A hospital and orphanage in East Nigeria have welcomed a donation of PPE from Oga Projects.
The charity and community department of OgaBet gifted the institutions PPE packs to combat the Coronavirus.
Abakpa Health Centre Enugu and the Enugu Nigerian Red Cross were the recipients of the donations.
The packs included gloves, soaps and masks. The Red Cross also received tissues and food in a show of further support from Oga Projects.
A spokesman for Oga Projects said: “The last 12 months have been very challenging for everyone. The pandemic has changed our way of life. Sadly, it is not over yet and we wanted to do all we can to help those in need.
“The frontline workers at the hospital have put their health at risk to care for others.
The orphanage is doing a brilliant job of giving young people the life they deserve. We could not be happier to help them and give something back to them.”
On top of these donations, all employees at OgaBet HQ were given masks and sanitizer to keep them protected from the virus.
At the time of writing there have been over 167,000 COVID-19 cases in Nigeria. Sadly, over 2,000 have died.
Do your part to combat the virus. Remember to wash hands regularly and maintain social distancing where possible.
