StanChart donates masks to Red Cross
STANDARD Chartered Bank Zimbabwe has donated 14 000 masks to the Zimbabwe Red Cross Society for use in its efforts to fight the pandemic.
The bank is responding to the need for Personal Protective Equipment for health workers dealing with Covid-19 cases across the country.
The bank’s chief executive, Ralph Watungwa, said the donation is underpinned by Standard Chartered’s brand to be “Here for good”.
“We are determined to live up to our brand promise. Our resilience means we can focus our efforts on supporting our clients and communities — both now, and through the longer-term renewal once this pandemic has subsided,” Watungwa said in a statement.
Accepting the donation, Zimbabwe Red Cross Society secretary-general Maxwell Phiri thanked the bank for the gesture and called for continued partnership in response to Covid-19 and other related humanitarian programmes the Red Cross is championing.
