Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has described its collaboration with the Bako Kontagora Foundation to de-worm 5, 000 school children in Kano communities as an impressive way of commencing its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in 2019.
In a statement by the firm’s spokesman, Mohammed Kandi, it quoted the Head of Corporate Communication, Sani Bala Sani, as saying “we are proudly excited to key into this de-worming exercise for a simple fact that, its in line with our CSR principle of providing support to the downtrodden.”
Kandi, who disclosed the de-worming exercise kick-started at Project and Model primary schools in Bebeji Local Government Area, said the exercise would be replicated in Shekar Barde SPS (Kumbotso LGA), Zaura Babba CPS (Ungogo LGA), Bagwai SPS ( Bagwai LGA), Shehu Shanono SPS ( Shanono LGA) and Mariri IDP in the ancient city of Kano.
He also informed that, in line with the company’s quest to improving the health status of the rural dwellers, it had assisted the communities with at least four thousand bottles of table water that is being utilised in the ongoing de-worming exercise.
According to him, “this de-worming exercise is apt considering the fact that it came up at the time our company had concluded arrangements on rolling out its 2019 CSR, and this only means there is more of such activities from KEDCO throughout the year.”
Kandi also said KEDCO management was committed to empowering lives and enabling possibilities in its coverage area and beyond.
