As part of celebration to mark its second anniversary, the Royal Bank in collaboration with Zoomlion Ghana Limited undertook a cleanup exercise at the Princess Marie- Louise Children's Hospital in Accra.

The initiative was aimed at exposing members of the community to the importance of maintaining a clean environment through frequent clean up exercises.

Management of staff of the bank were seen sweeping and cleaning gutters in an around the hospital to prevent any outbreak of communicable diseases.

The bank also donated an amount of GH¢5,000, food stuff, toiletries and other items to support the hospital upcoming Christmas party.

Head of Strategic Planning, Research and Corporate Affairs, Dr. Kwame Baah-Nuako said the decision to clean up is to support government campaign on sanitation.

He noted that the choice of the Children's Hospital for the exercise is to ensure children who are more susceptible to communicable diseases remain in good health to enjoy Christmas.

Dr. Baah-Nuako said as a people centered bank, they always seek to champion social activities to improve the lives of the unprivileged in society.

“The focus area for the Royal Bank foundation is health and sanitation so when we decided to celebrate our second anniversary, it came naturally to the bank to do things that support what the foundation is doing” he added.

Dr. Baah-Nuako promised their continuous support for the Princess Marie-Louise Children's Hospital.

Receiving the items and cash donation on behalf of the hospital, the Medical Superintendent, Dr. Eric Sefah said the donation was very timely as they prepare for their Christmas party.

He stressed that the donation will go a long way to bring a smile to the faces of the children.

Dr. Eric Sefah made a passionate appeal to corporate institutions and individuals to support their bid to provide a better health facility
