Items donated to the centre included some units of   All New Gencool Inverter Air Conditioners, Jet Cool Air Conditioners as well as over 350 treated Mosquito nets.

At the presentation ceremony, Head of Corporate Marketing, LG Electronics, West Africa Operations, Mr. Hari Elluru, stated that the company’s investment in the Nigerian communities was rubbing off positively on it which had continued to gain more visibility in the market.

“We have remained competitive, yet, improving sustainability; we have enabled investment and innovation required to deploy new technologies and to safely and responsibly develop progressive products. We strongly believe that our donation here today will aid service delivery in the hospital and provide the required enabling environment for medical personnel,” he added.

In his remark, Regional Manager, Fouani Nigeria Limited, Mr. Moustapha Khrais, added that the gesture gave the company a sense of fulfilment having impacted lives  and therefore promised to always come to the rescue of the centre when the need arises.
