--Donates thousands of medical and preventive materials to four institutions
To support the government's effort to fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the management and board of directors of the Monrovia Breweries Incorporated (MBI), on Tuesday, July 6, began the distribution of consignment of medical and preventive materials to four institutions in Monrovia.
Items provided include about seven thousand nose masks, 1,500 bottles of Clorox, five oxygen tanks, and two-thousand cartons of detergent soap among others.
The distribution, which commenced at the company office in Duala, Bushrod Island, benefited the Redemption and the 14 Military Hospital, while the Ministry of Health took away the oxygen tanks for onward distribution to some hospitals that are in need. New Kru Town also received a set of the donated items.
Stephen G. Scott, Human Resources Manager at MBI, said the donation was in response to a request from the government and community members within its operational area to support the fight against the pandemic.
Mr. Scott further revealed that the initiative is also part of their corporate social responsibility to the government and its citizens.
“As we remain committed to assisting the government, our board of directors, management and staff of the MBI have again decided to make a generous contribution to the fight against the pandemic,” said Scott.
“This is our usual undertaking to assist the government in any way possible to combat this virus,” he said while presenting the items to the acting administrator of the Redemption Hospital.
Also speaking, Thelma R. Dennis-Woods, Sales, Marketing and Customer Relations Manager, said the donation made on July 6 is not only about MBI’s corporate social responsibility, but as an organization or big institution in the country, it is their responsibility to contribute to government efforts whenever there is a crisis.
“So, we have taken the first step and we are urging every institution or company in the private sector to join in this fight to save lives,” Mrs. Dennis-Woods said.
In her remark, Facia McCauley, Acting administrator of the Redemption Hospital, expressed her sincere gratitude to the management and Board of Directors for the enormous support given to the hospital and other institutions in these difficult times.
