Rotary Club donates hand washing unit, PPEs to school, PHC
The Rotary Club of Maryland has donated foot-operated hand wash sanitising unit, infrared thermometers, face shields and masks, among other essential items, to Command Day Secondary School, Ikeja, to strengthen its safety protocol preparation ahead of the school’s resumption.
The club also planted trees in the school compound to commemorate this year’s world tree-planting day marked every July 14.
As part of its commitment towards containing the spread of coronavirus in Lagos, the club also donated pregnancy kits to pregnant women at Maryland Primary Health Centre (PHC), with Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), while it rehabilitated toilet facilities at the Onigbongbo neighborhood market.
Presenting the materials during the official visit of the District 9110 Governor, Rotary International, Bola Oyebade, to his home club, president of the club, Obafemi Obadina, said the donated items would help in not only curtailing the spread of the virus but enhance public awareness of the pandemic in the grassroots.
Speaking at the event, the district governor said the project initiated by the club is laudable and would be used to contain the spread of coronavirus in the school, especially as parents await the resumption of schools.
Receiving the items, the Acting Commandant, Command Day Secondary School, Ikeja, Major Olalekan Dimeji Bamiteko, commended the donation of the foot-operated hand wash and sanitiser booth, noting that it was something the school never anticipated.
He said the donations would assist in meeting the school resumption’s protocols and guidelines as directed by the government and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to schools, in addition to the already installed 28 hand-wash/sanitiser units at the entrance of the school.
