Last weekend for us at the movement played host to a great moment as we were joined in our annual hospital visitation this year by the Managing Director of Toyota Nigeria, Mr Kunle Ade-Ojo.
In accordance with the movement annual activities, hospital visitation is that event that caters for the immediate discharge of patients within the movement’s approved list and in the course of visiting each hospitals, certain amounts were given to offset each stranded patient’s bill.
Dr Tola Olukilede, the President of the movement who has been given this mandate said while speaking to members of the movement during last Sunday’s visit to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) that the MD of Toyota Nigeria, Mr Kunle Ade-Ojo deemed it fit to join the Movement in this hospital visitation, following series of her humanitarian works so far. While speaking to the Movement staffs and few members of the Movement’s Board of Trustee present, he also added that;
“We are doing this so that we won’t be sick or touch our back on a hospital bed”.
Visit to LASUTH for the Movement has always been annual and during this year’s edition, Mr. Lawal (Social Welfare officer, LASUTH) noted that two of the patients prayed for in the previous year and most especially a particular patient who was placed on some life-support machines got their health restored while the other one also regained her healing. While speaking to us he noted that there has always been a remarkable difference in patients wellness each time the movement visited. For this reason, he added that the authority has given the movement permission to walk around all wards there is in the hospital.
Among the several hospital wards visited were the; surgical ward, Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Pediatric, burns unit etc.
Following the words of prayer that were said at each ward in the hospital, certain amount of cash was set aside to offset listed patients hospital bill. At LASUTH, closely a million naira was expended to cover for patients medical bill.
One of the rare cases covered during the Movement’s visit at LASUTH was that of a young girl who needs to undergo an eye surgery for an empty socket of hers.
Heal the World Movement visits First Hospital in Nigeria (Sacred Heart Hospital established since 1895)
Sacred Heart Hospital in Lantoro, Abeokuta was also one of the Movement’s regularly visited hospitals and it made the list again this past Saturday.
In this year’s visit to the foremost hospital in Nigeria, the movement’s focus was more on infants.
A total of six infants and one adult, making seven patients got their medical bills offset. Most of the infant whose bills were offset were premature babies whose health condition needed serious and immediate medical attention. In a chat with Mr. Anthony Adili, the Administrative officer of Sacred Heart Hospital it was gathered that these babies need quite a lot of things to survive, one of which he emphasized was a power supply.
“Even when there is no light here, we always ensure there is a constant supply of power with our inverter system in place”.
Just as usually done, the President of the Movement, Dr. Tola Olukilede led the delegation of members of the Movement and firstly administered the oil and later prayer to sick patients.
Due to the sensitivity of hospital pictures released to the media in recent time, certain ward pictures were not allowed to be taken.
