As part of its commitment towards supporting Nigeria’s health care delivery system, the SIFAX Group, an indigenous group of companies with investment in Maritime, Aviation, Oil & Gas, Haulage & Logistics, Financial Services and Hospitality, has donated some items to the Apapa General Hospital.
The items include five pieces of computer laptops, six desktop computers and 18 units of wall fans.
Group Head, Corporate Communications, SIFAX Group, Olumuyiwa Akande, who represented the management at the official presentation of the equipment to the hospital, said the donation was in furtherance to the company’s philosophy of supporting critical government institutions, especially in the education and health sectors as well as providing 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.”
Chief Medical Director, Apapa General Hospital Dr. Ajibola Keshinro, while receiving the items, appreciated SIFAX Group for the kind gesture, adding that such items will upscale the hospital’s capacity to carry out its responsibilities.
He said: “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 assist the hospital to upscale is operations to digital model”.0
