A philanthropic organisation, Frontier Club, has renovated and supplied bedding materials to the government-owned General Hospital, Abejukolo, the headquarters of Omala Local Government Area of kogi State.
The Club has also awarded scholarship to 49 indigent students in the community.
North Central Trust reports that the materials were handed over to the hospital’s management recently.
The club Chairman, Abubakar Sani, stated that in line with the objective of the club, which is ‘service to humanity’, the bedding materials are to enhance the function of the hospital in its service delivery to the community.
He added that the scholarship scheme was embarked upon in order to assist indigent students to further their education and become better persons in the society .
Dr Olukoya Kehinde, the head of the government-owned General Hospital , Abejukolo, who received the materials on behalf of the hospital management, described the group as a credible organisation that is out to assist individuals and communities in solving their challenges.
He said the donation came at the right time as some beddings being used at the hospital were terribly bad.
Dr Kehinde who pleaded for more assistance in view of the deplorable condition of the hospital, lamented that the hospital lacked equipment like oxygen kits and an electricity generating set to handle emergency cases.
The chairman of the club noted that as part of their service to humanity, the club decided to provide, “30 mattresses, 30 bed sheets and 30 pillow cases to the hospital to improve its operation”.
