Addressing residents of the community, Albert Saltson, the Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, said the project was part of the bank’s social contribution, as well as supporting the government’s effort in ensuring sustainable water management.

He said the bank’s water project worth one hundred and ten thousand dollars was aimed at providing water in ten communities in Freetown and Bo.


Commending the Standard Chartered Bank, Honorable Chernoh Bah of Constituency one hundred and ten, which covers the Brookfields community described the project as timely, especially when residents of the community had been finding it difficult to access potable water.
