Salam Takaful Insurance Company Limited has donated the sum of N10million naira to the Kano state Fund Raising Committee on Covid-19.
The company also offered Takaful life cover to the value of N40million for healthcare workers directly involved in the care of Covid-19 patients.
The state commissioner for Information and member of the committee, Muhammad Garba, announced the donation while giving updates on the activities of the committee, in a statement issued on Sunday in Kano.
He said this is to help in alleviating the effects of the global pandemic.
He said the donation, which was contained in a letter addressed to the Chairman of the committee, Yahuza Bello, was jointly signed by the Chairman and Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Misbahu Muhammad Bashir and Abdul Kassim.
He said this is also part of the company’s civic social responsibility.
Garba appealed to organizations and wealthy individuals within and outside the state to donate generously towards the committee set up to seek and collect donations in cash or kind and distribute same to those in need so as to cushion the harsh effect of the measures being taken by government against the spread of Covid-19 in Kano.
He said anyone willing to donate to the committee in cash should pay/transfer to this account: Kano State COVID-19 Support, UBA, Account No: 1022751785, while donations in kind are also collected at a warehouse at number 94, Maganda Road and Kano State Government Printing Press, Emir’s Palace.
