National Hospital’s Ambassador Club Donates To Indigent Patients, Orphanage Home

The Ambassador Club of National Hospital, Abuja as part of her yearly commitment has again given to indigent patients of the hospital as well as the Unity Children Home.

Speaking to journalists at the end of their visitation to the orphanage home in Abuja on Thursday, Dr. Tayo Hasstrup, Spokesperson of the hospital said the club which has been in existence for seven years sources it’s funds from spirited Nigerians.

According to him, the essence of the club is to give back to a system where you are working and not only there, but also other hospitals.

“They are also extending this humanitarian service to other hospitals and this is why we believe that Ambassador Club, National Hospital should be a club to be emulated by others even from other ministries and parastatals, he said. “It’s a great idea for staff to come together and to make sure they support people that are in need, he reiterated.

“The club is sending messages to people that it is not only to take but you are also to give out and this club has been very wonderful,” he said.

Haastrup commended the patron of the club for the initiative of setting up the club saying that it had attracted more staff to join in reaching out to indigent Nigerians.

While also commending the hospital management who had given a conducive environment to operate, he called on well meaning Nigerians to support the gesture of the club in reaching out to the less privileged.

Mr. Abdulkareem Hussaini, National Planning Committee of the club said the club would continue to partner with government and other Non-governmental Organisations to source for funds to cater for the needs of the less privileged.

He said, “this year, we have a humanitarian week to see how we can touch the lives of the less privileged. We are supporting groups within the national hospital and around and we are able to touch lives.

“We give helping hands to indigent patients. As a club, we are talking to people l am also talking to some spirited individuals and asking them for partnership.

“But so far so good, we are sourcing our funds within ourselves. From our little salary we earn, we are able to touch a lot of lives, we are able to pay a lot of bills for patients that cannot afford to pay their bills,” he said.

In the same vein, the National President of the club, Thomas Boyibi, promised to continue to reach out to the less privileged by bringing them out of their homes to have a feeling of what is happening in the society.

“This is the campaign we have been doing in the past five years. We have been calling on NGOs to support us in whatever we are doing.

“Year in year out, we continue to reach out to the pro. Why we intend to do as time goes on, is to visit them and bring them out and take them to picnic to have a feel of what is going on in the society,” he said.

Responding, Mrs Janet Ogar, representative of the Unity Children Home, thanked the management of the club for their kind gesture in helping the needy especially in this trying times.
