“It is unfortunate that people give birth and abandon them at the mercy of the harsh weather though we wish such incidents do not continue and as a bank we will continue to support your activities,” he said.
The Country Manager for Afrikids, Mr. Nicholas Kudjoe Kumah, expressed his gratitude to the Bank for their contribution towards putting smiles on the faces of the deprived, vulnerable, abandoned, orphaned and neglected children.
