A group of doctors under the aegis of the Global Health Adolescent and Development Initiative have donated medical supplies to three health centres to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Osun state.


The doctors are Ayilola Babatunde, Atoyebi Temiloluwa, Awede Kehinde, Adedoyin Samson, Salami Olatubosun, Gambo Emmanuel and Olaobaju Oluwatosin Isaac.

The health facilities the materials were donated to are Aderemi public health centre, Ile-Ife; Enuwa primary health care, Ile-Ife; and Osun state hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo.

Babatunde, the team lead, said they donated face masks, alcohol-based hand sanitisers, hand washes, face shields, 60 litre-buckets and taps.





“We designed, printed and pasted posters with necessary information about COVID-19 and preventing its spread in English and Yoruba languages,” the team lead said.

“These posters were pasted at strategic locations around the hospital entrances, the accident and emergency sections and other points of first contact within these health care facilities.

“At Aderemi health centre, we met the administrative staff, Mrs. Adefisoye Folasade, Mrs. Taiwo Bada, Mrs. Tijani Azizat, led by Mrs. A.O. Omole who appreciated our kind gesture of reaching out and the supplies donated.

“At the Enuwa primary health care centre, we were warmly received by the matron and other administrative heads. They took turns to express their heartfelt gratitude to the Global Adolescent Health and Development Initiative and the Pollination Project, USA.


“Dr. Bello, the consultant in charge of Osun state hospital Asubiaro, Osogbo, also had a lengthy discussion with us filled with much appreciation and encouragement giving accolades to the Osun state government and soliciting more input from both the government and non-profit organisations.”

He expressed gratitude to the Pollination Project, USA “for their benevolence”, and said they hope to receive more funding from other donors as they continue the implementation of the project.
