Julius Berger donates palliative to Abuja-Kano project community, hospital
In continuation of its COVID-19 palliative donations, leading engineering construction company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, has donated large quantities of clinical beds to more healthcare facilities and communities along the Abuja-Kano project.
The company had earlier made donations of food supplies, personal protective equipment, clinical beds and mattresses as well as ambulances among other items to local councils, communities, hospitals and COVID-19 isolation centres across the country since the pandemic began.
A press statement by the firm, yesterday, said the company’s hospital palliative donation team from the Abuja-Kano road project, led by Yusuf Ibrahim, in fulfillment of the Managing Director, Dr Lars Richter’s pledge, to assist the government in the fight to contain the spread and impact of coronavirus, donated more hospital beds to the Umar Musa Yar’Adua Memorial Hospital, Wuse.
The statement disclosed that the team was received by the Head of Clinicals, Dr Richard A. Agba, who thanked Julius Berger for the gesture.
The team, which also visited and donated more hospital beds to the Primary Healthcare Centre at Jere, Kargako Local Government Area in Kaduna State, were received by the Wazirin (District head) of Jere, Alhaji Abdullahi Daniya.
On his part, the Divisional Manager of the Abuja-Kano Road project, Mr Benjamin Bott, said the company’s real interest in the welfare and wellbeing of its operational communities was a cherished historical corporate tradition. “The voluntary CSR duty has become even more compelling by the unfortunate threat of coronavirus, which we must all jointly, and to the best of our ability, fight and defeat,” Bott said.
