Speaking to reporters, the Bank’s Director for Mliman City Branch, Mr Allen Killango, said the aid aimed at helping the mothers to take good care for their babies. “As we mark the International Day of African Child, CRDB Bank Mlimani Branch as a way of honouring the day and our children at large, we decided to donate various items to mothers who gave birth during the occasion climaxed last week and wish others who will come today and the following day,” he said. Commenting on the importance of the Day, Mr Killango expressed the need for value for the African child and Tanzania as they hold the nation’s future. “Young children should be given priority especially at this time we mark the African Child Day. They are our future economists and customers to our financial institutions,” he said. Some of the items donated by the Bank include, sugar, pampers, water, tea bags, washing soaps. Giving a vote of thanks on behalf of other mothers at the hospital, Tunu Tebesi thanked the bank for aid saying that would help them take care of their infants. “The majority of us (mothers) had no funds to purchase such donated items due to the economic hardship…. for that we thank you (CRDB Bank),” she noted.
