In the spirit of the season, Abumet,  a member of the Julius Berger Group has donated food items and insecticide-treated nets to the less privileged in its host communities within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Some benefiting communities are Idu-Paipe, close to the Idu Railway Station, and Piwoyi Community along the Airport Road, in Abuja.

At Idu-Paipe, the company, in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), reached out to 540 households with Insecticide Treated Nets (ITN), as well as students and staff members of LEA Primary School, Idu Paipe.

Addressing pupils and staff members of the school, the Human Resources Manager, Abumet Nigeria Limited, Mr. Chime Nnabugwu, explained that the company is optimistic that the ITNs will help curb the spread of malaria within the community while reducing the number of school absenteeism caused by malaria infection.

Each student also received an Abumet branded string bag.

Head Teacher, Mr. Agyo Sabo, expressed happiness and noted that the gesture was the first of its kind since he began working at the school.

“It is very obvious from the kind of joy you see the pupils express. It means a lot to them. This is the first time we are receiving something like this from anybody since I have been here. It is also quite an honour to have the General Manager (Mr. Alexander Hausner) lead the delegation to our school. We thank Abumet and its entire management and we hope they will visit us again with more in the coming year,” Sabo said.

In Piwoyi Community, Bema Home for Orphans and the Less-Privileged received about a million naira worth of food items, toiletries, and educational materials.

The General Manager of Abumet Nigeria Limited, Mr. Alexander Hausner, handed over the educational items to each student and encouraged them to be studious and hopeful for a great future.

Receiving the other items,  Director, Bema Homes, Mr. Benedict Dzreke described the day as a special day for the orphanage.

He said: “For you, as a company, to come and put a smile on the faces of our precious children is a thing of joy. I believe that what you have done today is not a misplacement. For the gifts presented to us today, we are short of words.”
