Network for Development Foundation, a Kano based Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), has donated sanitisers, metal and plastic hand washing containers to the state government to support campaign against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mr Hamid Ali, the Secretary of the organisation, while presenting the items on Friday in Kano, said the gesture aimed at stemming the spread of the pandemic.
He said that the items would be stationed at markets and other public places to prevent spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.
Also speaking, Dr Kabiru Getso, the State Commissioner for Environment, commended the gesture, adding it would go a long way to combat the spread of Coronavirus disease in the state.
Getso assured of the utilisation of the materials, noting that hand washing was a key factor in curbing the spread of the disease.
He, therefore, called on individuals and organisations, to emulate the gesture and contribute in the fight against the pandemic.
“Government alone cannot fight the Pandemic because it is ravaging the entire globe, so there is need for a collaborative response from all meaning and wealthy individuals, groups and companies to help in curtailing the spread of the virus,” he added.
