Well-meaning Nigerians Make Donation to LASUTH
Much needed donations are pouring in from well-meaning Nigerians to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH). This time, it’s from the Winifred Igweonwu Foundation in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Lekki Golden District 9110.
The chairperson of the foundation, Rotarian Winifred Igweonwu praised the effort of health workers in Nigeria and especially Lagos State on their effort in combating the Covid-19 pandemic. She says her foundation is founded on the premise of “lending a hand whenever we can and that is why we are giving these to the hospital. It doesn’t seem like much but we can’t fold our hands and do nothing.”
The Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo also a Rotarian himself, appreciated and commended the effort of the foundation and encouraged them to continue to do more as no gift is too small at these times, “we are currently spending a lot of money on protective kits for our medical personnel and donations such as this will go a long way to reduce the burden on the hospital.” Prof. Fabamwo used the opportunity to encourage well-meaning Nigerians to give, “so that we all can as one body fight this scourge.”
Present at the donation are the Ag. Director of Clinical Services and Training (DCST), Dr. Adekoya; Assistant Director Nursing Services, Mrs. Adebola Aina; Ag. Director of HR/Admin Mr. Savage; Rt. Dr. Bamidele Ayodele and Rt. Dr. Deinde Shoga who is a past president of Gbagada Rotary.
The Winifred Igweonwu foundation donated hand sanitizers, bed sheets, infrared thermometers and some other hospital supplies.
