Rotary Club of Ikoyi trains police on basic life support
The Rotary Club of Ikoyi under its basic life support training programme extended its humanitarian service to the Nigerian Police Force medical personnel with training for personnel of the Police Hospital Falomo, on the delivery of emergency support to patients.
President of the club, Rotn. Isichei Osamgbi, said the club chose the training to impact the lives of many Nigerians through its Basic Life Support because “serving and sacrificing for the betterment of humanity starts from doing things no matter how little.
“As Rotarians, our belief is that if we cannot do great things to support humanity, we can do small things to make a difference. That is why Rotary Club of Ikoyi applied so much personal goodwill in engaging philanthropists and corporate organisations to pool resources together to provide assistance and support to the needy in our environs,” he said.
The Deputy Force Medical Officer, Police Hospital Falomo, Obembe Modupe, expressed gratitude to the club for choosing the hospital out of many to carry out their wonderful projects, saying the training will touch lives and equip the trainees with the requisite knowledge to excel in their profession.
On his part, Dr. Hassan Adelakeen, the instructor from the American Heart Foundation, who facilitated the session, noted that the training comes with its full international certification of its organization and will equip the trainees with the requisite knowledge and skills to deliver excellent medical services to the needy in the society.
The Basic Life Support (BLS) training is one the Rotary Club of Ikoyi’s major project geared towards touching lives in its community directly. The project is supported by the Rotary District 9110 grant and has been hailed by the District Governor, Dr. Wale Ogunbadejo, as being of immerse benefit to the society as a major lifesaver.
The BLS Project Coordinator, Past President Charles Okonkwo, said the club would always partner with the hospital to train its staff and carry out more projects to help upgrade the standard for the betterment of the Nigeria Police Force and its community.
