First National Bank Botswana (FNBB)staff volunteers last week unveiled results of a project whichthey undertook to renovate the Letsholathebe II Memorial Hospital paediatric ward in Maun.
This project was another initiative by the Bank’s CSR vehicle, the FNBB Foundation towards building the community.
Along with having revamped the children’s ward at the Letsholathebe II Hospital, staff engaged with children, entertaining them with various activities throughout the day.
FNBB Marketing and Communications Director, Bomolemo Selaledi said, “AsFNBB, we extend our gratitude for the continued support we get from our valued clients.
In the same breathwe realise the importance of reciprocating by giving back to the communities in which we operate.
Visiting a hospital or being hospitalised can be an unnerving experience, especially for children and we hope our staff’s efforts will make it more bearable for them.
The ward is not only in better condition now, but is also brighter, and has a more child-friendly look and feel.”
Staff volunteers spent the day refurbishing the walls in the paediatric ward with colourful fresh paintings and adding new toys for the kids to play with.
The FNBB Foundation has advised that the donation to Letsholathebe II Memorial Hospital came up to P50, 000.00.
The day proved to be therapeutic for staff and the young patients alike who all seemed delighted with the day’s results.
“FNBB supports the notion of improved health care for all Batswana, and more importantly, the children.
This project was aimed at assisting the Letsholathebe II Hospital in taking a step in this direction.
Through the FNBB Foundation, we will continue to support communities across Botswana in improving health care services,” concludedSelaledi.
The much-needed upgrade will not only improve patients’ and families’ experience but vastly improve the working environment for the ward staff.
The rehabilitation of the paediatric ward was done in efforts to contribute to the welfare of the children.
The foundation continues to lend a helping hand to assist non-profit organisations country-wide to deliver improved quality services.
