Improving Healthcare

There are no translations available.

Health is the key to a happy life. Therefore, we participate in and often implement health campaigns that generate health awareness in our communities and help them prevent and fight diseases and sicknesses:

  • Comium led ‘Iris’ in Côte d’Ivoire, a children’s vaccination campaign to help fight meningitis and typhoid; while donating 9,000,000 CFA to UNICEF for further campaigns.
  • A ‘Fun Day’ was organized by Comium for more than 3,000 sick and underprivileged children in Abidjan. The children were invited to spend a day at the park whereby Comium organized some fun activities to entertain them, and offered them gifts and prizes, always with the aim of putting a smile on their beautiful faces.
  • Comium partnered with the Côte d’Ivoire Government and organized an awareness campaign day on how to prevent and fight Tuberculosis. We also contributed to the rehabilitation of the Pediatric Center at the CHR Yamoussoukro.
  • In Sierra Leone, Comium supported Fight against Malaria Day by engaging in awareness campaigns and by sending Bulk SMS messages to all our customers. As part of our support we also distributed t-shirts during the seminars which targeted thousands of Sierra Leoneans.
  • In our endeavor to help in the rehabilitation of the Comium Ward (Eye and Dental Clinic), Comium participated in September 2008 in supplying the clinic with basic items such as toiletries, bed sheets, TV sets, DVDs, fridges, etc.
  • Comium helped mark two historic milestones in the history of The Gambia, as we were there to witness the birth of the first and second sets of triplets in 2008.  In recognition of these historic events and to relieve two desperate mothers who had pleaded to the nation for assistance upon delivering her triplets, we comforted Mrs. Modou Touray and Mrs. Abbie Jallow by providing them with financial assistance in addition to baby items and other necessities for their beautiful babies.

 

   

Fighting Poverty

  • To help bring a smile to the less fortunate, Comium signed a partnership agreement with the Union of Non Governmental Organisations (NGO) in Côte d’Ivoire (UOCI) to engage in helping the Government reduce poverty. Under this agreement, Comium has commited to funding and developing sustainable social programs that help alleviate the poverty rate in the country and generate employment opportunities for the less privileged.
  • Comium assisted the SOS Children’s Village in The Gambia by providing a whole variety of day-to-day necessities and little luxuries including bags of rice and sugar, t-shirts, school bags, MP3 players, radios, etc.  In addition, bags of cement were also donated to the villages to help renovate residences, helping alleviate community difficulties wherever we can.
  • In recognition of the Holy month of Ramadan, Comium offered gratuitous Iftar meals on major roadways in The Gambia.  This was a first-of-its-kind initiative that entailed the distribution of free meal packs comprising rice, dates, water and a fruit.  There is no more meaningful time than Ramadan to give back to our wonderful communities.
