Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc, operator of the NNPC/SEPLAT Joint Venture, has launched the inaugural edition of its Eye Can See and Safe Motherhood signature Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes for communities situated in the operational area of its Eastern Assets at Izombe, Imo State.

The programme was initiated six years ago in Sapele, Delta State, the operational base of SEPLAT’s Western Assets.

The eastern launch on Friday, February 9, 2018, witnessed a large turnout of members of the host communities comprising men, women and children who came to receive medical care.

For the Eye Can See Programme, beneficiaries had their eyes tested, received prescribed glasses and some had surgeries for cataract related visual impairments. The Safe Motherhood Programme saw beneficiaries, pregnant women and nursing mothers, gain insights on danger signs during pregnancy as well as nutrition in pregnancy. They were also presented with Safe Motherhood kits made up of a maternity bag, vitamin supplements, treated mosquito nets and all medical items required for safe delivery.

In her remarks at the event, Wife of Imo State Governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Nneoma Okorocha, commended SEPLAT for the CSR initiatives which, according to her, have “undoubtedly impacted the lives of members of the host communities.” She urged the company to sustain the programmes towards deepening its contribution to the development of Imo State in the health sub-sector.

SEPLAT’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Austin Avuru, while speaking at the event, emphasised that the host communities are critical stakeholders of the company regarding its business which underscores the need to execute the CSR health programmes. Mr. Avuru assured that the company is firmly committed to sustaining the CSR health programmes and other initiatives targeted at the socio-economic development of Imo State.

The event had in attendance traditional rulers, community leaders, key government functionaries and management/staff of SEPLAT.
