Co-operative Bank injects Ksh100 million to coronavirus emergency fund
The Co-operative Bank of Kenya has injected Ksh.100 million to the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency fund as part of the lender’s efforts to support the containment of the coronavirus crisis.
According to the lender, the contribution will be channeled towards the purchase of critical medical supplies.
“This is a critical moment for our country. The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest crisis of our time particularly in the effort to source critical life-saving medical supplies and equipment, especially ventilators that are in short supply globally,” noted Co-operative Bank Chief Executive Officer Gideon Muriuki.
“The Board of Directors and Staff of Co-op Bank is honoured to support with a key cash contribution of Ksh.100 million, preferably to be allocated towards purchase of critical ventilators.”
Muriuki called on other players in the private sector to join in supporting the fight against the ongoing global pandemic.
“We once more request and appeal to other corporate institutions and Kenyans of goodwill to join hands and support this most worthy once-in-a-generation fight,” added Mr. Muriuki.
