Fidelity Bank Plc, has donated the sum of N10 million to Eunice Spring of Life Foundation (ESLF), a pet project of the Benue First Lady, to enable it continue with its many humanitarian services to the people of Benue State.

Donating the cheque, the Executive Director (North) of Fidelity Bank, Hassan Imam, said the bank was pleased with the various ESLF interventions in its four thematic areas of Education, Health, Governance and Economic Empowerment.
According to him, ESLF has one of the best initiatives that would be most impactful in the lives of the vulnerable people in the society.
