On its first Associations Day, BIL focused on health by inviting ten NGOs that strive to improve the quality of life of people suffering from illnesses or disabilities, and help them find employment. The NGOs presented their activities to BIL employees and at the end of the day, each association received a €5,000 cheque, totalling €50,000 in donations.
The NGOs are the following:
Marcel Leyers, CEO of BIL, commented: “The work carried out by these organisations is remarkable. It is an honour for BIL to open its doors, to welcome them so we can learn more about their activities and support them financially.”
This Associations Day is part of the bank's sustainable development strategy, which aims, in particular, to have a positive impact on the economy and local communities. Its focus on Luxembourg and support for local organisations are at the heart of its action. The bank and its employees are thus involved with numerous NGOs in the fields of education, health and the environment.
