Leading gaming and entertainment platform, Betway Nigeria recently donated N5 million to a Lagos State resident, Osagbemi Adebayo, to cover his medical expenses.

The entertainment platform partners Lagos State Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LSLGA) to provide medical financial assistance under its Corporate Social Responsibility project.

The aid provided represents one instance in a long line of community causes the leading brand has taken on over the past year.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Kunle Olamuyiwa, Chief Operating Officer, Betway Nigeria said, “Corporate Social Responsibility is embedded in our culture at Betway, and we have always been committed to the welfare of our customers and the communities we operate in.

We are happy any time we have the opportunity to give hope to our people, and this donation to Osagbemi through LSLGA is meant to renew hope, going a long way in helping to solve his health issues.”

The Chief Executive Officer, Lagos State Lottery Board, Mr. Bashir Are, received the donation on behalf of the beneficiary.
