Five public schools benefit from Bastion Health CSR Project

Five public schools benefit from Bastion Health CSR Project

As part of its plans to positively impact and bring about change in its environment, particularly healthcare in the education sector in Nigeria, Bastion Health, through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, kicked off and commissioned its outreach to rehabilitate and improve the standard of health facilities of schools in Lagos State, paying special attention to public schools.

In the two-day commissioning event that took place recently, the Health Maintenance Organisation located in the heart of Victoria Island visited Archbishop Taylor Memorial Nursery and Primary School, Victoria Island; Gbagada Comprehensive Junior High School, Gbagada; Araromi Nursery and Primary School, Gbagada; Victoria Island Junior School, Victoria Island; and Lanre Awolokun High School, Gbagada to commission renovated health infrastructure and donate medical materials to the schools.

Findings from the visits to several public schools in Victoria Island and Gbagada axis revealed that these schools required several essential health amenities and infrastructure to support as the first point of call in addressing basic healthcare needs.

The absence of these basic amenities can be a hindrance to good healthcare administration for students.

“We are pleased about this project which we believe will provide the much-needed basic healthcare to the children who are our future leaders. Bastion Health will support at least one underserved school in different local government areas in Nigeria over the next five years and this support will be in the form of renovations, donations, and maintenance of the health facilities in public schools,” she said.

She added that Bastion Health vision was to make healthcare accessible and affordable for all.
