The Badminton Federation of Nigeria (BFN) has received 4,000 face masks and 11 infrared thermometers from two Chinese groups- Beijing Zhonglian Zhongchen Commercial Service Center (BZZ) and Global-Hint Consulting Company Limited (GHCCL) – that have been in partnership with the Federation since 2018.
The donation is to prepare the federation for the eventual return to competitive outings. These will also help meet the requirements and protocols rolled out for the gradual return to training and competitions.
The President of the Badminton Federation of Nigeria, Francis Orbih expressed his federation’s delight and appreciation on receiving the items and thanked the Chinese groups on behalf of the Board and the badminton family.
He said such timely interventions are indeed welcomed and promised that the items would be judiciously used in the face of the deadly scourge, the COVID-19.
He further appealed to other corporate organizations to emulate the kind gesture of these organizations by supporting the Federation in its quest to return players to the courts and resume its activities.
