POSB donates to United Bulawayo Hospitals

By Staff Writer

The People’s Own Savings Bank (POSB) recently handed over a linen donation to Bulawayo United Hospitals in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) thrust of identifying and responding  to the needs of healthcare institutions and care homes across the country.

POSB’s previous community social responsibility efforts under this initiative, has seen the bank providing linen and installing solar-powered boreholes in various hospitals and care homes across the country.

POSB Chief Executive Officer, Mr Garainashe Changunda, expressed the bank’s commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of Zimbabweans.

“Our mission is to positively impact the lives of our people in a sustainable manner. Beyond offering simple, responsive, innovative, and inclusive financial solutions through modern technologies, we believe in going the extra mile to care for the welfare of the communities we serve. Our ‘Lend a Hand’ sustainability initiative is specifically designed to improve access to healthcare services for Zimbabweans. By donating bed linen to United Bulawayo Hospitals, we aim to provide comfort and support to patients during their recovery,” said Mr Changunda.

With a legacy of service spanning a century and two decades, POSB continues to empower communities and drive positive change. Last year, as part of the same “Lend a Hand” initiative, POSB rehabilitated a solar-powered borehole, which the bank drilled years ago, but had become dysfunctional at Mahusekwa Hospital in Mashonaland East and distributed sanitary pads enough to last for a year to young girls at Marimasimbe Secondary school in Gokwe South, Midlands province.  

United Bulawayo Hospitals is a vital healthcare institution and plays a crucial role in providing healthcare service to the people of Bulawayo and beyond. The donation of linen, consisting of counterpanes and pillows will go a long way in improving healthcare facilities and ensuring that patients receive the care they deserve.
