consistent efforts and vigorous voluntary operations to support the
Nigerian Government and people in the fight to contain the spread of
corona virus in the country.
Sequel to extending its “Food for our Communities Campaign” to Kaduna
and Kano States last week, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc yesterday also sent
its hospital palliatives donation team to deliver hospital beds and
mattresses to isolation centres in the two States. The Julius Berger
team was led by the company’s Project Coordinator for the
Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Road construction project, Mr Ibrahim Yusuf.
The hospital beds and mattresses donation in Kaduna State took the
Julius Berger team to the office of the Secretary to the State
Government (SSG), Hassan Usman Katsina House, Kawo Kaduna, where the
Julius Berger team leader, Ibrahim Yusuf, handed the beds over to the
Permanent Secretary, Office of the SSG, Alhaji Bashir Muhammed.
The Permanent Secretary, on behalf of the Governor and people of Kaduna
State, thanked Julius Berger for the support the company offered Kaduna
State “at this critical time of the covid-19 pandemic”. Bashir commended
the company for its show of goodwill and asked the Julius Berger team to
convey “the appreciation of the Kaduna State Government and people to
the Management of Julius Berger for the company’s sensitivity, empathy
From Kaduna, the Julius Berger team travelled to Kano State where the
company also donated more hospital beds and mattresses to the Aminu Kano
Teaching Hospital. The items were handed over by Julius Berger’s team
leader Ibrahim Yusuf to the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the
hospital, Professor Abdulrahman Abba Sheshe. Yusuf said the donation of
the beds and mattresses to the hospital’s isolation centre was Julius
Berger’s sincere way of identifying with the immediate and critical
needs of the hospital and the Kano community. The CMD, speaking on
behalf of the Honourable Minister of health, the Aminu Kano Teaching
Hospital and the Kano communities, expressed gratitude for the donation
by Julius Berger. He requested the Berger team to also convey the
hospital’s sincere appreciation to the Management of Julius Berger for
the kindness of the voluntary donation, adding that it will go a long
way to assist the work of the frontline health workers in the fight to
contain the spread of the covid-19 pandemic in Kano.
Julius Berger which, amongst several other palliatives, has also donated
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to hospitals in the country, pledged
that its palliatives operations will continue to support the government
and communities, until, according to the company’s Managing Director,
Engr. Dr Lars Richter, “…the monster of covid-19 is collectively
defeated and dislodged out of our country and communities”.
