AS part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Royal Exchange Plc, has provided free health insurance to the staff and pupils of the Pacelli School of the Blind and partially sighted children for a one-year period at the first instance and also donated educational learning aids to the pupils of the school.

Speaking during the official presentation to the school, the Group Managing Director, Royal Exchange Plc, Chike Mokwunye, said that in Royal Exchange Plc, “one of the main objectives of our corporate social responsibility is to impart knowledge and assist the less privileged in the society, whenever the need arises, and as a responsible corporate citizen, we must be willing to offer a helping hand to those in society who need the support to become better citizens tomorrow”.

He said, “As children who already are at a disadvantage due to no faults of theirs, our aim is to make sure they learn valuable vocational and educational skills which in turn would make them more that capable of leading normal lives as responsible citizens who can fend for themselves and not be dependent on the larger society for any form of assistance”.

Mr. Chike Mokwunye also commended the Principal, teaching and other ancillary staff of the Pacelli School for their humanitarian efforts in ensuring the students have the best education available to them.

Speaking while receiving the educational materials and health insurance cover of behalf of the staff and pupils of the School, the Principal, Rev. Sis. Jane Onyeneri, (HHCJ) thanked the company for coming to the aid of the staff and more importantly, the pupils, through the provision of writing frames, mobility frames, stylus and other recreational materials which would enhance the learning of the students.

She said, “the offer of health insurance to all the pupils of the school, including the teaching and non-teaching staff is a noble gesture which will go a long way in ensuring that the students and staff are in the best of health throughout the year, while the students will also make good use of the learning and mobility tools provided by Royal Exchange”.
