President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has hailed Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank), a commercial entity operating in Liberia, for their numerous contributions to the development of the economy.
The Chief Executive lauded GTBank Wednesday, October 29, when the commercial bank contributed an ambulance valued over US$55,000 for government’s fight against the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.
“I want to thank you for what you are doing, especially for choosing this occasion and day to make such presentation.
“This contribution is cardinal to the national fight because this is where we are in short supplies,” the President told the cooperate institution.
She further indicated, “The ambulance would be turned over to the General Services Agency (GSA) for use by the National Task Force on Ebola. We are making significant progress in this fight and thanks to domestic support we have received and continue to receive in this direction in the fight against the virus.”
In remarks, GTBank Board of Directors expressed the bank’s commitment in delivering on its social cooperate responsibilities.
On behalf of the Bank, Mr. E. C. B. Jones, a member of the bank’s Board of Directors, pointed out that the ambulance donation came as a result of several meetings instituted by the bank aimed at aiding national effort in the regional fight.
“The bank is hopeful that this modest assistance will pay an important part in the national campaign against the virus.
“With these donations and assistances, we’re very hopeful that in no time the virus will be kicked out of the country and the entire region can return to normality,” Jones asserted.
The ambulance donation was made during the President’s 76th birthday celebration at her Foreign Ministry offices in Monrovia.
According to the bank, said presentation is part of the entity’s commitment to adequately serving the Liberian people in every capacity that best suits their desires and aspirations.
