FNB Far North embraced International Nelson Mandela Day this week when the bank donated nappies to newly born babies at Ongwediva Medipark and Oshakati State Hospital, a gesture that is deemed to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better.
Representing the bank, Tomas Iindji FNB Far North area business manager accompanied by Annelize Adams FNB Far North wellness officer and Maria Nahole of FNB support staff, said this year they chose to celebrate focusing on health care – a right and responsibility which the bank holds very dear.
“We deem health care a right and responsibility and these responsibilities cannot be left alone to government but individuals and private sectors need to join hands in hands hence, our approach to partner with Ongwediva Medipark and Oshakati State Hospital in this regards because it promotes social participation. While initially many health promotion activities were driven by the conviction of individuals that hospitals could do more for the health of the people, evidence now supports the effectiveness of health promotion activities in hospitals. “In addition, greater impact on the health of individuals and groups will be accomplished by health promotion activities being integrated in quality improvement programmes. It was Nelson Mandela who stated that education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world and we are saying these children are the future of country hence, we need to support them,” Iindji said. He further stated that FNB’s goal with its Planet Strategy is to contribute positively to the development of the society, environment, and therefore the economy of all the regions that the bank operates whilst under the people, the bank has the best people working for the best company that care for others.
