May & Baker’s profile as a company that responds to the needs of society is well known. We support society through corporate sponsorships and donations to individuals, professional, governmental, and non-governmental bodies.
For several years we encouraged scholarship and research activities in our nation’s universities while affording much-needed international exposure to Nigerian academics through a Travel Fellowship Award. Over 10 academics were sponsored to international scientific meetings under this scheme.
May & Baker’s financial and material contributions to various medical associations and philanthropic bodies have often been awarded with accolades.
We also introduced the May & Baker Professional Service Award in Pharmacy in 2005, to reward hard work and excellence in the practice of pharmacy in Nigeria. The award remains the first of its type in pharmacy practice in Nigeria.
We have also been active in moulding the nation’s future workforce by offering opportunities to students in tertiary institutions to do their industrial attachment and internship. Every year, scores of these interns and industrial attaches are given places in our company to put into practice what they have been taught in school.
We also ran a national campaign against fake and substandard products in the country aimed at enlightening the public on the dangers of fake and substandard products, while complementing the efforts of the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) in this area.
In 2008, May & Baker renovated several children’s wards in hospitals in some states of the federation, and in the communication of her 70 years anniversary, the company donated well-equipped sickbays to three public primary schools in Lagos State.
