Community Health Care

Community Health Care

The well-being of the people in our host community is important to us at Midwestern Oil and Gas knowing that the good health of the people would increase their productive capacity which in turn would galvanise the local economy.

With this realisation, we invest in the health sector via several internal projects like primary healthcare facility constructions as well as our annual medical outreach. Midwestern also champions and sponsors several worthy health-related courses that are designed to improve the general state of health of Nigerians.
