Together4ALimb, the flagship Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiative of Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, was introduced to create awareness about the plight of children living with limb loss. The financial institution organises a series of activities, culminating in a walk by the employees of the institution, members of the beneficiaries’ family and other well-wishers. Through this initiative, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC has given hope to selected underprivileged children who have lost their limbs, by providing them with prosthetics.

This year, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC leveraged technology in organising the 6th edition of the programme. The event held virtually in compliance with the social distancing guidelines provided by the Government, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The institution created a Web Application to encourage interested individuals to take part in a virtual walk, thereby generating awareness about the challenges that limbless people must endure. The #Together4ALimb Web Application engendered participation from the public, while reaching a wider audience. Interested individuals logged onto the #Together4ALimb App to take and record their walks. The goal was to hit a 36-kilometre milestone in six days. Individuals could pause and pick up from where they stopped to continue the walk.

Overall, 505 people registered for the #Together4ALimb walk. A total of 2,356km was covered by the participants over a combined period of 440 hours, spread across 784 sessions.
