As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Revolution Plus Group, through its charity arm, Chris Bamidele Onalaja Foundation (CBOF), has offered free medical care to over 1,000 persons during its medical outreach to Ogulu Base, Osoroko Community in Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos State.

The firm said a healthy community could be guaranteed through collective efforts where everyone contributes to society.
The event also featured medical consultation and check-up, dental check, blood pressure examination, malaria test/ treatment.

Dr. Olayiwola Elisha Opeyemi, who led the dental team, said “coming down to provide this is very essential to a local population, where many people cannot afford the needed medical care.”

He explained that many of those attended had bad dental conditions and had never visited a dental clinic, adding that a lot of work still needs to be done in the area of public health.

The firm’s Head Corporate Communication, Bands and Media, Razak Adedoyin, said one of its focuses is to give back to society community in its belief in touching the lives of everyone.

He stated: “Through CBOF, we are currently touching the lives of people in four communities in the Ibeju-Lekki axis and this is just the beginning, because we intend to go to other places.”

A beneficiary and the wife of the traditional ruler of the community, Olori Sarah Arinola Oyiri, said: “I appreciate the Foundation for the gesture, because many cannot afford treatment and had to cage themselves in until it gets out of their control. But coming here without asking the people for a penny is commendable.”
