FRCS donates to accident victims in Delta
• Foundation distributes land to widows, others in Jalingo
To commemorate the 2017 World Day of Remembrance Day for Road Traffic Victims, the Delta State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Rindom Kumven, on Sunday visited accident victims at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba.
Represented by his deputy, Mrs. Uche Chukwurah, Kumven said this year’s theme was centered on how to reduce fatalities and injuries associated with road crashes by 50 percent by 2020.
She noted that the visit presented an opportunity for the command to strengthen its partnership with the management of the hospital “to ensure that we ‘crash the crash’ by 2020.”
Chukwurah said: “FMC was chosen because it has a larger capacity to receive accident victims. There are better equipment here. Many other hospitals end up referring their victims to either FMC in Asaba or Nnewi, Anambra State.”
She said the command was embarking on public enlightenment campaigns at motor parks to reduce road crashes during the Yuletide.
Chairman of Medical Advisory Council (CMAC) of Asaba, FMC, Dr. Emmanuel Ezunu commended FRSC for its kind gesture.
Foodstuffs, medicine, bandages and other equipment were donated to the hospital during the visit.
In a related development Ayoku Kande Foundation at the weekend distributed plots of land to the widows and the less privileged persons in Jalingo, Taraba State.
The founder of the foundation, Prince Matakhitswen Shakarau Masa-Ibi, who is also the Cultural Officer of the emirate, said the event was to mark his 43rd birthday.
He said the foundation was named after his late mother, Princess Ayoku Kande Masa-Ibi.
‘There is joy in giving and in putting smiles on peoples’ faces. The foundation will continue to reach out to persons in need,” he said.
