School donates equipment to hospital
MOVED by the need to save mankind, The Lord’s Seeds Children’s School Gbagada, Lagos has donated medical equipment worth several thousands of Naira to the pediatric ward of the Gbagada General Hospital in Lagos. Besides the donation, the school also repainted the ward, giving it a better look.
The missionary school, owned by The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 23, also has plans to do more for the hospital in no distant time, according to Pastor (Mrs.) Helen Oyitso, a matron of the school and wife of the Pastor in charge of the Province.
She described the gesture as commendable, saying, “it is something we should all really appreciate God for, as we have children who can even think at that age and have great vision for other children.” She, however, enjoined the hospital to make good use of the items, saying to whom much is given, much is expected.
Also, the Head of School, Mrs. Folushade Omokorede, who said the gesture was part of the school’s corporate social responsibility initiatives, noted that the items were bought by the children with the help of their parents and staff of the school. She listed items donated by the school to include Oxygen Gauge, Oxygen Concentrator, Manual Suction, Bed Side Lockers, Electric Suction Machine, Ambubag, Pulse Oximeter, Weighting Scale, ceiling fans, bedspreads and windowblind.
The school also paid the DSTV subscription fees of the Ward for a period of one year. On the rationale for the gesture, a patron who is also the Assistant Pastor in charge of the Province’s CSR, Pastor Ade Omokorede, said it was borne out of the need to positively impact the neighborhood as directed by The General Overseer, Pastor E. A Adeboye. “This is our third visit to The General Hospital Gbagada, as a province. We were here in December last year, under the leadership of the Pastor-in -charge of the Province, Pastor Brown Oyitso, to donate some equipment.
The school decided to choose this place again to affect the lives of children who are patients in this hospital”, he said. Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Lawal Tayo, expressed gratitude to the school and the Province for the gesture. He said this would go a long way to complement efforts by the government to make the hospital conducive to patients.
