Local Communities

Promoting community development
In each of its host countries, the Orabank Group participates, supports and initiates citizen actions. They must demonstrate their sustainable and supportive nature, and are evaluated upstream to ensure the seriousness of their protagonists and the proper coverage of the need for vulnerable populations. As a human bank, committed and citizen, we invest in local people and communities.
Here are some local examples of our commitments:

Orabank Benin has decided to support two centers for abandoned children: the Ouidah nursery and the GRACIA orphanage. The bank, with the involvement of all the staff, made a donation in cash and food. The cash donation was composed of a part coming from the bank and the other one from a symbolic and voluntary contribution of all the staff. It is with arms full of food and basic necessities for early childhood that the management of the bank went to the nursery of Ouidah. 

The General Management and the staff of Orabank Mali will join the National Blood Transfusion Center on October 21, 2021, for a voluntary blood bag collection operation. The shortage of blood bags is frequent and leads to the loss of human life on a daily basis. We must mobilize ourselves to actively participate in blood donation. Giving blood is a generous, supportive and responsible act to save lives.

Orabank Guinea Bissau donated materials for the renovation of a health post in a dilapidated state at the Regional Hospital of Gabu, which was the victim of a robbery. Orabank Guinea Bissau also donated 15 beds to the hospital. This donation aims at supporting the hospital staff and helping them to work in good conditions.
