Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI) James Foster on Monday presented a cheque valued One Million, Five Hundred and Thirty-Eight Thousand Dollars ($1,538,000) generated from the GBTI Haiti Disaster Relief Fund to Prime Minister Brigadier (Ret’d) Mark Phillips.
Foster said GBTI activated the fund following the devastating earthquake in August and encouraged public support.
“The donation is a collective effort of the bank, its employees and members of the public who willingly joined the effort,” the Bank said in a statement.
Prime Minister Phillips lauded GBTI’s corporate initiative and expressed best wishes for continued growth.
Meanwhile, GBTI extends its gratitude to all those who contributed to the fund aimed at offering support to the government and people of Haiti.
