Lagos Island Residents Enjoy Free Medical Tests and Treatment Courtesy Fidelity Bank

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, leading financial institution, Fidelity Bank Plc, recently facilitated a free medical outreach in the Lagos Island East Local Council Development Area (LCDA) through its Fidelity Helping Hand’s Programme (FHHP).

Held on Thursday, December 22, 2022, the outreach afforded members of the community an opportunity to undertake breast cancer screening, cervical cancer screening, cryotherapy, malaria test, blood pressure test, eye tests and diabetes screening as well as a deworming exercise and treatment of detected ailments at no cost.

Welcoming guests to the event, Branch Leader, Kofo Abayomi-Apapa SBU, Fidelity Bank Plc, Mr. Augustine Moemeke said, “Fidelity Bank is a bank that has the interest of the people at heart and that is why we regularly carry out initiatives like this across the country to enable us add value in the locations where we operate in.”

Moemeke also stated that the outreach was free and urged members of the community to take advantage of the programme to check their vital signs and quickly commence treatment for any ailment that may be detected.

Thanking the bank for the kind gesture, the Executive Chairman, Lagos Island East LCDA, Hon. Dr. Alade Folawiyo, mentioned that though the Local Council Development Area authorities provided the venue, the outreach programme was solely executed by the bank. He therefore encouraged members of the community to take advantage of the programme to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Besides the medical outreach, participants also received provisions, ready-made meals as well as corporate gift items from the bank to commemorate the Yuletide celebrations.

With the FHHP, staff across Fidelity Bank’s business locations identify projects that impact their immediate community and raise funds to execute them. The bank’s management thereafter matches this contribution with an equal amount and disburses it for the selected project.

Fidelity Bank is a full-fledged commercial bank operating in Nigeria with over 7.2 million customers serviced across its 250 business offices and digital banking channels. The bank was recently recognized as the Best SME Bank Nigeria 2022 by the Global Banking & Finance Awards. The bank has also won awards for the “Fastest Growing Bank” and “MSME & Entrepreneurship Financing Bank of the Year” at the 2021 BusinessDay Banks and Other Financial Institutions (BAFI) Awards.
