Sterling Bank provides free breast cancer screening for women

Sterling Bank, through its ‘One Woman Proposition,’ has organised a free breast cancer screening and education event for women in the Lekki area of Lagos State, as a way of giving back to its host community.


Speaking at the event, Group Head, Products and Proposition with Sterling  photographBank, Gbenga Adegoke, said the bank is partnering with Quality and Selfless Empowerment Foundation (QSE), owned by Olori Sekinat Elegushi, because health is one the five sectors of the Nigerian economy that Sterling Bank is focusing investments in under its HEARTS of Sterling, adding that the other sectors are education, agriculture, renewable energy and transportation.


Adegoke said the bank through the programme is targeting women who do not have access to quality healthcare and they are also creating enlightenment regarding cancer, remarking that they also want the opportunity to render banking services to the unbanked community by granting them loans, among others.


Also speaking, the Head of ‘One Woman Proposition’ at the bank, Mrs. Ifunaya Ugboko, said the bank decided on breast cancer at this time for its health outreach because October is a month that has been set aside to create sustained awareness on cancer and cancer-related ailments
