CIBC FirstCaribbean contributes to efforts of Arnott Cato Foundation
CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank continues to show its commitment to the improved delivery of health care in Barbados and across the region.
This through the recent presentation of a cheque to the Arnott Cato Foundation (ACF), which was set up to promote efficiency and productivity of human resources at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Margaret Hope, in thanking the bank for its assistance said the foundation was highly appreciative of the bank’s contribution. “CIBC FirstCaribbean has been a regular donor for the past four years and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the bank especially across the region.”
Michelle Whitelaw, CIBC FirstCaribbean’s Barbados Retail Banking Director, who made the presentation, noted that the bank was pleased to be able to contribute once again to the foundation. “We are pleased to assist with efforts to enhance the delivery of health care in Barbados and across the region. This is critical to the sustainable development of the wider community. We also salute the foundation for its efforts.”
The ACF promotes efficiency and productivity through research, training, and providing training-related technology. Assistance is also given to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to allow health personnel there to attend meetings and seminars. The foundation seeks to raise $80,000 a year for its programmes but funds have fallen short in the past two years. Nevertheless, it has still been able to put on a number of projects.
