What a commendable act of generosity by a great philanthropist, Aliko Dangote who through his foundation, Aliko Dangote Foundation (ADF) pledged N200 million to support Federal Government’s effort at containing the spread of Covid-19 (CoronaVirus) in the country.

 The Chief Executive Officer of Aliko Dangote Foundation, Ms Zouera Youssoufou, in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos, said the donation was part of the Foundation’s cardinal objective. She also said that the foundation had earmarked N124 million to support facilities that would assist, prevent, assess and respond to health events at Points of Entry to ensure National Health Security.

According to her, other areas the foundation are supporting include; surveillance and epidemiology- where facilities worth N36 million will be provided by the foundation to support government’s effort. She said that the foundation would also donate N48 million for case management and training of health workers.

Youssoufou recalled that the Aliko Dangote Foundation has been supportive in some national emergency cases. The foundation committed about N1 billion to the fight against Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Africa. She said that the foundation supported Nigerian government’s Ebola containment efforts through investments that built resilience and strengthened Nigeria’s health system in a manner expected to endure beyond Ebola crisis.

However, the foundation during the Ebola crisis supported government through provision of funding for the establishment of the National Ebola Emergency Operations Centre (EEOC) in Yaba, Lagos. She said that the foundation provided 12 units of Thermal Cameras across Nigeria’s International Airports with training for 160 staff of the Federal Ministry of Health, Port Health Services, on using cameras.
