Musa Halilu Ahmed Foundation steps up campaign against scourge
• Donates Prevention Kits To LASUTH, Residents
A non-profit organisation, committed to promoting good health and wellbeing for the underserved in Nigeria, Musa Halilu Ahmed Foundation, has begun distributing prevention kits to Lagos residents. It also donated kits to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) to prevent and halt the spread of the virus.
The fight against the novel coronavirus being spearheaded by the foundation is borne out of the organisation’s proactive drive to help citizens and government fight the virus, which is gradually spreading across the country.
The Founder and Executive Director of the Foundation, Alhaji Musa Halilu Ahmed, said: “Never has it been more critical to prepare, provide and protect underserved communities in Lagos State from the lingering disease burden. The choice of donating protective kits to frontline responders and marginalised residents was a deliberate decision to consolidate the government’s effort in halting the spread…”
LASUTH management led by Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo commended the foundation, saying the act was laudable, at such a critical point in time, where the government alone is unable to fight the scourge.
He encouraged other organisations to take a cue and emulate the gestures of the foundation in ensuring the spread of the coronavirus remains minimal.
The foundation’s team led by Sam Ejiwunmi urged Nigerians to ensure they take precautionary measures at all time and stay safe, be aware and calm.
