Stanbic IBTC 6th Together4ALimb Walk to hold virtually this November

Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, a member of Standard Bank Group, has continued in its promise to provide support for children living without limbs through its Together4ALimb initiative.

Announcing the date for this year’s edition via its twitter page, the company said: “It’s been six years of walking #Together4ALimb and we appreciate your unwavering love and commitment. On 14 November 2020, we will be walking virtually to raise awareness for children living with limb loss!”

The initiative focuses on transforming the lives of indigent children suffering limb losses, either through accidents, mismanaged injuries or congenital issues/birth defects. Such children are offered prostheses and educational trust funds by Stanbic IBTC, effectively addressing both their health and education needs.

In addition to providing prosthetic limbs, the bank also provides educational funding to those faced with physical disabilities.

The initiative, now in its sixth year, is Stanbic’s flagship CSI initiative, through which it provides prosthetic limbs to children from underserved communities suffering from limb loss. The 2019 edition, held in November last year, was flagged off by Yinka Sanni, Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC.

The Together4ALimb scheme has provided prosthetics for 30 beneficiaries. All recipients under the scheme will have their prosthetic limbs replaced annually until they are 18.
