The Christian Friends Society of the Archbishop Vining Memorial Church and the Salad Chops & Events Managers recently joined the league of donors of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital,(LASUTH), to encourage frontline health workers in the fight against COVID-19.
Receiving the donated items on behalf of the Hospital management, the Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo, expressed his joy at the thoughtfulness of the donors and enjoined more well-meaning Nigerians to support the Government to help fight the pandemic.
He maintained that nothing is too small as contribution or support at this time to battle the global scourge, praying that God would continue to bless and enrich those who have already donated to the cause as well as others that intend to do so.
Earlier, the President of the Society, Mr. Muyiwa Kupoluyi, opined that many people hear the success story of patients being treated and discharged in good health but not much is said about the caregivers who are ensuring these patients are getting the best treatment.
He said that the donation was borne out of concern for the safety of frontline workers who are putting their lives at risk to ensure the health of others.
While stressing that these caregivers should be pampered and protected, Kupoluyi prayed earnestly that all the ‘heroes’ of the pandemic will all come out safe and strong.
In her remarks, Mrs. Olawunmi Omotoyin of Salad Chops & Events Managers said frontline workers require a helping hand as the battle against COVID-19 continues in Lagos State.
She disclosed that this underscores the reason why her organisation came forward to donate some face shields to the Management of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) for use by frontline healthcare providers.
