BUA cement donates N10m worth of drugs to 7 PHCs in Sokoto

BUA Cement Company has donated drugs and other hospital consumables worth N10 million to seven Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in Wamakko Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

The company had earlier built schools, offered scholarships, distributed uniforms to pupils, trained women on business skills and supported health facilities in host communities as part of its corporate social responsibility.

The Director, Marketing Services, BUA Cement, Mr Abdulganiyyu Yusuf, said the gesture was aimed at complementing the efforts of the Sokoto State Government in enhancing healthcare delivery.

The Assistant Director, Administration and Corporate Services of BUA Cement, Mr Sada Suleiman said the company was also assisting the state in the provision of potable water, electrification, rural roads, healthcare, education, women and youth empowerment.

He said the assistance was expanded to new PHCs in Gidan Bailu besides PHCs in Gidan Kusu, Wajenka, Sabon Garin Alu, Arkilla, Police Mobile Barrack, and Kalambaina primary health centres.

Suleiman assured them that more community support programmes would be undertaken by the company.

According to him, the cement company would partner the state’s Ministries of Health and Education to identify areas of need for prompt intervention.

“At the moment, we are paying scholarship for students’ schooling in various higher institutions across the country from these host communities,’’ he said.

The Executive Secretary, Sokoto State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SSPHCDA), Mr Abdullahi Romo said the intervention was strategic as it would enhance access to healthcare services and significantly reduce the burden on families.

He, therefore, warned hospital workers against misusing the items adding that a list of all items would be obtained and track distribution to needed persons in the facilities.
