As part of their corporate social responsibility, the National Insurance Company (NIC) yesterday donated some items to the Livingway Orphanage at Adonkia.
In a short statement, the Managing Director of NIC Arthur Yaskey said that the company was happy to be giving out gifts to needy people as it is part of their corporate social responsibility to give back to the public.
He said they should not always be talking about profit but sometimes it is good to identify with people and help with other social responsibilities.
The Managing Director said some of the profit they are making should definitely go back to those who need it most and that is why they have braved the weather and road to meet with children who need help in the society.
Mr Yaskey stressed that the donation was coming from the NIC Social Club, pointing out that the Proprietress of the Orphanage was once an employee of NIC.
The Managing Director said Miss Jean Rowe was a faithful and studious worker and he was shocked when she said she was resigning to do God’s work.
Mr Yaskey said he respected her wish and today he was happy that Miss Rowe has achieved her dream.
The General Manager said he hoped the gift would be of immense benefit to the children who would be the leaders tomorrow.
Making the presentation, the Chairlady of the NIC Social Club, Mrs Amira Bayoh said she was happy that the club was able to identify themselves with the orphanage and they were very happy to make such donations.
She said she hoped the children would benefit from the gift and they would get a good feed back in the future.
Expressing her delight to the NIC, Proprietress Miss Jean Rowe, said that when she left NIC, she made up her mind to work for the less privileged, as well as serving God.
Now she said her dream has come to pass and because of the good work she has been doing, that was why NIC had come to identify themselves with her.
She prayed for the company to continue to develop and the staff to succeed in all their endeavours.
The children were happy to receive the gifts and prayed that NIC would remember them again.
