Among the items were rice, sugar, milk, milo, tea bags, and a prayer mat. It was presented yesterday at the Accra residence of the National Chief Imam.

According to the bank’s Head of Legal, Muctar Abbas, it has always been a tradition for the institution to donate to the Chief Imam during such festive periods.

“The idea is to help him deliver on his spiritual and physical obligation to the community because, as we are all aware, every day in this very house, the Chief Imam cooks and gives out foodstuffs to everyone in the community,” he said.

According to him, these items were a way for the bank to support the Chief Imam in his efforts to fulfill his mandate and to seek Allah’s blessings for its employees, managers, shareholders, and the entire country.


Mr. Abbas said the bank, as part of its corporate social responsibility, was involved in some religious and non-religious activities, including investing in projects concerning women empowerment, health, and charity, adding that “we do a lot; it’s just that sometimes we don’t really publicise them.”.

He explained that the institution was not only concerned with making money so that staff could be paid and shareholders could receive dividends but also included philanthropic efforts.

All this is important because we are not an island; every penny we make is from the community.”

As a result, the same community within which we operate needs to benefit, and we are making sure we spread the fortunes we have been blessed with,” Mr. Abbas said.


A prayer was offered for Allah’s blessings and divine intervention for the staff and the future of the bank by the Chief Imam.

“Honestly, most of them are deprived, and they depend on the Chief Imam’s support in breaking their fast, so this comes at a good time, and the Chief Imam is grateful,” he said.
