The company had made series of important corporate social responsibility contributions including food supplies, personal protective equipment, and mattress donations as well as ambulance vehicle, amongst others to Local Councils, communities, hospitals; and government-nominated COVID-19 isolation centres across the country.
Julius Berger, in fulfillment of the company’s Managing Director, Dr Lars Richter’s pledge to continue to assist the government and people of Nigeria to the best of its ability in the fight to contain the spread and impact of COVID-19, again last Monday, donated large quantities of needed beds to more health care facilities.
The Julius Berger hospital palliatives donation team from the Abuja-Kano Road project, led by Yusuf Ibrahim, again donated more hospital beds to the Umar Musa Yar’Dua Memorial Hospital, Wuse, Niger State.
The team was received by the Head of Clinicals, Dr Richard A. Agba. He on behalf of the hospital thanked the company for its goodwill and proactive corporate social responsibility gesture.
The Julius Berger team also visited and donated more hospital beds to the Primary Health Care Centreat Jere, Kargako Local Government Area in Kaduna State, where the Wazirin (District head) of Jere, Alhaji Abdullahi Daniya was on hand to receive the Palliatives Donations Team.
The Divisional Manager of the AKR project, Mr Benjamin Bott said the company’s real interest in the welfare and well being of its operational communities is a cherished historical corporate tradition, and the commitment of the executive management of the company to upholding that tradition is a continuing and solemn duty of all operatives of Julius Berger.
