RCCG Province 44 donates equipment to Randle General Hospital
FOR the management and staff of Randle General Hospital, Surulere, Lagos, the gesture by The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 44, which recently donated various medical equipment worth over one million naira to the hospital, will forever remain a reference point.
Leading principal officers of the Province, Pastor in Charge, Pastor Amos Emovon, said the health sector was chosen for the Province’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme because of the importance of good health to mankind.
According to him, Randle General Hospital was also chosen because it falls within the church’s area of jurisdiction.
Items donated by the church included Phototherapy Machines, Vacuum Extractor, Nebulizer Machines, Diagnostic Sets, Baby Cots, Patient Trolleys, Portable Autoclave, Adult Scale with Heights, Infant Incubator and Three Steps Trolley.
According to him, the church takes CSR seriously as it forms a major mandate given to all Provinces by The General Overseer, Pastor E. A. Adeboye who tasked them to impact positively on the society, especially their immediate environment.
“Pastor E.A Adeboye called us together and gave the mandate that we should impact upon our host communities through Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. To underline his seriousness about this, he had to create a new position in the RCCG, the position of Assistant Pastor in Charge of the Province’s Corporate Social Responsibility and became mandatory on us to carry out this biblical injunction of helping the needy in our host community,” he said.
Assistant Pastor in Charge of Province (CSR), Pastor Ajibola Opeoluwa-Calebs, who said the Province came into being in September last year, described the donation to the hospital as their first major CSR initiative. “We have been doing several CSR projects at the area and zonal levels but this is the first as a Province and we chose to come to the health sector which is very important because we understand the impact it will have on the quality of life and health delivery”, he said. He listed other sectors to be touched to include security and education.
