Adeboye promises more humanitarian support
As RCCG Inaugurates Intensive Healthcare Centre In Ondo
The General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has promised more humanitarian projects across the country.
Adeboye made the promise while inaugurating a new intensive care centre in Ondo, Ondo State by the charity arm of RCCG, His Love Foundation (HLF).
The newly inaugurated centre, Akindayomi-Adeboye Intensive Care Centre, is the biggest healthcare intervention in Ondo and the foremost amongst several others previously commissioned by RCCG in Lagos, Ogun and Plateau states. It was inaugurated within the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital Complex, Laje Road, Ondo State.
The intensive healthcare centre, unlike others, has four units: the ICU, Kidney Dialysis Unit, Cardiac Diagnostic Unit and an X-ray unit and a 30KVA generating set.
The event had in attendance the Governor of Ondo State, Arakurin Rotimi Akeredolu, his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa; Speaker Ondo State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun; former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko and Osemawe of Ondo, Oba Dr Victor Adesimbo Kiladejo, among others.
Speaking on the vision of HLF, the Intercontinental Overseer CSR, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, noted that its mandate emanates from Matthew 25:36, which states, “I was naked, you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison and you visited me.”
He also added that the church is committed to impacting lives in all ramifications as a major core duty of God’s mandate, “as its our belief that with the commissioning of Akindayomi- Adeboye Intensive Care Centre, is a confirmation of the broadness of mind of the General Overseer and the reach of the church.”
According to Adeboye, represented by Pastor Joseph Obayemi, Continental Overseer Africa 1(North Africa) and National Overseer of RCCG, the request to upgrade the ICU centre at UNIMED came, when he visited the paramount ruler of Ondo, the Osemawe of Ondo, Oba Dr Victor Adesimbo Kiladejo in December 2020.
Commending RCCG’s effort, Akeredolu, who thanked Adeboye in particular for heeding the request of the Osamewe and always taking the church’s Christian Social Responsibilities beyond the walls of the church to different communities in the different countries where the church has its footprints, said the project would bring succour to the people, regardless of religious affiliation.
The Osamawe said he was delighted to see the ICU centre commissioned, as it came earlier than expected. He noted that the upgraded centre will be of immense benefit to Ondo kingdom and environs.
