They urged the persons having such financial capability in the corporate sector to come forward to donate at least their minimum for the welfare of the society and its people.

Appreciating the CSR programme arranged to celebrate the bank’s founding anniversary, Mr SK Sur Chowdhury said the central bank’s proper guideline and mentoring regarding CSR led the banks to contribute more under CSR.

Saying that the banks in the corporate sector spent highest under CSR, he hoped that the banks’ philanthropic activities will be strengthened more in the days coming.

Mr Rafiq Ul Haque and Niazuddin called upon the persons with sufficient financial capability to come forward to do something for the welfare of the human being.

The bank’s officials said FSIBL always extended their assistance for the distressed community in education, health and various natural calamities as a part of CSR.

It contributes almost 5 percent of its operational profit in this project.
