All is set for commissioning of the multi- million naira state-of-the-art private wards project embarked upon by Fidson Healthcare Plc as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme at the Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta.

The facility, according to sources, to the tune of N50 million, is intended to provide high degree comfort and privacy to high profile individuals and professionals during their medical treatment at the Centre. Revenue so generated from the facility will be used to provide subsidised medical services for the less privileged.

The project currently at 90 per cent completion, involved the company commencing work on roads around Obanikoro as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility. Roads rehabilatated include Ilojo Crescent, Olatunde Ayoola Street and Oyefeso Avenue

The road project which is in line with the company’s corporate policy is billed for completion in the next one month.

Speaking at the flag-off of the rehabilitation work, the Chief Executive of Fidson, Mr Fidelis Ayebae, noted that the CSR initiative was informed by the company’s policy which places much premium on peoples’ lives.

Ayebae maintained that “We believe that a good road network could add value to the lives of the people of our immediate community”.

Interestingly, these CSR efforts clearly appear all encompassing, affecting all areas of need of host communities. Such could be seen in Ogun State where the organization has comfortably engrained itself in the hearts of the people.

Other community projects embarked by the company include; two kilometre standard drainage in Sango Otta, borehole water for two communities, Mosimi and Otta all in Ogun State.

Ayebae said, “This was in a bid to help the community solve its threatening flood problems. Also in Lagos, the Children Development Centre (CDC), Surulere has also benefited from the goodwill of the company. Infrastructural facilities worth over N1 million was donated to the centre in Surulere, Lagos to assist the centre in its task of taking care of children with various degrees of disabilities.

“What informed our decision is our strong desire to assist children with down syndromes to be gradually integrated into the society.”
