FDH Bank has challenged fellow profit-making organisations in the country to support early development of vulnerable children living in orphanages and other extended families for them to become productive citizens.

The bank’s Mangochi Branch Manager Mercy Chokhotho made the remarks last week in Mangochi when the bank donated K1million to Open Arms Infant Homes, a charity organisation which provides medical care, shelter, and food to vulnerable infants.

Chokhotho said his bank considers children’s rights to be of paramount importance.

Thus, the bank thought of including business activities in its operations to support disadvantaged children so that they live in an environment that is conducive for proper growth and development.

“Children deserve a naturally conducive environment to grow in, one that not only provides for rehabilitation of children, but one that provides for their physical, social, psychological well-being,” said Chokhotho.

Open Arms administrator Rashid Kapalasa commended FDH for the donation.

He described the donation as timely considering various challenges the institution is facing in its quest to raise vulnerable children in an acceptable environment.

Kapalasa revealed that at the moment the institution has 35 infants with the youngest aged three weeks while the oldest is 3 years old.
