National Bank Joins Red Cross to Fight Hunger 

March 8, 2017: National Bank had joined the Kenya Red Cross initiative seeking to raise Sh1 billion to fight hunger which is currently ravaging some parts of the country following long drought spell.

Speaking on the initiative, National Bank Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Wilfred Musau said the bank hadset up an account through a Pay bill number 625625 and account number 01020077840098, where all well-wishers can send their contributions.

“As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility activities, we have partnered with the Kenya Red Cross Society in support of millions of Kenyans facing starvation. Our staff members and customers are on board to support the Kenya Redcross #WeAreAllKenyansinitiative aimed at raising Sh1 billion to feed those affected by drought in the country,” Mr. Musau said.

Kenya Red Cross Society estimates that the number of Kenyans facing starvation could reach 2.4 million by April if no urgent and appropriate actions are taken. The ongoing drought crisis has left 12 counties at an alarm stage and 11 counties at an alert stage.

To cushion its customers from other charges, all internal account transfers (within National Bank) of any amount of funds to account number 01020077840098 (KRCS DROUGHT) will be done free of charge.
