Preventative Health and Wellness
We are cognizant of SDG number 3 (Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages) as we believe prevention is better than cure. Currently, the world is facing an unprecedented global health crisis, COVID-19, that is spreading human suffering, destabilizing the global economy, and upsetting the lives of billions of people around the globe. In April 2020 we committed KES 100 million to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds were donated towards the government’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, which was set up by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta to mobilize resources to support the fight against this pandemic. The contribution made by NCBA provided humanitarian support for the vulnerable members of the Kenyan society.
The SDG 3 targets to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030. Our partnership with Beyond Zero Half Marathon (8th March 2020), Women for cancer, Operation Ear Drop Kenya among others has supported the banks vision of ensuring healthy lifestyles and promotes well-being as it seeks to provide greater community and household sensitization on adoption of preventive health practices/behaviors.
