‘We cannot keep donating to the hospital if we don’t have people like you, Doctors, Nurses and hospital staff who are committing yourselves to look after the University staff and students.  This donation is a higher call to humanity to support a cause and because of that, on behalf of UGBS, I want to say a big thank you to our donors,’ he indicated.

Prof. Bawole continued by highlighting the strides UGBS is making to maximise the work that the Hospital performs.

The items were received by Dr. Timothy Senunyeme, Acting Director of the University Health Services

“As a school, we have tried in our small way to support the hospital. Not long ago, we made a donation of $100,000 to support the hospital construct some additional consulting rooms. We also committed money to develop the proposal to look for funding to build the Paediatrics unit and through that proposal, we are aware we have secured sponsorship in excess of $1.2 billion for the project.” Prof. Bawole disclosed.

Dr. Timothy Senunyeme, Acting Director of the University Health Services, thanked UGBS and the donors for their support and promised that the supplies would be used effectively.
