Mikano clocks 25, do­nates items to blind school

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - APPOINTMENTS - By Ade­lowo Ade­bu­miti

As part of ef­forts to up­lift the lives of the less priv­i­leges in the so­ci­ety and bring suc­cour to them, Mikano In­ter­na­tional Lim­ited has do­nated con­sum­ables in­clud­ing bags of rice, in­domies, um­brel­las and tis­sue pa­pers to Bethesda Home of the Blind.

The ges­ture was part of the com­pany’s cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) ini­tia­tive and ac­tiv­i­ties lined up to cel­e­brate Mikano’s 25 years of op­er­a­tions in the coun­try. Speak­ing at the pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony held at the school’s vo­ca­tional train­ing cen­tre in Mushin, La­gos, Head, Mar­ket­ing, Misaa Her­mes said CSR is a cru­cial ob­jec­tive of the com­pany to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of the com­mu­ni­ties within which they op­er­ate. Ac­cord­ing to her, a com­mon thread that runs through their work is to en­sure that they be­come the ref­er­ence point for the ac­com­plish­ment of suc­cess­ful so­cial ini­tia­tives that would pave the way for other or­gan­sa­tions in the area of CSR.

She said Mikano has aso im­ple­mented var­i­ous other so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives that sup­port stu­dents, Nige­rian Po­lice Force and dis­ad­van­taged mem­bers of the so­ci­ety.

Her­mes said: “By ex­tend­ing and sup­port­ing the so­ci­eties, we con­tinue to add value to the eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment of Nige­rian peo­ple.

Founder of the Home, Mrs. Chioma Ohakwe ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the com­pany and urged them to con­tinue im­pact­ing the lives of Nige­rian pos­i­tively through such ini­tia­tives.

She also ad­vised other com­pa­nies to em­u­late Mikano and sow into the lives of the less priv­i­leged.
