As part of its corporate responsibilities, MMM has donated the sum of N1.2m to Kunak Foundation, a non-governmental organization, based in Kaduna, Kaduna State.
Speaking with newsmen on Wednesday, the country director of the foundation, Barrister Bavoshiya Gloria Nyan, said the generous donation from MMM was used to offset the medical bills of patients battling various ailments in three hospitals located in Kaduna State.
According to Nyan, a total number of 36 patients, some battling cancer, benefited from the cash largess.
She said the hospitals visited by the foundation in conjunction with some MMM participants include: St Gerald Hospital, Kachia Road, Kaduna; Gwamna Awan General Hospital, Kakuri, Kaduna and General Hospital Sabon Tasha, Kaduna.
Aside cash donations, the foundation also donated MMM branded colorful T-shirts bearing ‘MMM Hospital Support Team’ to some patients and hospital staff on the day of the visitation.
Nyan thanked MMM for the cash and material intervention, saying it will go a long way in helping the beneficiaries to offset some of their medical bills.
An MMM participant, who pleaded anonymity because she was not authorized to speak on the issue, said the cash donation was part of the interventions of the body to help the less-privileged in the society.
MMM is an online community where participants, who freely register on their volition, donate and receive cash gifts without any physical contact between the donors and the recipients.
Although the online site for Nigerians was shut down in December, 2016 over what some insiders termed ‘irregularities’, it has since opened to participants willing to provide or receive financial help.
