Power distribution company, Ikeja Electric Plc (IE) has concluded plans to stage a medical outreach for communities within its network, in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives. The event is in collaboration with one of its business partners, XT Monitor Ltd.
The activity, which is slated for the 9th and 10th of October, 2017, will hold at the IE’s Oshodi Model Business Unit located along Okota Road and the Egbeda Undertaking Office, located on Idimu Road, by Alaguntan Bus Stop, respectively.
The outreach will be facilitated by a US Medical Mission, comprising 11 medical specialists based in the USA and the goal of the project is to provide free medical treatment up to 2000 residents.
The scope of the medical mission is to prevent and manage non-communicable diseases with special attention to Diabetes and Hypertension.
Speaking on the initiative, Head of Corporate Communications for IE, Felix Ofulue, called on members of the communities within its network, especially those living in Oshodi and Egbeda, to take advantage of the exercise which will hold from 10am till 4pm at Oshodi Model Business Unit on the 9th and the following day at the Egbeda Undertaking Office, same time.
According to him, the exercise was one of the methods adopted to assure its esteemed customers that they are more than just mere electricity connections.
“This noble initiative, once again, demonstrates IE’s commitment to the wellbeing of customers within her network. You will recall that we recently engaged on quite a number of health interventions in our communities in the recent past and we are sincerely hoping that this intervention can act as a catalyst to stir other Institutions to rise up to the challenge of providing affordable healthcare in Nigeria,” he said.
