A donation estimated at about $18,500
Estimated at $18.500 (11,100,000 CFA francs), the donation supports the Regional COVID-19 Response Committee to prepare for the management of possible severe cases of coronavirus. The grant consists of medical-technical equipment: respiratory monitoring devices, nebulizers, electrocardiogram, electric syringe pump, and others. The equipment will be used to treat people infected with the new coronavirus.
In addition, hygiene and disinfection equipment such as hydro-alcoholic solutions, liquid soap, bleach, an atomizer, a washing machine and hand-washing devices are also provided. Also, an amount of $3,340 (2 million CFA francs) was provided by the mining company to the Regional Response Committee.
Other donations were also made by the mining company
Bassory Traoré, the mine’s director of sustainable development, representing the managing director, Roxgold Sanu, as a responsible and civic-minded company, is pleased to be at the side of the administrative authorities. And in these difficult times for everyone, it has a duty to show more solidarity. That is why, after having contributed with its peers to the government’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at the national level, the Roxgold Sanu mine, in collaboration with its subcontractors AUMS, Geodrill, ATS, SGS, Nowata and Gaam, has mobilized a community support fund for the response program in its area of activity.
The recent donations, therefore, follows those already made at the communal level in Bagassi on May 9th, 2020, and at the provincial level in Boromo on May 23rd. An act of social responsibility as Bassory Traoré said. He has, as usual, urged the proper use of equipment and strict compliance with government measures to help eradicate this pandemic.
Aboubacar Sanou, president of the Boucle du Mouhoun Regional Council and vice-president of the Regional Response Committee, thanked the donor of the day on behalf of the governor of the region and urged the health services to make good use of it.
According to Christian Kompaoré, Regional Director of Health of Boucle du Mouhoun, visibly very happy, this donation from Roxgold Sanu comes to strengthen the regional management in its approach to the care of patients suffering from COVID-19. The medical surveillance equipment will help to revitalize the region’s isolation site.
Roxgold Sanu, through its community development program, works for the development of the populations in its area of activity in the fields of health, education, water and sanitation, road infrastructures, etc. In the field of health, in 2019, the company supported numerous actions such as the solar electrification of the Mana health center, the construction of a waiting room and the donation of medical equipment to the CSPS in Bagassi, support in the fight against malaria and HIV/AIDS, etc.
The donation ceremony took place under the benevolent eye of Sié Edgar Sou, governor of the Boucle du Mouhoun region, president of the COVID-19 Regional Response Committee.
