SIFAX group has donated some items to the Apapa General Hospital.
Philip Olawumi Ojo, Officer, Corporate Communications of the conglomerate said this in a statement on Friday.
Tojo said that the items donated to the hospital include: 5 laptops, 6 desktop computers and 18 wall fans.
At the official handover and presentation of the equipment to the hospital’s management, Olumuyiwa Akande, Group Head, Corporate Communications, SIFAX Group, said the donation of the items was in furtherance of the company’s philosophy of supporting critical government institutions, especially in the education and health sectors as well as providing a better access to health care for Nigerians.
He said: “SIFAX Group believes that without good health, it will be difficult for Nigerians to be productive and make giant strides in their different endeavours. Our public health institutions are important in delivering this health care and that is the reason we decided to support the Apapa General Hospital in order to improve the quality of the hospital’s service.
“It is also part of our philosophy to give back to the society in any way we can because we know that government alone cannot single handedly meet all the needs of the society. Corporate organisations and public-spirited individuals have a critical role to play in this regard.”
Responding, Dr. Ajibola Keshinro, Chief Medical Director, Apapa General Hospital, appreciated SIFAX Group for the kind response, adding such items will upscale the hospital’s capacity to respond well to its responsibilities.
“We are deeply grateful to SIFAX Group for the items donated. It is our wish that other organisations will also take a cue and support the good work we are doing at Apapa General Hospital.
The computers will especially help our e-health project, an initiative of the Lagos State government designed to digitalise our operations”, he said.
