COVID-19: Power firm distributes 100 hand-washing machines

A power distribution firm, BEDC Electricity Plc, on Tuesday said it had commenced the distribution of 100 specialised hand-washing machines to federal and state government hospitals, agencies and public institutions.

A statement by the BEDC management said the company was also covering markets and communities in its franchise states of Delta, Edo, Ondo and Ekiti, as part of efforts towards promoting safety practices among the people.

It noted that the gesture was to demonstrate the company’s sensitivity to residents of its coverage areas over the hardship occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic by promoting hygiene habits.

“The donation, which commenced in Benin, Edo State, comprised 30 pieces of automatic and manual hand-washing machines to Edo, 30 to Delta, and 40 to Ondo and Ekiti states, respectively, and was in addition to the earlier food palliatives donated to the franchise states to cushion the effect of the global pandemic,” the statement added.
