By Donald Kogai

Kenya Commercial Bank contributed KShs.150

million towards emergency interventions to

cushion vulnerable citizens affected by the

COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds will be channeled through the

COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund formed by

President Uhuru Kenyatta to support Kenyans

during this crisis.

“We stand with the nation to help limit the

spread of the virus and ease the related

economic hardships faced by the communities

in which we operate in,” KCB Group CEO and

MD Joshua Oigara said.

“This pandemic is a new test of our collective

strength and we must work together to address

it. We are committed to play our part to support

this initiative and complement the

Government’s effort in empowering the most

vulnerable in our midst,” said Mr. Oigara who is

also a Board Member of the Fund Chaired by

Jane Karuku.

The contribution is in addition to the other

measures the Bank has taken to cushion the

customer and other stakeholders against the

raging impact of coronavirus.

These initiatives include a KShs. 20M donation

to the Ministry of ICT in-kind— public

campaign.
