As challenging as the year 2021 was, Demerara Bank said it was also inspiring for its employees, who, in keeping with the Bank’s social responsibility, witnessed the meaningful impact of their activities in helping a number of entities and communities across the country.
In December 2021, the Bank’s activities included lighting and beautifying the avenue between Lamaha and New Market Streets, Georgetown, donations to the Mahaica Children’s Home and Cheshire Home on the East Coast of Demerara and the Bal Nivas Children’s Home in Berbice.
The Mahaica Children’s Home and the Bal Nivas Children’s Home both provide shelter for children who come from abusive households or were otherwise displaced, while the Cheshire Home provides specialized care for adults suffering with physical disabilities.
These activities were complimented by hamper distributions to impoverished families in the Corriverton area and a Toy Drive at its Essequibo branch which benefitted forty (40) children with Kids Savings Accounts.
According to a representative, Social Responsibility is deeply engraved in the culture of Demerara Bank Limited and the Bank will continue to respond to new calls for support, particularly in the area of health, education and community development.
The Bank, in its statement, expressed its deepest appreciation to its customers and employees for their patronage and continued support over the last year, and extended best wishes to all Guyanese for a prosperous new year.
