chartered to support the vulnerable during these trying times.

“Many of the children in such communities receive their main meal at school and with the schools closed, they are left hungry. These relief packs will go a long way in feeding them as their families navigate the economic challenges,” she noted.

She said United Way Ghana was a non-profit organisation devoted to making real social impact in underserved communities through their ‘Improving Basic Education’ Programme.
