The Lagos State COVID-19 response team has received a contribution of five ambulances from BUA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of BUA Group, one of Africa’s leading foods and infrastructure conglomerate.

The donation was in addition to a cash sum of N200 million earlier donated to the Lagos State Government by the foundation.

The Group Chief Operating Officer, BUA Group, Chimaobi Madukwe, while presenting the COVID-19 response ambulances and cheque to the First Lady of Lagos State, Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, commended the effort of the Lagos State Government in curbing the effects of the virus.

Mr Madukwe also added that BUA will continue to support various effort across Nigeria to stop the virus.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, we felt a responsibility to support the state government and the people during these times.

“We are proud to be associated with the Lagos State government in this fight against the coronavirus. We are keen on contributing our quota where needed to end the pandemic and these ambulances are to ensure the people of Lagos state get the best medical attention.

“We are working tirelessly with various stakeholders to further identify places where help is needed and had since set aside a grant in addition to this cash donation and 5 ambulances from which some projects are being carried out”.
