Through our social investment programme, the Power to Make a Difference, we hope to continue to build on and forge greater partnerships with those committed to championing the rights and standards of living for the ill, the socially marginalized and the differently able brothers and sisters, whom we have a duty to protect. To quote the words of Mr. John Holmes: “There is no exercise better for the heart, than reaching down and lifting people up.””
Republic Bank remains committed to working with groups and community-based organizations which dedicate their time and resources to helping those in need.
