GCB Bank has inaugurated a mechanised borehole facility valued at GH¢15,000 for Watchman Community in the Sunyani Municipality at the Brong Ahafo Region.

This gesture, which is to support the deprived community, was done as part of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility and also to commemorate its 65th anniversary celebration.

The borehole facility with an overhead tank is situated in a cluster of huts close to the hut of a 43-year-old herbalist, Kpen Kwame, who treats patients with bone fractures for free.

Speaking at the inauguration, Mrs Evelyn Ama Kumi-Richardson, the Sunyani Municipal Chief Executive, commended GCB Bank for the facility which she said will ease the water burden on the community, as their only source of water is a stream far away from the community.

The Municipal Chief Executive thanked GCB Bank and was hopeful that the bank will continue to partner the Assembly in providing much-needed amenities in the Municipality.

Mr. Dominic Cobbinah, the Area Manager of GCB Bank, speaking at the function stated that, the community was selected based on the invaluable services the herbalist was providing free of charge to people.

He added that as part of GCB Bank’s 65th anniversary activities, a six unit classroom block valued at Gh¢250,000 was constructed for Bomaa Roman Catholic Junior High School in the Tano North District, and also, refurbished the science block of the Sacred Heart Senior High School at Nsoatre in the Sunyani west district.

With so much joy on the faces of the community members, the herbalist’s Sister, Madam Yaa Faustina, on behalf of her brother and the Community thanked GCB Bank for their kind gesture and promised that the community will maintain the facility.
