Commenting on the initiative, Chief Executive of Stanbic IBTC Holdings, Dr. Demola Sogunle, said that the initiative has impacted 55 beneficiaries and emphasises its potential to impact even more lives in 2023. He added that Together4ALimb has provided hope and em­powerment to beneficiaries since 2015 and enabled them to pursue aspirations with the support of prostheses and the education trust provided by Stanbic IBTC.

In his words, “This year, Stanbic IBTC welcomes 45 new beneficiaries -the largest intake since the inception of the initiative. This will bring the total number of beneficia­ries, aged between 3 and 18, to 100. Each child will receive prostheses and a 1.5 million Naira educational trust fund. The initiative addresses health and education needs, and the walk sends a powerful message advocating for underserved children with limb loss.”
