MTN Foundation Nigeria yesterday donated multi-million naira hospital equipment to Federal Teaching Hospital Gombe.
The equipment includes two sets of dental chairs, ENT console treatment unit and a set of laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
Executive Secretary of the foundation, Mrs. Odunayo Sanya, said MTN is driven by a policy that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern connected life.
“And when we talk of a modern connected life, it is beyond the glitters and the voice because we believe that the success of our business is tied to the wellbeing of the communities. This is evident in the annual dedicated commitment of one percent of MTN profit after tax to the MTN foundation.
“Today, we are grateful to the management of the Teaching Hospital and the people of Gombe State. The MTN Foundation has actually been partnering with Gombe State in the past. We have been present in Gombe State through the upgrading of Primary Health Care centres in Dukku, Shongom and Biliri local government areas, through the donation of furniture to schools in Funaksye Local Government Area, through installation of solar-powered boreholes in Balanga and Kaltungo local government areas and the donations to various orphanages in Gombe, Kwami and Akko local government areas,” she said.
