COVID-19: Stallion Group delivers free Rice, Fish to hospitals

…Provides Buses in Lagos

True to its pledge to extend its hand of kindness and support to the fight against the spread of the dreaded Corona virus (Covid-19) in Nigeria, the Stallion group has commenced the delivery of free rice and fish to state hospitals nationwide dedicated to tackling the scourge.

It would be recalled that Stallion group, with an impressive presence in Nigeria, was one of the first conglomerates in the country to announce its support to the different levels of government in the fight against spread of Covid-19.

Following this, the Stallion group had put together a well oriented and trained team to make good its pledge, and has started the deliveries in hospitals in Lagos. 77 State hospitals in Nigeria are already registered as a part of this programme.

Appreciating the importance transportation will play in a state of restricted movements, the group, apart from delivering free rice and fish for three months to all COVID – 19 hospitals, has deployed staff buses to ferry health care workers to hospitals dedicated to COVID – 19 treatment in Lagos.

Frontline health workers are to be provided with dedicated pick up and drop services during the FG’s directives on enhanced community quarantine. The buses will be attached to the COVID-19 dedicated hospitals for the next three months to ensure safer and comfortable transportation of the healthcare providers.

The free staff bus service along with a dedicated driver and fuelling is implemented in cooperation and close coordination with the Lagos State Government.

Chairman of Stallion group, Mr. Sunil Vaswani, stated that “These are exceptionally difficult times and urgent emergency resources have to be deployed to cope with the needs of affected states and support their health care systems. At Stallion group, our top priority is the health and safety of our employees, customers and our community”.
