Eleven communities in six districts in the northern region have benefited from 12 boreholes constructed by The Royal Bank (TRB) Foundation. The communities include Gyamtutu- Salaga, Kukuo in Nanumba South, Makango in East Gonja, Gambaga, Gbintiri, and Nalerigu Atabiya, all in the East Mamprusi district.

The rest are Wulugu in the West Mamprusi district, Katejili, Kitare, Kokonagye and Mbowura, all in the Kpandai district. At the official commissioning of the boreholes at Gbintiri in the East Mamprusi district, the Chairman of TRB foundation, Rev. Faustell Asogba Coffie noted that the main objective of the foundation is to give back to society.

The foundation is the corporate social responsibility arm of the Bank. At its formation, the late Founder, Dr Adamu Iddrisu urged the foundation to go out and provide water for communities and make sure that every year 60 boreholes are constructed.

The Royal Bank has, since its inauguration in August, 2014, constructed close to 100 boreholes in the Greater Accra, Eastern, Central, Volta, Western, Ashanti, Brong-Ahafo and Upper East regions. TRB, according to Rev. Asogba, is focused on areas such as health, sanitation and water, education, culture and sports. TRB will continue to assist communities in the northern region to get basic human needs, he added. Rev. Asogba therefore appealed to the beneficiary communities to take proper care of the facilities provided to achieve its target goal.

He also urged them to ensure proper sanitation in their areas and not allow children to play around the facilities. Addressing the occasion, the Chief of Gbintiri, Obor Jababu Wajak expressed his heart felt gratitude to the TRB foundation for the support, saying it will go a long way to help the communities. He further appealed to other benevolent organizations to emulate TRB’s example, by coming out to help the needy in society.
