This presentation today is one of many that Trust Bank extends annually to NDMA to assist the agency to enhance their level of preparedness in disaster prevention, mitigation, response and recovery.
Our partnership with NDMA is a longstanding one and we share some common values. I am proud to say that since we started this partnership about a decade ago, we have never relented in our efforts to provide financial support to the agency.
At Trust Bank Ltd, we strive to foster hope among our local communities by helping to create the right environment for victims of disaster to have the kind of support they need. By focusing our giving through our comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility program, we are moving closer towards our goal of creating hope where there is despair.
We are immensely proud and humbled that our donations are touching the lives of individuals and families throughout the country by providing protection against the negative impact of natural disaster for victims
Mr. Trawally acknowledged and applauded the incredible work that NDMA is doing in the country,
We at Trust Bank have been immensely encouraged and would like to use this opportunity to assure you of our firm commitment to further strengthen and expand the scope of our partnership for the benefit of the people of the Gambia
he concluded. The Vice President extolled the excellent relationship that Trust Bank has with the government through the Bank’s various interventions in the areas of Health, Education, Sports, and Disaster relief.
As a truly Gambian Bank, it was no surprise that Trust Bank answered to the clarion call. Government values its partnership with Trust Bank and hopes that it will grow from strength to strength.
The executive director of NDMA-Mr. Dahaba said that:
Disasters are no respecter of race, tribe or social status. They are events that inflict great damage, destruction and human suffering. The onus therefore is on all of us to join hands and support NDMA in our quest to provide relief service to victims of disaster
He thanked Trust Bank Ltd for their continued support over the years and enjoined the private sector and the general public to emulate them.
