Abbey Mortgage promotes autism awareness in Nigeria


Abbey Mortgage Bank recently staged a walk to promote autism awareness and emphasise the importance of understanding and supporting individuals with the disorder.

The “Abbey Walk for Autism Awareness” commemorated Autism awareness month, usually held in alignment with sustainable development goals (SDGs) with ‘Autism: Empowerment, Challenges and Victories’, to create awareness and sensitise Nigerians on the disorder to champion equal opportunities and freedom for persons living with the disorder.

The Autism awareness walk was led by Mobolaji Adewumi, MD/CEO, from the bank’s head office on Karimu Kotun to Falomo Bridge Ikoyi, through Alfred Rewane Road and back to the office.

“At Abbey Mortgage Bank, we believe in not only building dreams through our mortgage and financial services but also in supporting causes that make a meaningful difference in people’s lives,” Adewumi said.

According to him, Autism awareness is a critical topic that the bank is championing across the country.

“Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects millions worldwide and despite its prevalence, awareness, and understanding, it remains limited in many communities.

“Abbey Mortgage Bank recognises the significance of raising awareness about this important issue, understanding that education and support are crucial in improving the lives of individuals and families affected by autism,” he said.

Adewumi further said that the Autism awareness walk was part of the bank’s 32nd-anniversary commemorations, showing its commitment to not only facilitate dreams through financial solutions but also support and spread awareness for important causes.

He also said that as the bank continues to grow over the years, it remains dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals and communities, while championing causes that matter.
