The First Child And Prisoners Care Foundation (FCAPCF) has donated Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to the National Hospital, Abuja to support the Federal Government’s fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Executive Director, FCAPCF, Amb. Martins Efe on Tuesday said that the fight to rid the country of Covid-19 should be a collective effort.
Represented by the North Central Coordinator, FCAPF, Mr Olushola Afuye, Efe noted that since the virus had no cure more efforts should be put in place to fight the scourge.
“We advocate creating a healthy environment for the medical personnel because it is only when they are alive that they can help treat the people with the virus.
“And that is why we are here to support the Federal Government in our own way by donating these items to fight the scourge,” he said.
Efe said that the Foundation had been giving Palliatives to several people to support the Federal Government, adding that the need to extend it to the medical personnel was necessary.
He said that the medical personnel were at the forefront as such needed to be protected from contracting the virus.
Receiving the donations on behalf of the National Hospital, Deputy Chairman Medical Advisory committee, Dr Olarewanju Falodun, thanked the foundation for the kind gesture.
Falodun commended the foundation and assured them that the items would be judiciously used.
“We are grateful to FCAPCF for the donation. The foundation has set a standard and we hope it would continue after now. This would really go along way in protecting the medical personnel,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that items donated by the Foundation include 20 cartons of hand sanitisers, 50 cartons of face masks and 40 cartons of hand gloves.
