The United Nations Children’s Fund just accepted a $170,000 contribution from IHS Nigeria, the biggest subsidiary of IHS Towers. According to the IHS, the contribution is meant to directly aid the provision of medical essentials like test kits and personal protective equipment, which will be made available in regions that are hit by the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
IHS Nigeria’s Chief Executive Officer, Mohamad Darwish had this to say, “The provision of medical test kits and the PPEs to the government through UNICEF underscores our support for nationwide relief efforts during these unprecedented times in modern history, and we all have an important role to play in protecting the health and well-being of everyone.”
“We appreciate the government’s interventions so far and are proud to work with both the government and international humanitarian organizations to ensure that critical stakeholders such as the front-line staff are protected during this crisis, and to enable more tests to be carried out in order to help save lives and ultimately defeat the pandemic.”
