NDB recently made a donation of medical necessities, nutritional supplements and surgical consumables to the Apeksha Hospital Maharagama as a part of the bank’s Corporate Responsibility strategies. 

The donated items included post-operative salves and liniments which the patients cannot afford to purchase on their own. These items are vital to prevent bacterial infections as well as speed up the healing process. Furthermore, a special brand – Intrasite Gel – which does not contain Iodine was also donated to be used on patients who are allergic to Iodine. The items donated were identified by the doctors and hospital staff of Apeksha Hospital as essentials in short supply. This donation was funded from the proceeds of the disposal of the Bank’s shares which arose from the residual fractions of the scrip dividend 2017 declared by the Bank in 2017.
