He said: “Since we stepped into this Model Hospital from the former General Hospital, the Islamic Society of Eggonland has been partnering with us. They have been putting a lot of smile on the faces of our patients and that of today is overwhelming. Among the wheelchairs we are using in the hospital, about three of them were donated by the ISE last two years. This year they have added. They have given us a brand new oxygen concentrator and also the Littmann Stethoscope which is number one in the world. They also gave us brand new BP Apparatus. They are adding to the value we provide here and we are grateful.”

Eggonnews found out that many of the hospitals that benefitted from the donation, were either lacking the particular equipment or were managing faulty equipment hence their excitement.

After the hospital visitation, the ISE team moved to the Wamba Custodial Centre of the Nigeria Corrections Service where as is the tradition of the ISE, the inmates were encouraged with words from the Holy Quran. They were encouraged to take advantage of their incarceration to reflect on some of the mistakes they have made in the past and seek for forgiveness from God so that they can be reformed by the time they are released to join the rest of the society.

Food items were also donated to improve the diet of the inmates during the month of Ramadan. They include: five bags of polished rice, two bags of sugar, two bags of maize, two bags of grounded millet, two cartons of fish, two cartons of seasoning cubes and one bag of salt. There is also 25 litres of Kings Oil.

The donations were received by the officer in charge of the facility, CSC Hassan Jibrin Galadima. He appreciated the ISE for the gesture especially in the month of Ramadan and with the high cost of food in the market. He assured that the donated food will be prepared for the inmates as expected.
