FDH Bank on Tuesday donated K305,000 to the Foundation for People with Albinism in Malawi (FOPAM) to help towards the establishment of the grouping.
Presenting the cheque in Blantyre, FDH Bank Head of Credit Innocent Njati Banda said the Bank was proud to support such a grouping which, among others, aims at improving education, social standards as well as well as providing micro lending services with people with Albinism. He said FOPAM and FDH Bank shared a mutual goal of bringing a positive impact to communities.
FDH Financial Holdings Limited has launched an HIV/AIDs work-place policy as a way of managing and contributing to the effective achievement of HIV/AIDs prevention and management in the work force.
Speaking during the launch at Mount Soche in Blantyre, the Bank’s director Judith Chirwa said the number of employees at the institution is growing and that currently, most of the employees are within the age group of 25-35 years, further stating that the age group is normally sexually active hence the need to sensitize them on HIV/AIDs and to ensure that all employees are aware of the effects of HIV/AIDs.
