Cornerstone Donates Medical Consumables to Kirikiri Correctional Centre

As part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, Cornerstone Insurance Plc recently embarked on a medical outreach to the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Kirikiri, Lagos.

The company donated food stuffs, toiletries, and medical supplies to the Maximum and Female centers, as well as other hygiene products through the Cornerstone Insurance Plc Foundation. The Cornerstone staff were joined by a medical team of two doctors and four nurses from Sirona Hospital, FESTAC, who were on hand to carry out basic medical checks on the inmates and prescribe medications where necessary.

The Group Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Cordelia Ekeocha said the initiative is to positively impact the lives of the inmates this Yuletide season.

“The medical consumables and other hygiene products were donated to make sure the inmates were comfortable and to help maintain a healthy environment. The medical outreach is among series of activities carried out by our foundation.

Speaking during the presentation, the company’s Head, Financial Institution, Eunice Ogboli, stated that the gesture to the correctional facility is to give the inmates some comfort this festive period.

“We are not just in the business of insuring lives and properties, but also to touch lives through the provision of basic welfare items”.

Eunice Ogboli, head, financial institutions, Cornerstone Insurance plc, said the insurer through its foundation likes to touch lives apart from insuring lives and properties.

“This is something we do often and have decided to extend it to them so they can have some little comfort during the festive period to impact their lives,” she said.

Other CSR initiatives of the organisation include donation of English Language and mathematics textbooks to select schools; safe route 2 school; COVID-19 sensitisation program, among others.
