In Health, Kaduna State is working towards restructuring the Primary Health Care delivery such that every child, every woman has access to good medical facilities and this is where the role of Nigerian Breweries has become even more significant and the Government of Kaduna State acknowledges this contribution.

The Government on its own is working towards the actualization of Two hundred and fifty five Primary (255) Health Centers to be situated in all the Council wards of the State. The Nigerian Breweries has helped Government actualize its goal of Primary Health Care delivery‘’

Earlier at the commissioning and handover of the Ultra-Modern scanning machine at St. Gerald’s Hospital, the Managing Director of Nigerian Breweries Plc., Mr. Johan Doyer represented by the Brewery Manager for Kaduna, Mr. Abbey Ajayi, said that ‘’Heineken Africa Foundation was established by our parent company,

Heineken International of the Netherlands, to enhance the quality of health of the people who live
in sub-Sahara African communities where Heineken is active by
financially supporting relevant health projects and health-related
education”.
‘’By providing this Ultra-Modern X-Ray machine to St. Gerards
Hospital, NB Plc is trying to improve the Health Care delivery service
in the State. This way, we aim to save more lives by elevating the
standard of medical care in this great hospital.’’ Ajayi added.
Also speaking at the commissioning of Kudenda Primary Health Center,
Mr. Abbey Ajayi affirmed that ‘’the entire Kudendan Community is
very dear to us, being our host community in which we operate our
business without any hindrance. So we should reciprocate by
identifying with the cause of the well-being of our good host
community”.
‘’It is my believe that this project, coming as we celebrate the
Centenary of our dear State, will be historic to the health center and
would be put into good use for the great people of Kudendan as well as
to mankind, going by the important nature of this facility in saving
lives, the project which we are commissioning here today are
construction of two blocks, renovation of one block and toilet
facility, supply of hospital furniture and provision of borehole’’,
Ajayi stressed.
Giving the analysis of Nigerian Breweries health interventions to
Kaduna State in recent times, the Public Affairs Manager, North, Mr.
Danjuma John-Ekele, said ‘’ In 2009, Nigerian Breweries built and
donated a fully furnished hospital ward at the V V F Centre at Hajia
Sawaba General Hospital, Zaria Kaduna State to improve healthcare
delivery in the Northern region. In 2011, a mini-theater facility and
a female orthopedic ward were donated to St. Gerards Catholic Hospital
Kaduna. In 2013, we donated a CT Scan machine. Today, we handed over
an ultra-modern X-ray machine at St. Gerards before coming here for
the commissioning of another health project. Like our other health
sector interventions across the country, it is our hope that these
gestures would go a long way in providing succor and further take care
of the increase in the number of patients in the hospital and also
help in reducing the number of referred cases in the Kudendan
community’’

Care-taker Chairman, Mr. Emmanuel Abashia, who is Director Health
Services in the local Government, Chief of Kudendan, Gabriel Galadima

Breweries stressing that other companies should emulate their kind
gesture and furthermore, called on the State Government to make a law
for other companies to institute their own CSR projects annually.
